Anita McIntyre :: ancient land / silica lines
The major source for my imagery is the Australian landscape. My approach to the landscape is basically to abstract from the whole what I consider to be the essentials, that my view of the landscape is not specifically a realistic one, but one which supplies the viewer with sufficient visual material to enable them to involve themselves in conceptually 'completing' what they see.
My current work is influenced by regular and extensive travel to remote parts of Australia. Reflections and meditations provide an abstract imagery that evokes a landscape unseen but known, and recalls notions of observation, memory and presence.
