New Landscapes: the Warburton River – Lake Eyre, 2011
September 8, 2011 - September 26, 2011
Catherine Rogers is a Sydney based artist whose photographic practice is based around the landscape – particularly the Australian landscape. This new work shows some preliminary images from a recent trip to Lake Eyre (and beyond) this winter. The larger project includes images and drawings from the Kimberlies, and from over 8,000kms of travel by road, to and from the far north.
These new landscapes include images taken from a boat on the Warburton River, aerial views of the rivers (Warburton, Kallakoopah) flowing into the north-east corner of Lake Eyre and images taken while on foot in the area of Kalamurina Station (an Australian Wildlife Conservancy property, see www.australianwildlife.org) which is located on the north-east corner of Lake Eyre, in the north-east of South Australia. The last two years, 2010-2011, have seen a great deal of rain fall in the Lake Eyre area, as well as across the outback of Australia. As a result the lakes and rivers of South Australia’s dry, flat centre are teeming with birds, wildlife and vegetation. It’s an extraordinary place to be.
All prints are hand-made – that is, each image is worked on from camera to final print and also printed – by Catherine Rogers. Pigment ink on Innova smooth cotton paper, dimensions variable. Limited edition sets available (editions of 5).
