The Ranges | 3 Perspectives

exhibition extended to 24th of July, 2021

15 May - 24 July | Burrinja Gallery

Drawing from the vivid and lush landscape of the Dandenong Ranges, a place each artist once called home, the works in this exhibition showcase three distinctly different perspectives. 

Be captured by the unique majesty of the ranges, seen through the eyes of these brilliant Australian landscape painters.

Mary Tonkin - Ramble : Contemporary plein air landscape artist whose detailed large scale representations reflect the forest at her family’s property in Kalorama.

Fred Williams -The Upwey Years :  Australia’s most iconic landscape artist redefined painting in the Australian bush during his ‘Upwey years’ from 1963-68.

Miles Evergood - Vistas : An impressionist whose 1930’s Kalorama paintings are characterised by strong colours and expressive brushstrokes and use of palette knife.

These paintings were triggered by my awe and wonder of our oceans, their fascinating shorelines, cliffs and glorious coral reefs that as a result of global warming are being compromised. In these paintings, I hoped to portray the beauty, intricacies, diversity, complexities, atmospheres  and interconnectivity of our ocean environs and in doing so, the urgent need for action to be taken to protect them.

Sat 31 Jul - Sat 4 Sep | Burrinja Gallery

After a pandemic and a super storm, the bushfires that ravaged Victoria and NSW seem to have paled into legend. Yet we welcome each new year with an uneasy awareness that it is bushfire season. Again. However, the destruction is always followed by breathtaking regeneration. New green shoots, rebuilt homes, rallying community.

Here is a saga of deconstructed books and burnt fabric, reconstructed into a story of renewal. (Joy Serwylo)

Some they do and some they don't and some you just can't tell | Rona Green

Sat 31 Jul - Sat 4 Sep | Burrinja Gallery

Rona Green’s fanciful hand coloured linocut prints of anthropomorphised native and introduced animals explore ideas about the nature of individuality. In particular the artist is interested in the body and its potential to be the stem point for transformation.
