Wholemeal Landscape, Northern Tasmania, 2009

From the artist

This work celebrates the strong bond between bread and the landscape. Bread is made from grain (and water), which in this case, comes from the fertile areas of Northern Tasmania. Despite modernisation and the pressures on farming and our environment, we are still able to grow out own food on rich, fertile soil.
