Shaded – the other Australian landscape
In Australian Art lore, the moment that we have ‘discovered’ an artistic identity was the moment that the artists were first able to accurately capture the uniqueness of Australian light. Its bright starkness celebrated while the dark, hidden recesses remain unexplored. In the absence of light, shaded and shadowy areas of our landscape have become potent symbols, full of mystery and trepidation of the Australian Landscape. Shaded: The other Australian landscape explores this overlooked aspect of the landscape, bringing light to the shadows.
