Got a sneak preview of the Natalie Maras Interface exhibition pieces today while filming some pick-up shots for the short motion promo of the exhibition. Interface runs at the Australian National Botanic Garden’s Gallery (at the Visitors Centre) from November 11.
The Interface exhibition will present 40 works, comprising a variety of 2D and 3D works. Visitors will discover shadow boxes filled with miniature sculptural scenes apparently lifted from the earth’s surface. Juxtaposed natural wood and detailed polymer clay work on glass will leave visitors guessing what is real and what is handmade.
Natalie will also present limited edition prints of her detailed drawings that capture highlights from her residency. The stories alone are worth a visit to this exhibition. Some stories are amusing, many are troubling and some remain mysterious.
This promo uses some of the soil crust imagery we filmed for the Crust project – which also features Natalie’s art and ongoing efforts to raise awareness of the crucial role that biological soil crusts play in the environment. Shot on the RED Dragon with Nikon glass. (Actual promo is at the end of this post).
