Ashleigh Garwood – Of Other Spaces, 2015

Brenda May Gallery

May 5, 2015 - June 6, 2015


‘Of Other Spaces’ are allegorical images that exist to question the influence and power that landscape imagery holds in neutralizing societal frameworks and cultural understanding.

The majority of early painted landscape imagery that is presented at Australian national art institutions is of a rugged, but peaceful and unified environment. There seems to be a hidden ideological agenda that informs the portrayal of the landscape, which in turn promotes that ideology. My project, ‘Of Other Spaces’, is a way of examining the process by which this is achieved, by which our collective memory is affected.
