Lizzie Buckmaster creates paper construction from images of native Australian flora and fauna, working with the precision of a curious botanist. She reminds us that we look at nature through various prism - cultural, aesthetic, spiritual, scientific - and it can sustain or deny our sense of belonging to a particular place. For Buckmaster, the proverbial journey into the woods taught her to look at her natural surroundings with fresh vision and with this intimate body of work, she takes us on that journey with her. ~from NG Art Gallery
