Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
Robyn Litchfield uses wild landscape as a template for exploring personal history, notions of cultural identity, alienation and a sense of belonging. Her paintings are imbued with a longing for an idyllic Arcadia but haunted by the resulting violence, dispossession and ecological loss.
