Nikulinsky Unfolded: Xanthorrhoea

Philippa Nikulinsky

Take a walk with internationally renowned artist Philippa Nikulinsky through the Great Victoria Desert. In an artwork painted on a continuous piece of Japanese kozo paper, Nikulinsky depicts the regeneration process of the iconic grass tree (Xanthorrhoea thorntonii). It unfolds through time to show the elegance of unburnt leaves, and in contrast the stark drama of bushfire-wrought sand dunes.
