The landscape and the natural world have been a long-time preoccupation of artists, but the means by which they are depicted are subject to complex cultural influences.
Drawing from the Cruthers Collection of Women’s Art and the UWA Art Collection’s rich store of Australian prints, Worldwide Backyard juxtaposes prints from the early 20th century with works from contemporary Australian artists who have utilised print to analyse the construction of the ‘natural’ world.Featured artwork: Susanna Castleden, 2003, Filtered Visions III, screen-print and mapping pins on board, 131 x 87cm, CCWA 762 © courtesy the artist.
