Tamara Dean, In our nature, 2018. “This work is not officially part of the series, but was a gift by Tamara after I worked with her on the series for the 2018 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art. Tamara created this series in the Adelaide Botanic Gardens – following the seasons to draw parallels between human ageing and the cycles of life. Dean is represented by Martin Browne Contemporary, Sydney.
