The exhibition Forest Obscura brings together four multidisciplinary artists all inspired by the theme of nature-human relationship. The artistic responses to the theme offer a wide range of interpretations, visions, styles and disciplines –from printmaking, digital, drawing, video, sound and installation, enriching and challenging our perceptions of our relationship with nature.
In Tasmania there are many forests but the one that stands out as the most mysterious and inaccessible is the Tarkine or Takayna forest wilderness situated in the North West of the state. This rain forest is unique in that many of the flora and fauna species are ancient and don’t exist in other places in the world; it is also recognised as being a living remnant of prehistoric forest.
