An inspiring exhibition of art by a notable practitioner of en plein air painting. Ramble brings together three images from Mary Tonkin.

Plunge in, Kalorama 2019 is a sensuous response to the memory of swimming while Madre, Kalorama 2008 is the embracing form of a single monumental tree. Ramble, Kalorama 2017-19 is an immersive wall painting that is the culmination of ten years of working around the problem of how to convey the somewhat episodic nature of looking, the manner in which the nature of the spaces experienced unfolds over time. All three images were created en plein air in the bush.

Watch the timelapse video below of the 19 metre long painting be assembled in the Whitehorse Artspace gallery.
