Summary
Peter Sculthorpe is one of Australia?s greatest contemporary composers, while Garry Shead is one of Australia?s most distinguished visual artists. For many years they have travelled along parallel paths, sharing common interests and finding common sources of inspiration. In their separate ways, they have explored a fascination with the Australian landscape and its cultural identity. They have examined the country?s colonial past and the living heritage of its Aboriginal inhabitants. Furthermore, they have responded in very personal ways to D.H. Lawrence?s novel Kangaroo and have fallen in love with the lyrics of Australia?s most enigmatic poet, Ern Malley. Journeys into Australia marks a most remarkable act of collaboration between the composer and the artist. Working from similar sources of inspiration, but quite independently of one another, Peter Sculthorpe has created amazingly evocative passages of music and Garry Shead has created three series of paintings which have become iconic in Australian visual culture. The collaboration involved the bringing together of music with images and juxtaposing them with some of the original literary sources that inspired them. What is truly astonishing is that when these disparate elements were brought together, they combined seamlessly into a single creative whole
