Idris Murphy: Earth Canvas group exhibition travelling now

February 11, 2021

Idris Murphy







The Earth Canvas project invited contemporary artists to work on regenerative farms between the Murray and Murrumbidgee rivers in southern New South Wales. The project aimed to link the artists’ perspective on the land with the farmers’ management of the land. What was revealed was a mutual creativity of approach and deep empathy with the landscape.

This exhibition explores the experiences of both the regenerative farmer and the artist, their respective engagement with the land and their vision for a healthier world.

The artists were asked to create a body of artworks to express their experience of a regenerative farm. It was hoped the experience would encourage land managers and food consumers and agencies to see the landscape in a more empathic way, and thereby help to create a healthier world.
