ART – Art Gallery of NSW: Balnaves Contemporary Painting

*

  • 5 March – 23 May 2010
Wilderness is the first in a new series of biennial exhibitions funded by the Balnaves Foundation. Wilderness is a painting exhibition focussing on art that considers how nature and landscape are as entwined in our minds, memories and imaginations as much as they are in any empirical fact. The exhibition is not about observed landscape, but about imagined regions, psychological landscapes, creatures both natural and unnatural, the importance that ideas of the ‘wild’ still play in our minds and lives, and how we inscribe nature with memory and meaning. Inevitably there is often an uncanny or haunting quality to the works in the exhibition. Artists include: Del Kathryn Barton, Stephen Bush, Andrew Browne, Tony Clark, Julie Fragar, Louise Hearman, Fiona Lowry, Nigel Milsom, James Morrison, Alex Pittendrigh, Mary Scott Megan Walch and Michael Zavros
