Country Arts SA in partnership with the Adelaide Festival Centre

presents the inaugural Breaking Ground exhibition

30 June – 29 July 2012

30 June – 29 July 2012

An exhibition of work by Yvonne East combining traditional

drawing and painting techniques with multimedia installation to

investigate the physical and psychological connection with the

Australian landscape.

Acknowledged in folklore, fiction and film the Australian landscape

has an extraordinary influence on its inhabitants. This work

interrogates the psyche of land and the unique dissonance created

by the comparison of the urban and rural. The body, mind and

soul are represented by subjects caught in the stasis of what may

be religious epiphany. Charcoal drawings of the human figure

become a metaphor for the tension between the internal mind and

how we relate to the ‘outside’ environment and community. Uniting

old masters techniques with 21st century technology, we are

encouraged to see how the Australian environment correlates to

our psychological state as an individual and as a society.

Breaking Ground is the
