Dick Turner: Cross Sections, Layering Land and Culture
Published by Castlemaine Art Museum August 2008.
Dick Turner views 'layering' as a juxtaposing of ideas. He uses fragments of the natural and the cultural which are contained within the landscape of Cairn Curran, in Central Victoria. Cairn Curran is a 1950's water catchment area with environmental problems which he has used as an analogy of the present global situation. The visual exploration of this area intends to encapsulate the colonial enterprise and its outcomes in our post modern world.
