John Bursill

ARTIST STATEMENT

John Bursill lives and works at Diamond Creek, Victoria. His recent photographic work has captured the landscape around his home and in other parts of rural Victoria, documenting the devastating effects of the successive drought, fires and floods in that region. Superimposed onto the photographs are Bursill's gestural line drawings, which have appeared in different guises throughout his career. These signature, lyrical marks create a dialogue with the terrain and interact with the artist's shadow, cast across each image. Bursill's work is in many significant public and private collections, including the National Gallery of Australia, the National Gallery of Victoria and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Australia.
