Survey II.v 1994 – 2018 at Mandurah WA

The Mandurah WA leg of my Bunbury Regional Art Gallery (BRAG) Touring Exhibition opens on Sunday 14th this month at 4.00pm at the Alcoa Mandurah Art Gallery, Mandurah, Western Australia

This showing has been curated and hung by Gary Aitken based on the original BRAG show in 2017 curated and organised by Julian Bowron

Julian Bowron has kindly agreed to open the show, as he understands my work as well as I do and as he was guilty of the idea for this show

The Saturday Pic

Today’s pic’ is about what we have lost to remind us that we must preserve the tattered remnants of our once magnificent forests that survive, I assess about 4.8% of original south west Western  Australian forest cover remains. I have chosen a picture of diversity rather than a more obvious big trees pic’. Shown in this image are examples of most of the higher slope karri belt forest trees, including a banksia in the foreground. Lower down a slope there would be delights like bullitch and river banksia. Although the trees are fairly small they are diverse, without the monotony of “regenerated” forest, which has the visual excitement of Regency wallpaper

Now get ye to the Alexander Library at 3.00pm this afternoon
