Bella Vista 2009
Bella vista 2009 John Buckley Gallery
Janenne Eaton’s painting Creek runner – Hume and Barton Highways 2009 represents an unfolding landscape, a journey through the country between Canberra and Melbourne envisioned through the filters of memory and personal experience, and the visual language of maps and road signs. To look at this painting is to read its litany of names, which is both the subject and the formal structure of the work.
