Scenic World


With 38 artworks, 2.4km to cover and 5 weekends to see them, Scenic World is the outdoor gallery of the Blue Mountains that will take your breath away.


In its seventh year, Scenic World seems to be at the forefront of art within nature (rather than nature inspired art within gallery setting), at least in New South Wales and artists continue to install their most surprising and poetic art pieces. Their unique vision participate to the transformation of the rain forest, highlighting its beauty and strength.  It's fragility, also.

This outdoor art exhibition is a gentle reminder of the delicate balance that keeps our eco-system healthy. The selected artists show us how to give it much love and respect. 

I much recommand viewing it, the exhibition runs until meet week I believe. Treat yourself with an art and fresh air weekend away!

Born in France, Sofie Dieu’s first encounter with art was through church. With a penchant for ritual and spirituality, the artist is best known for her fragile, sombre, and sometimes violent ink paintings and textile works.

 

Poetic and humanist, her practice draws on her journeys to China and Australia. She explores how identity and memory fluctuate according to their immediate environment. Landscapes, people, secrecy, healing, and the dichotomy between light and darkness are some of her recurring themes.

  

Multi-art prizes and award finalist, her work was included in the Sydney North Art Prize, Waterhouse Natural Science prize and the Contemporary Art Award amongst others. In 2016, she worked on the Camperdown Cemetery installation for Sydney Biennale. In 2017, her work will be shown during Vivid and Mental Health Month in Sydney.
