Intimate and Distant Landscapes drew from the work of five Australian artists who used the process of painting as a means of rendering an experience of a particular place they were close to.  Each artist combined intimate and distant perspectives of landscape in their paintings evoking the kind of sensitivities that can only be conveyed through a deeply personal and poetic engagement with a familiar environment.  Their approach was founded upon a deep-rooted impulse - of knowing, placing, and unearthing unique and often subtle relationships within the landscape which unfolded to the viewer through careful examination of the detailed imagery.
