Lay of the Land - Kate Hunter

19 September - 21 October 2017

The Jim Traynor Feature Wall

Emerging artist Kate Hunter examines the topography of our diverse Tropical North Queensland landscape through her latest exhibition Lay of the Land. A series of contemporary jewellery installations create an aerial view over our landscape with over 19 individual jewellery pieces highlighting the unique detail of our tropical landscape. The marks physically embedded in the landscape both man made and natural, enable us to navigate the topographic geometry present. Each pattern and texture evidences our impact on the landscape and the ever changing Lay of the Land

Shapes & lines carved into the landscape,both human & natural.
Cliffs rise up reminiscent of cloud shapes,
Decorating the trees with white ribbons fluttering on edge.
Water courses scribble thru the straight survey lines of mapped acreage.
Towns are reflective huddles of dots,
Clustering together in safety.
