The artists who participated in the Summer Cool workshop brought a considerable skill base and quality of aesthetic decisions to bear in the presence of the natural environment of Haneena Hill.
Necessarily these encounters are improvisations as the sites are complex interactive ecologies. we arrive at a forest textured with stringy bark, the geometry of cypress and scribbled lines of angophra, interlace with large fallen timber glowing surfaces of red and yellow fungus.
A stone ledge or entire granite hillside, a group of ancient lichen covered boulders giving pause to reflect on the formative geological processes in deep time, their volumes misted by acacia and melaleuca foliage.
Each workshop here has a freshness in the encounter between the complex natural landscape and the artist whose own complexities are encouraged into the spaces between two natures.
The outdoor art making and interior living, meals and conversation combine for a successful weekend.
