Walcha-based artist Ross Laurie was one of the 13 Australian artists who ventured Fowlers Gap in north western New South Wales in May 2011, for an epic journey into the vast landscape of Australia’s arid desert. The other artists in the cohort were Margaret Ackland, Elisabeth Cummings, Merran Esson, Joe Frost, Alan Jones, Jennifer Keeler-Milne, Steve Lopes, Euan Macleod, Idris Murphy, Amanda Penrose Hart, Peter Sharp and Guy Warren. Each artist responded to the landscape in their unique way and after two weeks working en plein air in the desert, they returned to their studios to develop works for the group show.
