Archive > jessica Andersen: CLD Life, The Cultural Landscape of Central Queensland

QLD Life: The Cultural Landscape of Central Queensland gives urban Australians a glimpse of contemporary life in Central Queensland. This exhibition intends to illustrate in a non-confrontational way, some of the pleasant and unpleasant truths experienced by people in the area. The hope for this exhibition is that it may perhaps help others better understand the complexities of life for people in this part of Australia.

As a person from Central Queensland I use my art practice to explore distilled glimpses of the area’s cultural landscape. I aim to display the irony of common cultural practices and social situations in the region. The backdrop within each painting acts as a stage for characters to perform a situation from their everyday lives. Each artwork is based upon a memory of a situation or person from my life. I utilise acrylic painting as it allows me to work quickly. I feel an urgency while producing my art as I am alarmed and upset by the world’s rapidly changing political landscape.
