“The concept of ‘the bush’ has become iconic in Australia referencing the sparsely inhabited natural landscape which can be extremely beautiful but harsh at the same time rendering itself to drought, heat and fire.
“A ‘bushranger’ was usually an escaped convict in the early years of British settlement who would become a thief and live in the Australian bush to hide from authorities.
“In Bushranger IX, I metaphorically capture the image of a bushranger in action while also reflecting the harsh conditions and unseen energy, movement, life force and emotion of the outback in the palette including the sun and the fires.” ~ Lara Scolari
