Melbourne photographer and pilot Ric Wallis's stunning series of aerial images from his first exhibition Over Lake Eyre portray painterly and abstract interpretations of the magical world below. At first glance the large pigments prints of Lake Eyre might be interpreted as landscapes from distant planets or abstract paintings, however closer inspection slowly reveals hints that these images are indeed unadulterated views of a unique and real world on our back doorstep. Ric's "Post-Apocalypse" series shows the hauntingly dramatic aftermath of Victoria's Black Saturday bushfires. Devoid of their usual leafy texture, the regenerating forests reveal a stark juxtaposition to our established perception ... indeed almost that of another world.  Each image is available in one of two sizes as limited edition archival pigment prints.
