An exhibition of sculptural landscapes by Michael Winters.

Since the Apollo missions to the moon in the Sixties, I have pondered, as an artist, how I could combine both the earth bound landscape and the elements of time and space into the one work. This was a challenge and the idea to create “Sculptural Landscapes” gave me the means to combine the elements of the earth bound landscape and time and space.

The works are very three dimensional and the landscape is very clearly defined, however, it is cut open and punctured revealing layers underneath. These layers are to be read as cosmic space penetrating the landscape and enveloping it.

Michael Winters is an award-winning artist, based in Canberra. He has extensively exhibited since the mid 1960s in both Australia and internationally, including a major solo exhibition at the Australian War Memorial, and been hung in Wynne and Archibald Prizes. Michael has also had a long career as a teacher of painting and printmaking.

Visual documentation of the exhibition is available from the Dissected by Time and Space exhibition board on Pinterest.

The exhibition runs from Friday 15 August to Sunday 7 September 2014.
