Forest Home

The story: This work is about the Austrian explorer and naturalist Gustave Weindorfer who arrived in Tasmania, Australia, in 1909 and who was instrumental in declaring and developing Cradle Mountain, and the surrounding Tasmanian wildneress area, a National Park. After his wife tragically died in 1916, he lived the life of a hermit in his wooden house in the bush called Waldheim "home in the forest" where wild animals, including the now extinct Thylacene, would wander in and take shelter by his fireside hearth. In our work, Gustave's Austrian alps are married up with the alpine like Cradle Mountain and his beloved forest animals stand close and loyal. Mixed media assemblage (wood, aluminium, paint, paper, resin, fabric) 670mmW x 590mmH x 120mmD
