If there are diverse kinds of knowledge and ways of knowing place, then we need to learn to value the different ways each of us sees a single place that is significant, but differently so, for each perspective.

Philip Wolfhagen: northern Midland landscapes « Previous | |Next »
April 4, 2012

The Academy Gallery at the School of Visual and Performing Arts of the University of Tasmania. They were showing Hits and Memories: ten years at the Academy Gallery exhibition. The exhibition will include a showcase of Academy Gallery archive media, exhibition catalogues and memorabilia associated with the Academy Gallery's history.

The work of Philip Wolfhagen, the landscape artist, is included:

If Wolfhagen is a painter of the Australian landscape, then he is one whose atmospheric work has focused on Tasmania, and on the northern Midlands (around Longford) in particular. He works in the landscape tradition begun in late 1800s with the work of John Glover.

These are pastoral landscapes --not those of wilderness ---as Wolfhagen look at the land from a white settler point of view. They are about place. These are studio- based works, created as memories of particular places and cued through photographs as well as sketchbook notes and often are, as in The Inner Edge (2004), a tonal narrative of the changing light across the land.
