Talking ArtZ Episode 20 | October 2020 | Martin Roberts

Blue Mountains visual artist and and creative arts therapist Martin Roberts talks to Wendy Chai and Brad Diedrich about his work practises and how he is dealing with the COVID-19 lockdown while presenting a new exhibition at Braemar Gallery in Springwood.

His new exhibition Landscapes from the Anthropocene is an exhibition that considers the proposed geological age during which human activity has become the dominant influence on the environment, ecosystems and the climate. The collection is textile based, with a variety of fabrics collaged together, painted, stitched and incorporate a variety of mixed media and found objects to create layers of images and textures that contemplate our changing world.

The interview was first played on Blue Mountains Live after ARTHouse on RBMFM and is now available here as a podcast in the Talking Artz series. Talking Arts ids a program of the Blue Mountains Creative Arts Network.
