Nicola Moss - City and Nature

City and Nature, will be exhibited at Gallerysmith Project Space in North Melbourne from 24th September, showcasing a new body of hand cut paper works and collage by Nicola Moss.

During recent travels in Japan and while on residency at Grafton Regional Gallery, Moss focused on conceptual ideas of identity in relation to environment. Cities are continually remade, yet city trees often instigate a sense of identity for communities. Some become memorials and landmarks, enriching sense of place; while others provide practical attributes of shade, fresh air and home for diverse creatures.  
City and Nature is a place where, town planning, heritage and personal aesthetic; mixes with maintenance regimes and sense of well-being. Moss says “The body of work in this exhibition responds to my experiences of curated ecology. I visit botanic gardens and walk city streets wherever I travel, documenting trees on high-rise rooftops, bonsai-d pot plants, living walls and wind dispersed opportunists”.

You are invited to join the artist at the official opening of City and Nature on Saturday 26th September, 4-6pm, the exhibition continues to Saturday 3rd October.
