In June of 2010 the Art Gallery of South Australia will launch a major survey of its colonial works.

Here’s their little blurb –

South Australia Illustrated: colonial painting in the Land of Promise provides insight into the remarkable development of the colony of South Australia.  During the 1830s the British province of South Australia was promoted to emigrants as the ‘land of promise’, offering the enticing prospect of a fresh start and prosperous life. The rapidly growing colony was fortunate to have among its population several artists who were deeply inspired by their experiences in a new land including Martha Berkeley, S.T Gill, William Light, Alexander Schramm and J.M Skipper.  South Australia Illustrated offers a rich and diverse picture of the development of the colony. Drawing almost 200 works of art from the Art Gallery’s collection, the exhibition also features key works generously lent by private, state and national collections.

As an annex to this exhibition I have been selected as one of a handful of artists to offer a contemporary response to this material.  You can read a little more about this project on the From the Street page below.  I’ll be completing a large wall work in the gallery which expands upon my ongoing landscape and stenciled pattern investigations.  I’ll also be working on producing a new version of a bus stop work from a couple of years ago that will appear on North Terrace, in front of the gallery.

I’ll post images in the group exhibition section of this site as they become available.
