Gallery 2010 presents Crafted Land by Bryden Williams.
In Crafted Land Sydney based artist Bryden Williams will present a new installation created through a series of site-specific interactions staged on the artist’s family property in the Blue Mountains. The work references the disparate activities of landscape painting and off road driving, connecting the two in an effort to challenge a romantic ideal of the domesticated pastoral space within regional Australia. The work is a response to the select Australian pastimes of painting “en plein air” and 4WD’ing; two ways of exploring difficult off-road terrain.
Crafted Land provides the audience with an alternative means of viewing a place; to investigate and challenge the ways we negotiate landscapes.
