Blue Mountains Artists’ Network: The Elements – Earth, Water, Air, Fire
Ancient cultures refined the complexity of all matter into four elements - earth, water, air and fire. Each physical element related to philosophical, mythological and cosmological concepts. Aboriginal culture recognises the infinity of relationships between all of the elements, and their shaping of human activities, cultures and beliefs.
In the immensity of the Blue Mountains natural environment, the elements of earth, water, air and fire surround. In the daily experience, people live with the grand scale of canyons and etched peaks, changing atmospherics over endless forests, spectacular cascades and reflective pools, torrents of rain and gentle mist, always anticipating the destruction and renewal created by fire.
BMAN represents approximately 100 established and emerging artists within the Blue Mountains region. In this exhibition, the selected artists work across a range of genres, including painting, photography, ceramics and mosaics.
