This heavily abstracted landscape, with its delicate colouration and low contrast (qualities appropriate to the eastern location), is unusual within Don Binney’s oeuvre. It dates to 1962, the same year that the artist turned his attention to the native birds that would quickly become hallmarks of his work.
