DAVID FRAZER, ANNIKA ROMEYN, JAZMINA CININAS, BECC ORSZAG & SOPHIA SZILAGYI. 

The natural world is a place of extremes – it can be a landscape of fury, of the unforgiving, of the merciless, or the untameable. Yet it is also an environment that can be harnessed - where crops are sown and gathered, where the weather can be predicted, where its mountains and oceans can be traversed. This exhibition brings together represented artists of FLG and selected guest artists who create works on paper within their practice. Whether they’re from drawing, painting or printmaking backgrounds, these artists produce incredibly beautiful and contemporary collectable artworks.
