Encounter: Two Artists, One Journey

Encounter: Two Artists, One Journey is a joint exhibition by artists Debbie Mackinnon and Mike Staniford. In the far reaches of the Tasmanian wilderness, Debbie and Mike unearthed nature’s most awe-inspiring secrets. Here, amidst glorious colour palettes, spectacular skies, and the freshest air in Australia, they immersed themselves in the untamed beauty of these remote landscapes, each interpreting what they saw through their unique artistic lenses. Debbie and Mike are not only life partners but creative collaborators, travelling and working side-by-side. Their conversations with each other and with the landscape led to a multitude of studies and drawings made en plein air. Back in their Sydney studios, they utilised these field notes to create larger works on canvas, panel and paper. Their distinctive bodies of work reveal two very different interpretations of the same journey through Tasmania, epitomising the immortal words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, “the landscape belongs to the person who looks at it”.

The exhibition runs from 10-24 November at Becker Minty Hobart, with a selection of works also on show in our Sydney store.
