Bertini's works have been hailed as x-ray naturalisms that show an embodied knowledge of landscape that show dyad perspectival views of beneath and above simultaneously. The paintings in this exhibition are about frontiers and the ideologies of frontier place and person from a female perspective. They thus offer an alternative vision to the predominately male orientated archived knowledge regarding the Australian desert and exploration.
