Wendy Teakel - ACT
Wendy’s work explores contemporary landscape through an embrace of Edward Relph’s ideas of existential insideness where one is at home within their surrounds without a sense of self-consciousness. She mainly spends time between two iconic Australian landscapes, the farmed landscapes around her in rural New South Wales and those tougher places of Outback Australia. She is interested in human and animal interventions in landscapes and is motivated by the patterns of use (and abuse) of the land.
Wendy has received Project Grants from the ACT Arts Fund and has continued to exhibit consistently over her career spanning almost four decades, both nationally and internationally.
