Di Cubitt – Kwakoorillup
|My art practice explores a broad range of ideas inspired by the natural world. Currently I am concerned with humankind’s relationship to the landscapes we inhabit and visit. In particular, I am drawn to how the experience of revisiting and walking through the landscape affects our perception of the places we spend time in.
Through a long engagement with a particular riverscape in the west Australian landscape, I have been able to focus my attention on the imaginings and psychological responses that occur while exploring a specific environment.
Kwakoorillup draws on an experience of returning from a walk one evening in the moonlight, the feeling of disquiet that occurs when the known is reshaped and rendered into a strange new environment by the shadows of the night.
