Red chair Talk

March 2nd 2011 – Lloyd Godman talks from from the ‘Symbols of Loss and Recovery’ Exhibition

‘Symbols of Loss and Recovery’ commemorates the artistic and community response to the Nillumbik Bushfires of February 2009. Lloyd Godman will explore specifically his experience creating A Walk in the Fog and Snow, Kinglake in the context of his broader practise as an ecological artist.

“From my previous work in 2005-6 on the regeneration after the fire at Wilsons Prom I realized there would be a remarkable transformation of the desolate charred land as the bush regenerated and I was committed to create work exploring this transformation, but I was unprepared for the beauty of the transformation. There was a tremendous sensation of vaporized energy, as though every atom of life had been consumed. Indeed when I first visited the area I saw no form of life at all, except for a few remarkable grass trees that had already grown a few inches of new green growth.”

First Wednesday of each month at 7pm

Venue: The Barn Gallery, Montsalvat, 7 Hillcrest Ave, Eltham (Melway 22 A8)

Cost: Free entry, cheese and wine provided. RSVP essential.

Contact: Montsalvat on 9439 7712 or email montsalvat@montsalvat.com.au .

Lloyd has 2 images from the Entropy series published in New Scientist as part of

Australia through the lens: The big dry continent


Install at ACP 27 July 2011



May 12, 2011 Lloyd installed "Expanding Dimension" at Camberwell Grammar School to photograph. Despite the cold  and rain Silvi  collaborated with me to get some great images of the living plant work on the balustrade off the Roystead building. Thanks Silvi you're a champ!  Next week the work will be installed in a more permanent manner suspended in the central arch on the second story above the main entrance and will live there for some time. Working with Architect Peter Crone we are looking to install a permanent plant work into the new building for the school and the installation of Expanding Dimension is an experiment to prove how little maintenance these living plant works need.

The photographs were for a coming feature in the August September issue of Facility Management Magazine.

super sustainable art, Lloyd Godman

Art and Environment Beyond Comment!
For decades artists have often made confronting and constructive comment about environment issues, but often they fall victim to the very issues and consumer society they critique. How can they step beyond comment and contribute to solving environmental problems in real terms, how can they make art that is beyond sustainability and moves with the world off the super-sustainable?
