Wilderness: A Natural Response | Terry Swann
Terry Swann, 2019
The works created over two-years, reflect Swann’s unique perspective of the contrasting landscapes of Western Australia and the Northern Territory’s most remote wilderness, including the Pilbara, East and West

Kimberly and the Tanami Desert. From the abstract angular beauty and chromatic drama of desert landscapes marked by time and an unrelenting dry; to the lush relief of azure hot springs and waterholes, reflecting life’s movement and vitality; Swann captures an immediacy of place expressed in vivid hues.

Swann covered her vastest distances yet to create her latest body of plein art painting and worked in extreme conditions to capture the essence of these remote Australian landscapes. “I have to be there. I have to feel it, and then the painting and movement takes over.” Swann said.

Swann has exhibited extensively for the last 30 years in New South Wales and Queensland. Wilderness: A Natural Response, is her third Melbourne solo exhibition.
