Drylands considers changes to the Western Australian landscape of the Wheatbelt, Southern and Great Southern regions. It features painterly observations of the land following decades of deforestation, fire regimes, the impacts of climate change, increasing salinity and loss of biodiversity. The artworks picture receding islands of trees, canola fields in full bloom and dry, lone trees and empty scarred landscapes silently mourning the loss of bio and geo-diversity.
This exhibition includes artwork from the Janet Holmes à Court Collection and invited artists.
