Yesterday I had been in all day doing stuff, it looked like rain but it never came so late afternoon I headed out to Fremantle Art Centre which is about a 15 minute walk from my house.
I went there to find an exhibition which I didn’t find but I did find some Photographs which were right up my street.
Well I couldn’t believe it, these were photos of what I see in landscapes or just in a small spec of nature but with such bold clarity, where the layers of colours change and become another colour that I find very hard to capture with a camera myself, they actually almost look like paintings but you can see no lines where the colours blend, I like natural gradients of colour.
To achieve these shots Murray visited Lake Eyre, a dry salt pan in the Australian Outback 16 times over 7 years. He camped out alone for up to 5 weeks at a time, photographing the landscape and in all photos the only constant reference point is the horizon.
Simple and beautiful.
I would love to create something in knitting where the sheer beauty of nature is shown this vividly.
