Wendy Havard & Jacqui Christians - 'Terrainium'
Wednesday 18 July - Sunday 12 August 2018
“How does the physical landscape we live in determine our responses, create our conception of existence, inform our thinking, define our relationship to nature and give us a sense of belonging?
Two artists, from a cool temperate environment, travelled together to explore a contrasting new terrain, to emotionally embed themselves in this landscape, where life exists on the edge of extremes. We reawakened a relationship to an ‘other land’ and found the animism of a mystic environment through creative interpretation.
Responding to this landscape through colour, organic drawing and mark-making, the two created a unique visual language. The works in this exhibition express our shared and individual visions of our journey into Ikara, the Flinders Ranges.”
