Riverbend Glyphs
- G.W. Bot

G.W. Bot over a number of decades has developed her own personal language of landscape notation that she refers to as ‘glyphs’. These are marks that she has discovered in the landscape – including scribbles in the bark, broken twigs, shrubs and trees, marks on rocks and growth of moss – that in her drawings, relief prints, metal sculptures and ceramics become a form of an alphabet through which to relate a narrative about the Australian landscape and life itself. For many years, while in Canberra, she has admired Sidney Nolan’s Riverbend (1964), a ten metre long panorama that combined the Australian bush and mythology into one mighty lyrical vision.
