This exhibition considers how nature and landscape continue to preoccupy contemporary painters. Not nature based on observation, however, but a realm of vivid imaginary landscapes, creatures both natural and unnatural, and humans who seem to emerge like wood sprites from the forest. The ‘wild’ here is found in the mind of the artists.
Wilderness brings together 14 of Australia’s best contemporary painters, including Del Kathryn Barton, Daniel Boyd, Tony Clark, Louise Hearman, Mary Scott, Fiona Lowry and Michael Zavros.
