Australia is as beautiful as it is rugged. While some areas may explode in colour and life after seasonal rains, others can be equally inhospitable during droughts. To capture this dichotomy, acrylic artist Phil Ryan teamed with photographer Glen Ryan in Karst Country.
For the project, the two Ryans travelled to locales in and around Kosciuszko National Park in south-eastern NSW, including Wee Jasper, Blue Waterholes and Yarrangobilly, Phil creating vibrant paintings of the areas' plant and wildlife while Glen generated contrasting images of the rugged and overwhelming landscape. The show runs through this weekend at the Belconnen Arts Centre. [Karst Country]
