Contempora­ry take on the landscape

-

AN exhibition which throws contempora­ry light on the unique Australian landscape will be a highlight for visitors to the Wangaratta Art Gallery in autumn.

Contempora­ry Landscape Perspectiv­es

- A Group Show features the work of five contempora­ry landscape Australian painters, Max Berry, Holly Greenwood, Dan Kyle, Bronte Leighton-Dore and Andrew Pye.

The dynamic exhibition explores individual perspectiv­es of elements of the Australian bush, the terrain, landscape and key symbolism of trees and flora in their immediate environmen­t.

Wangaratta Art Gallery director Simone Nolan said all five artists are emerging as contempora­ry painters in the Australian art scene.

She said Berry, Greenwood, Kyle and Leighton-Dore are New South Wales-based (in Sydney and Blue Mountains) and the four have partnered with local artist Andy Pye.

“The group have connection­s both through friendship but also their oeuvre, their painting practice and style,” she said.

“Each artist’s surroundin­g environmen­ts are re-interprete­d in large scale paintings and works on paper and we’re excited to be hosting them at the gallery for this special event.”

Visitors can expect to be drawn in by the diversity of expression and interpreta­tion of each artist and how the simple representa­tion of the Australian Bush, eucalypt, dry creek bed or landscape can be presented in variety of mediums and styles.
