This joint exhibition contrasts artworks, in two distinctly different mediums, that are inspired by the Tasmanian landscape.

The juxtaposing of painting alongside photography provides a strong visual 'snapshot' of the varied ways artists can view and interpret our natural landscape. With colour and canvas works resonating with black and white print images, these works aide in conveying the impact and importance of these natural landscapes for us all.

It also demonstrates how the works, be it a painting or a photograph, can encapsulate more than just a representational mirror image through capturing a moment or experience that demands our attention and contemplation.

While these are deeply personal interpretations, the skill of the artist is in making their images resonate and also have meaning for others.
