s itude FNQ artist Ch­eryl Harrison’s lat­est exhibition fea­tures the trans­la­tion of time and place into mixed me­dia works on can­vas. Re­spond­ing to the nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment, Harrison takes note of the time of day in which par­tic­u­lar shapes cap­ture her at­ten­tion. These form ti­tles for her ab­stract paint­ings that seek to rein­ter­pret the poignancy of the cre­ative mo­ments. Travers­ing the Aus­tralian land­scape over the past 25, through a dis­parate body of work by a sig­nif­i­cant group of 39 artists work­ing in var­i­ous me­dia, Coun­try and Western reaf­firms the im­pact land­scape ex­erts on the na­tional psy­che. In re­cent decades, the world has come to ac­cept in­dige­nous art as the au­then­tic, defin­ing im­age of the Aus­tralian land­scape. Shay Ram­pal is an emerg­ing in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary artist based in Cairns. The World Her­itage area in which she lives in­flu­ences Ram­pal’s in­stal­la­tion and pho­to­graphs. Her works are cre­ated us­ing sea­sonal de­tri­tus and de­bris to cre­ate ephemeral, vis­ual and au­ral works. Avifauna ex­plores the tem­po­rary and cyclic en­vi­ron­ment of the trop­ics.
