Forest Obscura : Leigh Hobba, Yvonne Rees-Pagh, Jennifer Marshall, Milan Milojevic.
31 January to 15 March 2020
The exhibition ‘Forest Obscura’ brings together four multidisciplinary artists each inspired by the theme of nature-human relationships.
The artistic responses to the theme offer a wide range of interpretations, visions, styles – from etching, woodblock, digital imagery overlay, drawing, video, sound and installation, enriching and challenging our perceptions of our relationship with nature.
In Tasmania there are many wilderness areas but the one that stands out as the most mysterious and inaccessible is the Tarkine or takayna, Australia’s largest cool temperate rainforest. Situated here in the north west of the state, the rain forest is unique in that many of the flora and fauna species are ancient and simply do not exist in other places in the world.
The Tarkine is also recognised as being a living remnant of prehistoric forest. It is this amazing forest that has inspired the artists in the creation of their art for this exhibition.
