“Water Trees,” Kylie Fogarty, 2013
BORN from a  fascination with  the Australian landscape, its flora and fauna,  Cindy Wilkins’ camera  has focused on untouched Australian landscapes, revealing those “hidden geographical habitats” that we may not normally have been able to capture.

“I endeavour to capture images that invite you to consider those often-overlooked features and natural beauty of Australia,” says Wilkins.

A new joint exhibition at Strathnairn Gallery, “Two Views,” is an interpretation of Australian landscape, flora and fauna by Canberra visual artist Kylie Fogarty and photographer Cindy Wilkins, of Worldscape Imagery.

“I endeavour to capture images that invite you to consider those often-overlooked features and natural beauty of Australia,” says Wilkins.

The hues of the land are seen in Fogarty’s abstract forms. Her close observations of this landscape has allowed her to approach the subject matter in various ways, including  pen and ink, and  mixed media monotypes to explore her fascination and memories of the same subject matter that has inspired Wilkins through the lens of her camera.

“Two Views – An Interpretation of Australian Native Landscape, Flora and Fauna”  at Strathnairn Arts, Holt, July 19-August 4, Friday to Sunday 10am-4.30pm.

Opening 3.30pm Saturday July 20 by Sue Taylor, Archibald Portrait Prize finalist. All welcome.
