'Heat - A Sunburnt Country' Max Watters Collection

The fierce, crushing heat and humidity of our sunburnt country near obliterates the landscape. Heat is evocative of the Australian Summer, propelling us into an all to familiar environment. We can sense the brittle, dry grass felt under foot in Maeve Wood’s Dirt, Feathers and Grass Seeds - Bush Abstract 4; the intense heat radiating from Peter Freeman’s Trees and Viola Bromley’s Along the Rouchel.

Selected from the Max Watters Collection, together the works urge us to experience, to confront Heat.
