Lyn Merrington – Cloudy Crawley, Winter 2021
|Infinity samplers are my response to the particular vastness of the Western Australian landscape. I began making them around 1995 after moving here from Sydney and feeling regular painting formats could not capture the scale of the landscape or its ephemeral nature.
I never tire of watching the weather change and have been acutely aware of climate change for a very long time. As humans try to master the landscape, it escapes and shows us how fast it can change. It has recently put us in our place. Here is not a bad place at all, but we must have more than a snapshot appreciation of our world.
My works are always created on site. This particular work is from one of my favourite sites.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it.
