Godinymayin Yijard Rivers Arts & Culture Centre (GYRACC) is a stunning new centre with landmark contemporary architecture built to service the people of the Katherine Region in the Northern Territory, Australia.

My work Old Stella Maris was included in the exhibition Botanica that showcased work by a selection of emerging and established artists from Darwin, Alice Springs and the Katherine region. The exhibition presented the work of artists whose imagery focuses on plant forms, native flora and the minutiae of their immediate environment.

Curated by Cath Bowdler it ran from Friday 11 April 2014 to Saturday 10 May 2014

Litchfield Butterfly Retreat presents Generic Metropolis

Litchfield Butterfly Retreat


5 PM Saturday

13th August 2011

After winning a QANTAS Foundation Encouragement of Australian Contemporary Art Award last year and the Togart Contemporary Art Award - Peoples Choice (2010) Anna Reynolds has jokingly been ‘making plans for world domination’ which have transpired into a hectic and monumental year of travel. This has included a 6-week residency and exhibition in Yogyakarta Indonesia, 4 weeks of mindless roaming and random performance art in the UK, and 4 weeks of intensive art-making at a work-lodge in New York City. Bringing it all back home to Batchelor and coinciding with the Darwin Festival is an exhibition of small-unframed paintings/collages. Titled Generic Metropolis, the new work engages intuitive perception surrounding issues of a generic globalisation and the demise and rise of the modern world. It draws on the environmental issues and metaphors found in her previous work, Awesome Atrocities (2010), amidst the Mangrove and Metropolis (2009) Darwin Bold New Future (2009) and A big city up there (2008) while including the influence of international travel and adventure.

Away 2011,  giclee print on photorag,  1mt x1mt,  edition of 10

away from my tree and shack

from the beach and the mangrove

far from the wilderness and sanctuary

I swear to you

I will never make any boring art


When we bought our home in Batchelor it was the tree, a large Ficus Benjamina that sealed the proverbial deal. Gracefully shading 60% of the residence, I loved the building but the tree: I loved more. Thick cords of trunk woven into each other like veins, it’s girth  was ample to hide in and behind. Reinforced with a neighbor’s declarationthat the tree was full of ancestral sprits and should never be cut or burned, I was sure I’d found my sacred plot. This was the tree I’d been looking for, the tree I wished to live under, a place where I could be creative.


An aerial root had taken lodge in a gutter, It’s finger like tentacles had slowly advanced year after year. It had a stronghold and was compact on the old roof. On top dense leaf matter had collected and had started growing small saplings and worms in abundance. My father, the voice of sensibility, would ring weekly asking  ‘you sorted that tree out yet! Meaning had I had it pruned, removed from the gutter – had I controlled the invasion. I resisted. Sadly the day came when ‘Wally’ the tree doctor came and amputated its limb. No longer were they joined: tree and house.  This year I’ve been traveling the world and missing my tree.

batik,digital print,cardboard media installation,

dimensions variable, Anna Reynolds, Australia

Like the burning smell of hot wax I have been overwhelmed by the rich fabric traditions and culture that I have experienced while in residency at Brahma Tirta Sari Studio, Yogjakarta. The time honoured processes, techniques and production have been intriguing and inspiring. The contemporary world in which I live allows me to discover these processes from the past and emerge them into my own creative practice. Destruction of environment, modern day excesses  juxtaposed with the return to more natural or simple way of living often underpin the way and thoughts in which I create
