Edges of Australia :Power in Victoria, Loy Yang
I have spent the last couple of weeks in Victoria working with Opendrawer in Melbourne and Fibre Arts Australia The population of the area is powered by power stations in the Gippsland near Tralorgan where I stayed. These have a strange beauty of their own.
I had a brief visit and found this compelling image appeared in a small sample for demonstration. I am keeping a selection of these small pieces as a recording of my visit around the 'Edges of Australia ' In Melbourne I was able to visit one of my favourite Australian artist John Wolesely in his exhibition Heartlands and Headwaters at the National Gallery. His Heron at Loy Yang reflects his love of the land and its complexity. National Gallery of Victoria
