'In the Top Paddock' Touring South Australia, Country Arts SA

'In the Top Paddock', Touring South Australia, Country Arts SA 2008-2010

In the Top Paddock comprises two and three dimensional artworks by the established South Australian artist Margaret Worth and the Japanese designer Toyotaki Yamauchi. 

They share a passion for plywood as a metaphor of life. Worth uses the wood grain to re-present structures of sub-surface water, overlaid with imagery of catchment and dispersal. They make reference to land practices - their geographic and cultural imprint. They offer meditations on connectivity - between land, body and plants.

In 2007 the exhibition opened at the Riddoch Art Gallery, Mount Gambier and later toured South Australia over two years. Anne Keast, Country Arts SA wrote "Worth uses the wood grain and overlays imagery of catchment and dispersal that has been described as ‘bold’ and ‘original’."
