Loene Furler and Winnie Pelz are two South Australian artists who understand the power of place that shapes the response to the landscape. It is deeply felt in their paintings of the Flinders and the Gawler Ranges. It is present in the skies and rolling hills of the Fleurieu Peninsula, the flatlands of the Angas Plains and the Irish Burren.

The land is sensual: the smell of summer rain, the wind whipping through your hair, the sun searing the parched earth and the rich earthy smell of tilled loam.

The land can be seen as the body as it undergoes change: in the ribs of vineyards spread over the undulating torso of the terrain, in the rocky outcrops breaking the surface of the soil and the stone worn smooth as a breast by the movement of water. This exhibition marks more than a decade of personal encounter with an ancient land and its landmarks, by two artists who translate that encounter into works that resonate with a depth of emotion, colour and texture.
