Rebecca Dagnall: There is unrest in the forest, there is trouble in the trees

Gallery 3 The Australian bush has long been a site of danger and mystery; there is an uneasiness as to what lingers there. Rebecca Dagnall’s latest series There is unrest in the forest, there is trouble in the trees explores the threshold between the bush and suburbia suggesting that the darkness is encroaching on civilisation rather than the other way around.

The often banal Australian suburban park is transformed into a place of gothic mystery.

Melding heavy metal imagery and fantasy poster art with digitally manipulated landscapes, these seductive, threatening, fantastical and foreboding images reveal a potent suburban cultural iconography.
