Grasslands – Glyphs - G.W. Bot

Melbourne, 10 Aug 2017 — 27 Aug 2017

“My studio is in the grasslands, west of Canberra. I have been living and working in this environment now for decades. At first I noticed things that lie on and under the grasslands - now I am noticing the grasses themselves - a myriad of different languages that whisper and dance in every direction. The grasses are home to many creatures, including the Little Eagle which now has become a rare and endangered species. All of this is under constant threat of development. I notice that we haven’t got the balance right between protection of the land and our constant destruction of it. This exhibition is of these grasslands.” G.W. Bot 2017 All prints were printed by the artist in her Canberra studio, BB Press. Bronze sculptures cast by Nick Stranks, Sculpture Workshop, School of Art, Australian National University, Canberra.

By a thousand cuts - Glenda Orr

Melbourne, 10 Aug 2017 — 27 Aug 2017

Glenda Orr’s first exhibition with Australian Galleries showcases the artist’s immense technical skill, her strong social consciousness and deep reverence for the natural world. Orr’s major current concern is the threat from coal mining to the Bimblebox Nature Refuge in the central Queensland Galilee basin. This exhibition presents two major series of works; the Bimblebox Skymap series of etchings with blind embossing and paintings in sap, and a series of constructed axe-based landscapes which involve repeated bleed print etchings, including the monumental six metre long Monoculture and Offsetting suites of etchings.
