Max Darby: The Grampians in Fire

These paintings were made by Max Darby in 2013


This exhibition of paintings accompanies the gallery of photographs in the previous exhibition on this website – titled Max Darby: The Grampians in Fog. Both series of works were exhibited at Gallery 69 in Smith St. Collingwood during March 2014. The 2 series of works express the nature of the countryside in and around the well-known mountain range in quite different climatic conditions. These paintings attempt to capture the destructive power of the fierce fires that destroyed much of the countryside at the foot of The Grampians and across the farm lands to the small township of Willaura. 


The Grampians are known for their outstanding natural beauty and for being being one of the richest indigenous rock art sites in south-eastern Australia.
