“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature – the assurance that dawn comes after night and spring come after winter.”
The words of Rachel Carson, founder of the contemporary environmental movement and advocate of nature and environmental ethics, underpins the vision for this exhibition. This exhibition explores the flux and flow of nature through the diversity of nature’s complex movements in all its manifestations. These movements may be seasonal, daily or global. Through the forms of paint, paper and photography, Turner, Rodden and Carroll reveal the fluctuating cycles in nature’s constant changing seasons.
For Turner, Australia’s natural environment is a place of immersion, presence and connection with the soul; an escape from our busy commercial world and a return to pure atmosphere and awe.
Guided by his emotional response to the environment, Turner uses his lens as his paintbrush to free nature’s light and colour caught in a living stasis, transforming them to unveil exquisite, untouched, visual symphonies that evoke a full spectrum of emotional connections with our natural world.
