ENQUIRE

Aaron Kinnane’s new atmospheric landscapes continue the artist’s effervescent vision of the natural world. This series was informed by recent experiences in the woodlands of Barrington Tops and the seaside town of Murrah – where he stayed at architect Philip Cox’s inspiring residence Thubbul.

Tempestuous, wintry folds of midnight navies, hazy mauves, icy blues and arctic greys construct sublime landscapes that are at once sullen and savage, desolate and wildly alive. Bruised and scarred topographies conjure stormy seas, snowy fields, rugged cliffs and grassy wilderness – revenant visions inhabiting the liminal space between form and formlessness, abstraction and representation.
