Dianna Wells — Finding Wild

Fireweed 2017

29 March–22 April

Finding Wild is an exhibition of hand printed photographs and lumen prints, engaging landscape, botany and 19th century photography to explore the notion of ‘the new wild’, where introduced plant species grow wild in bushland environments primarily within and surrounding Melbourne. These environments include Brighton’s Dendy Beach Dune and Kilcunda on the Bass Coast. The lumen prints reference the cyanotype plant specimens of 19th century British artist Anna Atkins as a means to record the collection of introduced species within the photographic medium.
