Roger Callen


2-30 May 2019

Roger Callen's exhibition, Intersections  (2019) encompasses landscapes and cityscapes but with an interest in spaces reclaimed by nature. Consequently, Roger creates thought-provoking images using watercolour, gouache and at times collaged elements.

Our constructed world-view, the consumer techno-culture in which we live, intersects the given world of a universe that has no cognisance of humankind. Most of these works are about that intersection, the interplay of human effort and nature. On this beautiful and unique planet, Blue Earth, nature once ruled. Now we make and change it in our own image and construct our meanings, forgetting our fragility and debt to nature. In doing so we have jeopardised our own future and have an urgent need to redress it, to celebrate the mystery of being and the rise of form. The works are mostly water-based media landscapes on the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane some with incorporated found objects, others with abstract elements.
