Large-scale works in oil
depicting the artist’s response to the landscape,
by SAC Resident Artists
Annette Macgown and Katherine Perrott.
Annette Macgown’s work draws inspiration from a series of photographic field trips into the evocative, glaciated landscape of Tasmania’s central highlands; misty remote indelible and bleak; yet inherently dominated by the monumental infrastructure of the ‘Tas’ hydro-electric power scheme. Her work challenges the viewer to see the industrial landscape in a different light.
Katherine Perrott’s underlying influence in this body of work was the relationship of the human response to the natural world, specifically referencing the sense of connection when traversing a landscape which is inherently remote or wild. Perrott hopes that her work will evoke thoughts which promote a sense of awe and respect for an environment which is both powerful and nurturing at the same time.
