ABOVE AND BELOW: AUSTRALIAN LANDSCAPES FROM THE GALLERY'S
Opens 2 August 2014
Santos Atrium & Gallery 6
Renderings of distant night skies, vast tracks of desert, meandering rivers or close up views
of insects inhabiting the earth all belong to the rich Australian landscape tradition.
Above and Below focuses on examples of artistic responses to the Australian landscape
taken from dramatic viewpoints and includes works by celebrated artists Fred Williams, William
Robinson and Gulumbu Yunupingu among others. New acquisitions by George Tjungurrayi and John
Olsen are also among the many highlights.
