Title

Location detail II Gymea Lily


Artist

Tony Ameneiro

Australia

1959 -


About

Tony Ameneiro's recent work explores "personal symbols of place … creating an 'autobiographical map' " ('Imprint', Spring, 2002, p. 14). In his work, images take on a cartographic role in this 'autobiographical map', many of them implying a personal, spiritual or religious meaning for the artist. In 'Location – detail – gymea lily II', the linearity of the etching makes references to the tight contour lines of topographic maps of the region, the map drawn into the contours of the flower.

This etching, from the series 'Location', depicts the Gymea Lily which grows prolifically in the southern Sydney and Illawarra regions, where the artist lived for a number of years (at Stanwell Tops on the Illawarra Escarpment).
