Imagine the Land Project

The Environmental and Participatory Art Installation Projects recent works at the MACRO Asilo Contemporary Art

Gallery of Rome



The Salon Group Show showcases the work of 21 emerging and established Australian artists at the Lundberg Gallery, curated by Clive Sheridan,


The Lundberg Gallery is a contemporary industrial-style space that sits within the pristine landscape of South Murwillumbah with uninterrupted views towards the Tweed River and Wollumbin Mountain. The gallery’s architecture and location reflect its inclusive vision: seamlessly melding genres of landscape, figuration, abstract and conceptual art united by its participating artists’ shared interest in contemplative, committed practice.

Compounded Caldera, 2022

Our human experience is composed of compounded responses. The artwork draws parallels between our relationships with each other and our connection to place. Compounded Caldera is a moment in time where bush fires, droughts, floods and an ongoing pandemic have ravaged our community in Northern New South Wales, Australia with little moment to exhale a breath before the next pressing moments of concerns take centre stage. The impacts of climate change have moved from subtle shifts and perturbations towards more obvious and compounding climatic events.

Lismore Regional Offsite Gallery
Hosted by Grafton Regional Gallery


Karma Barnes and Robért Franken

The Relative Terrains exhibition was scheduled for January 2023 at the Lismore Regional Gallery but with the heartbreaking damage to the gallery during the devastating floods earlier this year the Grafton Regional Gallery has snapped up the opportunity to house the show along with a number of other displaced exhibitions.

Relative Terrains maps the dramatic shifts in our environmental cycles and how this informs our internal and external experiences. The work traverses the geological terrain and volcanic landscapes of the Northern Rivers and explores how we, the inhabitants of the land, form and change with the forces of the elements, time and life experiences. The exhibition artworks will include a series of large-scale installations and suspended paintings produced in a range of mediums including local pigments.

Transformation-Through the Pressures of Time

'Transformation - Through the Pressures of Time' examines how we are formed and informed by relationships through the intersections of nature and culture, the endless cycles of life and death, creation and destruction and how we are shaped and changed by our internal and external experiences, elements and impermanence.
