Deep Surface explores the fragility and impermanence of the natural landscape of lutruwita/Tasmania. Through study of local material elements sourced from significant sites around the island, the artist experiments with formulating natural pigments and colour. This process-based experimentation is translated onto raw fabrics that endure processes of staining, weathering and bleaching in the sun to form an ambiguous sense of place. The works are constructed as assemblages of materials; raw elements of the earth reacting and complimenting with one another, exposing the artist’s intimate encounter with nature.

India will hold a walkthrough of her solo exhibition Deep Surface at 10.30am, Saturday 25 February. India will speak on her painting process, relations to the environment and how her practice has been transformed through a new material focus.

Artist bio

India Kenning works with a sensitivity to materials through painting, drawing and sculptural assemblage. She embraces a hand-made process using fabric, raw pigment and natural elements to construct narratives of place. Her process-based work involves staining, weathering and layering materials to evoke decay and regeneration she witnesses in her surrounding environment.
