The Life of Inland Waters

Saturday 12 May 2018 3pm
Add to calendar
28 Derby Street, Collingwood VIC 3066
RSVP: melbourne@australiangalleries.com.au

Some audience members will be invited to collaborate with beetles and the artist
to make a print in a manner borrowed from the Surrealists and the I Ching.

‘I have immersed myself in the life world of the creeks, rivers and billabongs of this incredibly rich and fecund region. In these paintings, I am trying to show how a tropical river ecosystem can be painted as a kind of microcosm of our earth. They both map the same dynamic systems of earth, air and water and enfold the lives of plants, insects and fish.’
John Wolseley, 2018
