Incinerator Art Space, 2 Small Street, Willoughby
Opening event: Saturday 22 July, 2pm – 4pm
Two painters, Jane Guthleben and Peta Dzubiel, consider the relevance of landscape in the contemporary Australian psyche. From the shabby grandeur of Guthleben’s still life-landscapes to Dzubiel’s immersion of the human figure in the bush, their work explores themes of isolation, fear, and nostalgia, and hints at degradation and dark histories.
With references to art history and Australian cinema, their work plays on gothic sensibilities, tiptoeing between the familiar and the terrifying; innocence and loss, and the idea of the Other. While they differ in painting techniques and palettes, each relies on figurative elements to question our disconnection from the landscape and its consequences.
