The Edge of Town
In keeping with his practice of making paintings and drawings in the landscape, Mark Dober has made work specifically for this show at the edge of Castlemaine and its surrounds.

Subjects include houses by country roads or railway tracks, a church nestled among trees at Chewton, a path winding its way along Forest Creek, and Poplars in a pastoral setting. Light and space, the near and the far, the bucolic and the strange, make their appearance in ways which convey contrasting and ambiguous moods.

Above all, Mark's work conveys a direct and lively response to landscape, one grounded in observation.
