During the closure of the Gallery we have looked deep into the Collection to rediscover and draw out photographs, sculptures and paintings by artists who define and redefine the way we see and experience the Australian landscape. From grass fields, desert plains, salt lakes and bushlands, these works each take a point of view from which the artists show a connection to the land they depict and a trace of the history within it. Walking through landscape questions the very nature of our relationship to the environment and the concept of land, knowledge and cultural connection.
