Land Forms

3 Tasmanian artists look at Colonialism's effect on the land.


Land Forms is an art exhibition by three Tasmanian artists whose practice concerns agricultural practices since Western colonisation. Printmaker John Ingleton examines wrought iron patterns from Hobart’s colonial buildings, noting European floral decoration transposed to a new continent as the ballast in sailing ships. Julia Knight uses rare fragments of squandered Tasmanian timbers for her carvings and expressive Launceston painter Carol Barnett compares the rich land described by Lachlan Macquarie’s journals to today’s denuded and burnt midlands.
