Artist and illustrator Kerrie Leishman says that for us, the landscape that is etched into our collective memories – the rolling hills and fields – is under challenge by the march of wind turbines which tower like huge columns, their texture and shape so incongruous with the land, claiming the land as their own.
‘We have to share the land with man made structures whether we like it or not, the traditional pumping windmill, concrete silos, transmission lines, and the structures associated with mining and drilling. We have come to accept these objects in the landscape as no doubt future generations will with the wind turbines.’
Kerrie Leishman was born in Creswick, near Ballarat. As well as working as an illustrator for the Sydney Morning Herald, Kerrie has a national reputation for her work as an artist in oils.
