Merging community, continents and color palettes Imagine The Lands Pigment Paste Up Project traversed the streets of regional Mullumbimby, Australia and the cityscapes of Rome, Italy. Collaborating with 20 local creatives from the Northern Rivers at a Northern Rivers Pigment Workshops participants learnt to make pigment paints and eco inks from local soils with mediums and binders.

 

Connecting with local soils in a creative exploration of the landscape, the project explored the geomorphology of the Northern Rivers and how the landscape was created. Guest landscape architect James Nash presented a multi-modal presentation to the creatives on the regions terrain over millennia.

 

The group produced a body of work from their made made local colour palettes and installed the works in an Eco Street Art work in Mullumbimby's Old Bakery Lane.

The artworks were then reproduced alongside a series of pigment paste ups produced in Auckland, New Zealand with collaborate Ekarasa Doblanovic. The duo then installed the artworks in the street art district of Rome as a side project of Imagine the Lands Tocca la Terra exhibition in Rome at the Museum of Contemporary Art.
