Somewhere down the line
Somewhere Down the Line is an exhibition of paintings and experimental sculptures by Beth Thornber and Courtney Young. This new body of work explores the many iterations of borders and boundaries in the postcolonial Australian landscape.
Both artists examine the ‘edge effect’ concept, which is often associated with ecological changes at the boundary of two or more habitats. These boundaries are commonly defined by physical barriers such as fences, roads, watercourses, and geological formations, all of which serve to connect. But not all edges, not all lines drawn, are physical; Thornber and Young also observe the divisions imposed by bureaucracy, history, and culture.
Somewhere Down the Line is presented by Wangaratta Art Gallery. An artist talk will take place on Thursday 27 April.
