TarraWarra Primavera

TarraWarra Primavera was a playful Antipodean retelling of Botticelli’s Three Graces from his Primavera painting in the Uffizi Gallery. …Located at TarraWarra Museum of Art, and set among the minimal Etruscan colonnade of its courtyard, these sculptures will appear to dance through the space like Maenads or Minoan priestesses, once again referring to the ancient cultural lineage that so inspired Botticelli. … These Three Graces, and the harvest they bear, are the inheritors of the legacy of the jumbuck in Australian art, from Tom Roberts’ traditional merinos to the gritty sheep of Les Kossatz. The jumbucks of TarraWarra Primavera make a new statement. Their wry smirks and manicured demeanours belie any notion of drought or hardship on the land and reflect on a privileged, civilized culture and the pastoral bounty of their station. William Eicholtz

The creation of this work featured in the ABC TV series Artist at Work on ABC TV 1 on Tuesday 13 May at 10pm and on ABC TV 2 on Sunday 18 May at 7pm
