Un/Touched Wilderness

The concept of the Tasmanian Wilderness as seen through eight contemporary Tasmanian Artists

About

Un/Touched Wilderness contrasts the grand narrative of the untamed natural wilderness of Tasmania, often coveted through the tradition of landscape painting, with contemporary artists exploring this landscape on a micro level; collecting, containing, classifying and creating from the diverse ecosystems that form these sweeping vistas. These works make our ecosystems more visible and tangible, while highlighting both the beauty and fragility of our natural surrounds.

Artists: Lorraine Biggs, Irene Briant, Selena de Carvalho, Samantha Dennis, Anastasia Gardyne, Sara Maher, Aviva Reed and Mary Scott

Works from DCC Permanent Collection: Max Angus, Les Blakebrough and Lauren Black, Jack Carington Smith, Don Carter, Annie Cocker, Peter Dombrovskis, Gladstone Eyre, Owen Lade, C Maxwell, Sophie Stephanoni

Concept and initial curation: Erin Wilson

 

This exhibition has been supported by the Contemporary Art Tasmania Touring Program Exhibition Development Fund.
