LUMINOUS EARTH

Don’t miss Annika Romeyn’s Luminous Earth which opened at CCAS Manuka last night. Annika visited the Grand Canyon in the USA and appears to have returned to Australia quite affected by her experience.  She waxes lyrical when talking about her time  Canyon, “Rafting, hiking and camping, the mighty Colorado River cut my path between the majestic, seemingly insurmountable, canyon walls that constantly framed my field of vision and, for a time, defined my world. It is a singular feeling to be inside the narrow arm of a canyon network, yet know that the network stretches outward beyond belief. Similarly, it is possible to stare at a wall of rock, excited by its visually dynamic form and structure while overcome by the history of movement scrawled across its surface.” However, Annika has steered well clear of cliched tourist views for an intimate engagement with the textural details of an iconic landscape. Luminous Earth at CCAS Manuka until 17 November.
