In the Top Paddock comprises 2 and 3 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. Strength is derived by crossing fibres/experience in layers.
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 forms, land practices and animal systems - their geographic and cultural imprint. They offer meditations on connectivity in systems of land, animal and plants – all life forms.
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’."
