Holding True Ground
“In these times when geography becomes virtual
and developers urbanize the earth,
May the farmer continue to hold true ground
keeping the intimate knowing of the clay alive”
John O Donoghue ‘For the Farmer
A sumptuous solo exhibition of drawings, found objects, documentary and immersive installations. Working with local growers, the artist cultivates deep-rooted connections between art and farming. Ideas and seeds are germinated, fertilized, pruned and nurtured before harvesting. Fingleton revels in the random, dynamic intersection between humans and nature and is unafraid to challenge perceived natural orders.
