Genius loci

The landscape is a rich starting point for the exploration of a broad variety of topics. From the connection to Country of Australia’s First Peoples through to the contemporary re-imagining of what a landscape is, artists celebrate the beauty, power and fragility of the natural world. In this exhibition the artists share a common interest in landscape. Working with glass they respond in a variety of ways to challenge the viewer’s perception of what is often regarded as a stylistically rigid genre.
