I've been everywhere man
Maddison Kitching’s I’ve been everywhere man is a series of work which looks at the relationship between tourism, tourism merchandise and real places. The exhibition follows on from Kitching’s previous investigations into commercial representations of Australian landscapes and observations of Australian identity.
In this body of work, Kitching focuses on Kyneton as a tourist destination and the relationship between the tourist and the town. The paintings use visual elements from tourism media and combine them with aspects of colonial architecture and glimpses of imagined local landscapes. The exhibition interrogates popular representations of place and how we connect to and consume landscape.
