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.
