In 2005, Natimuk artist Greg Pritchard installed a large wooden frame outside Natimuk that framed Mt Arapiles as part of the Nati Frinj Festival. Collaborating with Sculptor Dónal Molloy-Drum, Framing The Wimmera is the next iteration of his vision.

Biography

“An artist’s role can be to frame reality in such a way that the observer re-appraises what they previously took for granted. A poet can do it with few words, painters with their use of colour or line. In this work, we have literally used frames to do a similar thing, to make the observer think about what has been framed and why it has been framed.” Greg Pritchard

In 2005, Natimuk artist Greg Pritchard installed a large wooden frame outside Natimuk that framed Mt Arapiles as part of the Nati Frinj Festival. The work subsquently captured peoples’ photographic attention and connected them to this iconic vista of the Wimmera.

Inspired by the success of this installation, Horsham Rural City Council’s Public Art Committee commissioned artist Greg Pritchard and Banyena Sculptor Dónal Molloy-Drum to create four sculptural frames to highlight outstanding views of the municipality.
