From the artist

This work aims to create disturbances in particularly iconic landscapes. Most Australians live in large urban areas less that 50km from the coast, and have done so since white settlement. Yet we have a fascination with ‘the bush’ that appears deeply ingrained in our national psyche, and have sought to represent it in a multitude of forms. This work takes a filmic, yet painterly approach to the actual landscape seen by John Glover.
