Remote Nature Response: works by Ash Keating

About

Remote Nature Response at The Wilderness Gallery, Cradle Mountain“Ash Keating’s new panoramic body of work sits firmly within the pantheon of landscape painting. Like von Guerard before him, Keating has responded to the sheer beauty and mesmerising power of an untamed, pristine and wild landscape: Cradle Mountain and it’s surrounds in Tasmania’s north-west. However, unlike von Guerard and others who painted the landscape as a vista which we viewed, Keating’s works are paintings which we experience.

Created as one work, the eight abstract paintings that make up Remote Nature Response gradually change from a silvery white to a deep, dense black: each a new experience of the subject. While they are not one expansive image nor meant to be experienced as a linear narrative, they do reflect on the change of light and weather and the morphing of the landscape within this context. They place the viewer within the work and ethereally combine both the terrestrial formations of the landscapes and the atmospheric conditions which change our experience, engagement and perception of it.”  Dr Vincent Alessi

Remote Nature Response was part of Dark Mofo in 2015.
