Drawing: Atmospheres of a Salient Landscape

David Edgar

Atmospheres of a Salient Landscape transforms the humble and timeless medium of charcoal drawing into an immersive experience.

David Edgar’s exploration describes an intimate relationship with the landscape of North West Tasmania. He strips back the recognition of specific locations to reveal aesthetically charged manifestations of silence and noise; darkness and light; expansion and contraction.

David Edgar’s exhibition will be displayed across two exhibition spaces; The Atrium Gallery will feature smaller works from the series and the Makers’ Space will present David’s large-scale pieces against the epic architecture of Burnie’s Makers’ Workshop.

Curator: Joanna Gair

 

Presented by The University of Tasmania (Cradle Coast)
