The EARTH Art Exhibition explores the CCC artists experience and engagement with their surroundings. The landscape we live in, here in the central west of NSW informs every day, through each phase of the moon, each turning of the earth. They have what is rare in Australia, here in Orange they have the four seasons. Seasons changing and challenging, like the fires of 2019, the ecological crisis of the earth and the worldwide economic crisis of covid, this environment is experienced and imagined by our artists and expressed in their art.
In paintings inspired by landscape, colour and texture, photographs that capture a moment of time, digital art combining landscape and imagination, weavings using local or found materials, pottery created in the textures of the landscape, glassworks glistening with the colours of the seasons.
They are a group based in country Australia, yet connected to everyone here on earth, technology does that. Strangely Covid has brought everyone on earth a little closer together. Because right now we are all going through the same thing: covid, climate change, economic crisis and a sense of ecological crisis, all of our own making.
CCC love living in Orange, the drenching colours of autumn, the gentleness of Spring after winter’s monochromatic beauty and as a bonus we get a free trip around the Sun, every year.
