Nigel Hewitt Gives Ash New Life in Landscapes

Tuesday 1st May / presented by Caitlin Nienaber

Nigel Hewitt is an award winning visual artist who isn't adverse to using unconventional mediums in his art.

His latest Exhibition, Recinder, showcases this through his use of ash collected from bush fires in both Perth and Tasmania to create detailed landscapes with a photo-realistic quality.

He caught up with Caitlin on breakfast to talk about the processes he uses and where the inspiration for the works stemmed from.

Recinder runs from 30/4 to 19/5 at Gallery Central Northbridge.
