Amanda Parer: Regarding Place - Art Collector

Amanda Parer, Seek, 2012. Oil on linen, 183 x 122cm. Courtesy: the artist

Regarding Place (Re: place) is an exhibition that explores Australia's colonial history of claiming this harsh land. Throughout Parer’s work is the theme of Australian identity and the artist uses animals; feral, agricultural, native and extinct species, to discuss our past, current, and future relationships with the environment. Horses reflect a historical and metaphoric importance in these works in that they display our stories and histories with the landscape. Some works portray the horse as a noble creature that serves man and is a source of achievement, in others it is portrayed as a curious or lost beast, meandering awkwardly or sweeping across a foreign environment.
