At the still point

fortyfivedownstairs gallery 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

At the Still Point is an exhibition of paintings and drawings by Michele Burder exploring travel through urbanised nature. It depicts nature alongside roads as seen through bus or car windows, as well as moments when captured on walks through public parks and local reserves. They represent samples of time, fleeting scenes which reflect on the transience of nature - these landscapes even though they are ordinary they presage threats from development, overuse and pollution.
