John Wolseley 'Heartlands and Headwaters'


I finally got down to Melbourne for the day on Friday. Just a quick trip so I did not have very long to spend in the city before going out to South Melbourne to the Australian Tapestry Workshop. I had been invited to a students reunion. More about that later.
I have been longing to see the John Wolseley 'Heartlands and Headwaters' exhibition. I did not spend a lot of time there and will definitely return soon for a very leisurely look at the exhibition again.
If you are not familiar with the work or process's used by the artist, I urge you to watch the video.

I few weeks ago I spent some time in the Little Desert. This small detail reminds me of my time there.

This is more of a photo essay rather than a review of the exhibition. There was so much to see. Way too much to take in on such a short visit. Many of the works appeared to me to be over 6 meters long. Details exquisite. There is a catalogue available here,
I plan on reading it and when I have returned, I will write some more,
Until then, enjoy the small sample of photos.
