ANNE GRAHAM – INSTALLATION
BOYD McMILLAN – ARTIST Ink/Watercolour, Acrylic
To be included in exhibition, a selection of Photographs focusing on iconic regional imagery.
A premier Australian Heritage Festival Event at Lithgow. Professor Anne Graham’s installation, ‘Gardens of Stone’ will be showcased in the Gang Gang Gallery’s main gallery space, surrounded by an array of photographs of the birds of that country and watercolour works capturing some of its extraordinary landscapes.
A film portraying the beauty and potential of the proposal to create a State Conservation Zone in this area will also be showing continuously in the adjoining studio gallery. Viewing these works in the country of their inspiration, linked to the possibility of visiting that country whilst in the region, makes this an experience that will touch multiple senses.
A WORD FROM THE ARTIST –
In 2015 I completed a short residency at The Big C Gallery in Bilpin, NSW. Yuri and Rae Bolotin introduced me to the Gardens of Stone. The Aboriginal occupation of this place dates back at least 11,000 years. It is a special place that we must preserve, Activities such as off-road driving and mining can destroy this heritage. I want in this work to at least begin to draw attention to this magical place. I have used discarded woolen blankets, rubbish I suppose from our affluent society, to draw attention, as Charles Darwin said to: “Nature which is power incessantly ready for action and is immeasurably superior to man’s feeble efforts as the works of nature are to those of Art.
