Landscapes from the Anthropocene
October 15 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until October 25, 2020
Landscapes from the Anthropocene is a textile and mixed media art exhibition by Blue Mountains artist Martin Roberts. The exhibition being held at Springwood’s Braemar Gallery explores the concept of the Anthropocene: the proposed geological age which coincides with the start of significant human impact on Earth’s geology and ecosystems.
The pieces are textile based, with layers of fabrics painted and stitched on, and with a variety of other mixed media. Found objects are added to create layers of images and textures, exploring how humans are impacting the climate and ecosystems. The artworks, created over last summer’s catastrophic bushfire season were very much influenced by the artist’s response to the persistent smoke, fire and stress experienced during this time.
