LOG: Filter, Frame, Forest by Glenda Orr explores how the filters of science, art and commerce frame forest ecosystems and skew the way we value and interact with them. Orr, through her sculptural installations, fine art prints and drawings, visually disrupts the indexical representation of ‘nature’ with the repeated straight lines of the frame, graph or grid, unmasking our simplified understanding of the natural patterns and processes of the forest ecosystem.

About Redland Art Gallery
Redland Art Gallery was officially opened in 2003 and is dedicated to the memory of Eddie Santaguiliana, a former Mayor of the Shire. The gallery is located in Redland City, east of Brisbane, an area that covers 537 square kilometres consisting of mainland and islands. Redland Art Gallery serves a population of 131,000 in a region of bayside suburbs, hinterland areas and islands scattered throughout Moreton Bay.
Redland Art Gallery’s exhibitions and events feature local, Queensland, nationally and internationally recognised artists.
The exhibition program is showcased in six exhibition spaces over two locations at Cleveland and Capalaba. Gallery programs extend to island and mainland locations. The gallery’s policy is to support and encourage access, diversity and opportunity; to create a deeper sense of identity and place; and to acknowledge the region’s significant Indigenous culture and heritage.
