Bundanon Artist Residency 2006

A body of drawings produced during a 6 week residency in February & March 2006 at Bundanon, Arthur Boyd's former home in Shoalhaven, New South Wales. Bundanon is now run as a living arts centre, and Nicholas wishes to thank the Bundanon Trust for the unique opportunity to take part in the Artist in Residence program. www.bundanon.com.au

The natural beauty of Shoalhaven’s landscape inspires and informs all of the work, with many rapid drawings made on daily walks around the property of spotted gum trees, bases of trees, bark, bones.

The residency culminated in two large scale drawings of the Bundanon landscape, executed in the studio with charcoal. made from sticks, bark and seed pods collected from the surrounding trees. Date: 2006

Mumified Figure - Drawing by Nicholas Hutcheson

All That Remains Exhibition

Inspired by the mummies of the Attacama desert (Chile) and by the remains of animals and trees in Australia’s arid outback, the works map the passage of time upon these structures. Outsized and striking, the pieces construct interior landscapes from vestiges of skin, bone and bark – simultaneously familiar and surprising. Date: 2003 - 2004

First exhibited at Andrew Baker Art Dealer, Brisbane
