Island to Inland

Contemporary art from Kangaroo Island

The isolation, beauty, ferocity and joy of life on Kangaroo Island has inspired new work by ten contemporary artists in Island to Inland. Each artist tackles themes central to the Island’s diversity and the shared experiences of isolation. Encouraged and challenged by their surroundings, these works reflect broader issues relating to settlement, sustainability, loss and fortitude. Through a range of media, the artists explore new directions in their work and, in the process, convey the raw beauty and delicate balance of their Island home.

Ria Byass, Quentin Chester, Audrey Harnett, Scott Hartshorne, Indiana James, Janine Mackintosh, Deborah Sleeman, Caroline Taylor, Maggie Welz and Kenita Williamson.
