— Eyre Aerial —
Exhibition held at Woolloogabba Art Gallery , 2018
by Wim de Vos
My aim was to create a series of painting of Lake Eyre and surrounds after flyer over and visiting sites there during September 2011. Not long afterwards came the sad news that three dedicated individuals who travelled this cast landscape extensively by helicopter had died due to a helicopter crash, while making a documentary for the ABC. the journalist Paul Lockyer, cameraman John Bean and pilot Gary Ticehurst fave much to the lives of many who live in and love to visit this landscape. I would like to remember them in the works you see here. - Wim de Vos 2018.
