Wilderness: A Natural Response – Terry Swann

Exhibition and Shows

12 Nov 2019 to 23 Nov 2019

Wilderness: A Natural Response, an exhibition from renowned Australian landscape watercolourist, Terry Swann, opens at fortyfivedownstairs, Melbourne, at 5pm on Tuesday 12 November 2019.

The works created over two-years, reflect Swann’s unique perspective of the contrasting landscapes of Western Australia and the Northern Territory’s most remote wilderness, including the Pilbara, East and West
Kimberly and the Tanami Desert. From the abstract angular beauty and chromatic drama of desert landscapes marked by time and an unrelenting dry; to the lush relief of azure hot springs and waterholes, reflecting life’s movement and vitality; Swann captures an immediacy of place expressed in vivid hues.

Swann covered her vastest distances yet to create her latest body of plein art painting and worked in extreme conditions to capture the essence of these remote Australian landscapes.

Swann has exhibited extensively for the last 30 years in New South Wales and Queensland. Wilderness: A Natural Response, is her third Melbourne solo exhibition.
