Landscape painter

Nat Anderson’s painting practice is driven by the desire for life long learning. Living a ‘sea affected life’ in the shadow of the ancient You Yangs, the landscape and the ocean around our beautiful town continues to be enough to keep her captivated as an artist and a seeker. Nat is still driven by what Goethe called a ‘delicate empiricism’ that transformative way of encountering the natural world and the sustained effort to understand it’s phenomena through the powers of human perception.

There is a fascination to me in capturing the atmospherics in these landscapes that have both a timelessness but also elements that are in constant flux. It is this tension between change and timelessness that keeps me coming back to the ocean. In this work I have been particularly focused on where the water meets the land – the shoreline or the rock ledge. In a sense the work is both about my very personal meetings with the shorelines I wander along as well as more literally about depicting the activity that happens where ocean meets the land.
