On a Walk: Nicola Moss and Sue Harris
â€˜On a walkâ€¦â€™ makes a nod to Slow Movements, which celebrate taking time to connect meaningfully with others, with place and with ourselves.
Earth shaping in the form of gardening and landscaping can be understood as expressing ideal relationships between man and nature, revealing certain patterns of interaction between the people and their surrounding ecologies.
Bringing together Susan Harris’ experiences and documentation of bush habitat and Nicola Moss’ exploration of Grafton’s town ecology after a residency at Grafton Regional Gallery, this exhibition is a result of multi-faceted art practices that integrate with the artists’ lifestyles through volunteering, observation and ecological research.
On a Walk identifies the overlapping processes through which one can begin to take root in one’s surroundings; through planting, through community, and through walking; in a uniquely pragmatic view of identity forming through one’s Place.
