Orange Cowra Cabonne Science Hub presents PLANT X – a series of presentations + tutorials a collaboration between artists and scientists with acclaimed Sydney based artist Angus Fisher.
This workshop explores how you can draw botanical and scientific illustrations.
Angus will be featured as part of the Orange Cowra Cabonne Science Hub, an online tutorial for National Science Week the presentation will begin with a short instructional video.
Angus Fisher’s art practice investigates nature and humankind’s relationship with the natural world. For Fisher, the idea of nature is not a static term, but an evolving concept. Through the detailed study of natural subject matter and natural history, his work grapples with the idea of how nature exists and has existed, in the huma imagination. Fisher does not only investigate ecology through his subjects but the evolving attitudes and changing philosophical interpretations of the wider natural world. Primarily working with etching and drawing, he utilises traditional working techniques, methodologies, and aesthetics to place his work in direct connection to historical contexts and traditions.
Angus has a Masters of Fine Arts degree from the National Art School and has had exhibits with the Australian Galleries since 2012.
