Devonport Regional Gallery
28 August – 9 October 2021
Un/Touched Wilderness contrasts the grand narrative of the untamed natural wilderness of Tasmania, often coveted through the tradition of landscape painting, with contemporary artists exploring this landscape on a micro level; collecting, containing, classifying and creating from the diverse ecosystems that form these sweeping vistas. These works make our ecosystems more visible and tangible, while highlighting both the beauty and fragility of our natural surrounds.
Artists: Lorraine Biggs, Irene Briant, Selena de Carvalho, Samantha Dennis, Anastasia Gardyne, Sara Maher, Aviva Reed, Mary Scott
Initial concept and curation: Erin Wilson
This exhibition has been supported by the Contemporary Art Tasmania Touring Program Exhibition Development Fund.
