Big Tree Notes
- Greg Weight

Artist talk Sunday 20 September 2pm
Bookings essential – RSVP here

Sydney photographer Greg Weight is blurring the boundaries between the reality of the photograph and the impressionistic act of painting in his new exhibition Big Tree Notes. The age-old tension between the two art cousins, photography and painting, has been resolved in a new way through Greg’s creation of a unique series of paintographs.

The NSW coastal forests have replaced Weight’s previous muses, the night skies and landscapes of Central Australia. In these new works the textures and details of the colonial landscape of Hill End were followed by a celebration of coastal trees enhanced by the application of paint over photograph’s on canvas.

I dedicate this exhibition to my sister
Diana Tansley Webber
