Jane Skeer is constantly drawn to regional Australia, and to materials that wear the landscape embedded within their surface. Creating work that emerges out of an emotive response to her lived experience of landscape, this exhibition shows work developed from the artist’s travels in regional Australia and her artist residency on Kangaroo Island in June 2020.
