The panels below are part of Eva and Manuels joint exhibition 'Facets' shown at the M16 Artspace in Griffith, Canberra in 2020.

Manuel and Eva set out on a journey around Australia with the aim to experience and bring back some impressions of the incredibly diverse landscapes and capture some of the many facets of this magnificent continent. Being connected to nature is important. Being surrounded by beautiful thought-provoking, stimulating pictures that pay tribute to our environment helps us reconnect with nature.

Manuels works appreciate the diversity of Australia by carefully choosing the language and size that best apply to the landscape he is showing. Sometimes they are large at other times bold, full of or drained of colour, ambivalent, shy or loud.

Evas works investigate how landscape is defined by its colour palette and by geometric features. These are created by the life the land carries, by climate and earth movements. The perception of the landscape and reference system we use to understand it is dependent on our cultural background but is also deeply personal. Her works are a play with colour, shape and perspective. Also part of the exhibition were 100 postcards, a series of photos taken by Eva along the journey. They can be found here.
