Senior visual artist Nigel Hewitt’s latest body of work Recinder is created from ash collected from bush fires across Tasmania. These natural monochromatic tones are layered on to the canvases to create a series of vulnerable and uneasy landscapes.
Collectively, these works speak about more than just a natural environment under threat; they address colonial attitudes which determine our ecological and social relationships. Destruction, rebirth, and forgotten histories are brought into light through Hewitt’s political portrait of contemporary Australia. Recinder is a personal reflection on a history, a land, and an identity contested.
