Australian Inspiration

Australian Inspiration

Werris Creek Library and Narrabri Library

The unique beauty of Australia’s native flora and fauna has long inspired artists and designers. The earliestnatural history drawings of the waratah were used to document a new species. A century later there was a more decorative interpretation. Illustraions of koala’s by Dorothy Wall, Norman Lindsay and Ida Rentoul Outhwaite reflect a society which had begun to defin its culture identity through native fauna. And sketches, models and contempory artworks of the Sydney opera House show how it evolved from a functional design to become a cultural icon.
