"A series of artworks from Kati Thanda, Lake Eyre (Australia’s largest lake), 'Landscapes from Above’ invites to the viewer to see the landscape as a rich tapestry of animal-like shapes and painted art forms. Normally a dry, desolate land mass, capped artesian springs form martian-like objects and ancient salt beds change colour from rich blues to soft pinks and stark whites. River deltas stretch for miles into the lake, breathing life into the salt when floods arrive.Crescent-shaped moons, formed by hot desert, appear from nowhere, sometimes in their hundreds.
Never did I think that my first trip to Kati Thanda in 2016 would lead to me spending over 60 incredible hours over this lake. But I couldn’t help but go back time and time again to discover new land forms and revisit what I loved about her.
I hope this exhibition gives you some feeling of appreciation of what I have been lucky to witness." Tom Putt
