On the Curved Wall

Bury me in the Brigalow
Kieth Murray

14 May – 2 July 2022 

Kieth Murray was born and raised on the Western Downs and has maintained an abiding attachment to the land of his childhood. His photographic exhibition is a celebration of life in the Western Downs region. Connection to the land is captured through image, sound, and original poetry.  

 The materiality of the exhibition is a meeting of art and science.  Photographs are printed on handmade paper using dyes and materials extracted from local crops and native botanicals. The frames are handcrafted from fallen local timber including the dominant species Brigalow, recycled, and worked by Murray. The exhibition prompts reflection on ‘Country’ and the people, places and cultures that shape our lives.
