Adaption is an exhibition reflecting on the many values of healthy environments – ones we create for ourselves as communities and those larger forces beyond our control. Together, the work of Queensland artists Miles Allen, Helena Jackson-Lloyd and Nicola Moss, brings a dialogue in response to their contemporary relationship with Australian landscape.

Opening: 6.30pm Friday 7 February
Rachael Lee’s work is a direct response to feelings of connection with the positive experience of nature-based environments and unseen forces that create this attraction. While traveling through particular areas in Redlands, strong positive vibrations are felt by the artist as if – nature is whispering – an invitation to explore the area in closer detail.

Image: Robert MacPherson, Australia b.1937, 1000 FROG POEMS: 1000 BOSS DROVERS (“YELLOW LEAF FALLING”) FOR H.S. (detail, no. 1916) 1996–2014. Graphite, ink and stain on paper. Purchased 2014 with funds from the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art Foundation, Paul and Susan Taylor, and Donald and Christine McDonald / Collection: Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art. © Robert MacPherson.

View a selection from Boss Drovers 1996 –2014 which comprise 2400 individual drawings, all deliberately executed as if by the hand of a ten-year-old. Over a 20-year period, Robert MacPherson made these in the guise of his alter ego, Robert Pene, a grade 4 student at St Joseph’s Convent, Nambour, Queensland. The project is dated 14 February 1947, and each sheet is stained to give it an aged patina.
