'Bush Works' by Marek Herburt

Foyer F

Landscape artist Marek Herburt takes viewers on a journey through Australian nature with his SALA exhibition ‘Bush Works’. Herburt’s vivid acrylic paintings demonstrate a fascination with Australian flora and landscape. In a semi-abstracted, impressionistic style and a vibrant palette, he captures the intense and enduring harshness of the Australian countryside, while at the same time depicting the energy, life and beauty that landscape evokes.

'A Diverse Australia – an illustrative tribute' by Lisa Chapman

L Room Foyer

Illustrator Lisa Chapman pays tribute to the diversity of flora and fauna unique to Australia in her SALA exhibition ‘A Diverse Australia’. Through charming portraits of plant and animal life, Chapman explores the notion that geographic isolation has meant different species only occur naturally in this country – a sanctuary for animals, birds and plant life.
