Contemporary collection 2009
Anish Kapoor Void field 1989, Mervyn Horton Bequest Fund 1990
Landscape, nature and place remain focuses in contemporary art.
This selection of works from the collection considers the tradition of landscape painting, explores how our concept of nature has changed after the digital revolution and uses natural materials to craft allegories of place.
Highlights include Ian Burn’s conceptual re-workings of found landscape paintings, Anish Kapoor’s stone sculpture Void field 1989, which explores a metaphysics of form and space, and Imants Tillers’ large painting Counting: one, two, three 1988, which quotes colonial artist Eugene von Guérard.
