Journeys Through Landscape, an exhibition from renowned Australian landscape watercolourist, Terry Swann, opens at fortyfivedownstairs, Melbourne, on Tuesday 17 October, 2017.Swann’s visceral contemporary watercolours capture in vivid abstraction the essence of Australia’s ancient and unspoilt landscapes. The works created over two years chart Swann’s exploration of national parks and remote wilderness areas around the country, including Victoria, which she painted for the first time.From the riot of colour of the Victorian High Country in spring, to the kaleidoscopic wonders of the Caterpillar Dreaming country in the East MacDonnell Ranges, Swann’s interpretations of place are filtered through her senses and emotions, reflecting a deep connection to country.Swann’s plein air paintings reflect the colour, movement, architecture and drama of the Australian landscape. Through her unique perspective she captures its essence with energy and emotion.
