This exhibition presents works by a wide range of South Australian and indigenous artists dating from across almost two centuries that provokes thought about artists’ connections with natural and human altered environments. It explores the relationship between documentary recording and abstractions induced by technical considerations, composition, and recall. Landscape is a means by which artists can engage with and explore their world; and overarching that is the need to represent one’s individual and cultural identity, a human response to our lives and experiences in different places we encounter.

South Australian content, either by location or its maker, is exhibited; with a strong emphasis on important artists and paradigm shifts in the society since its inception in 1856.

Presented by Royal South Australian Society of Arts
