Lani Shea-An (she/her/they) depicts her own experiences of joy and wonder in nature, particularly in reference to what she has learned through gardening. Her series of new works employs abstract and figurative painting processes, collage, and printmaking to explore the connections and emotions that the plant kingdom evokes.

The outlaw tradition - those who live โ€˜outside the lawโ€™ - has a rich and vivid history. In Australia, such bandits are known as bushrangers, immortalised in popular culture, celebrated through folk tales and elevated to a legendary, even mythical status.

Evolving from a personal exploration of isolation and grief, that surfaced during Kingโ€™s travels of remote Australia; ๐˜ฝ๐™ช๐™จ๐™๐™ง๐™–๐™ฃ๐™œ๐™š๐™ง ๐˜ฝ๐™ก๐™ช๐™š is an inquiry into the perennial themes of loneliness, death, and longing. By tracking the spirit of the outcast ranger through historical regions and remote communities of the outback, the resulting images speak of a yearning for deep connection in the face of isolation.
