As far as the eye can see celebrates the contemporary topography of both landscape and printmaking. The exhibition challenges these doubly conventional themes through the work of twenty-two Australian artists whose work reflects the breadth and depth of print practice in Australia today.
From Aboriginal desert story-tellers and knowledge keepers, through the regional experience of World Heritage sites and journeys from city to country (or simply from place to place), to the urban printmaker’s challenge of speaking up in the face of climate change and mining, the common thread running through the exhibition is a deep respect for the land and a desire to continue sharing a meaningful relationship with it. These artists make it clear that in a virtual, digital and mechanical age the need to remain connected to the natural world has never been more urgent.
