Philippe Le Miere’s digitally rendered landscapes were born as free-form sketches, drawn on the computer. They then grew into 3D computer generated models, virtual worlds Le Miere could roam, finding the perspective which would form his work of art.

‘Grass and Distant Hills’ is not a real place – coordinates you can swivel but can’t locate. It may be informed by the surroundings of Mornington Peninsula where the artist grew up, as well as the history of landscape painting, the genre upon which Australian art was established. Early landscape art in Australia was often devoid of people, idealisations of places that evoked a mood, idea or aspiration.

There is indeed a mood to ‘Grass and Distant Hills’. Across a field of silken grass rear hills, the sky fading from a bright blue to white light. The terrain between real and virtual shifts the way dreams do, at once strange and immediate. For collectors of contemporary landscapes and new media art, ‘Grass and Distant Hills’ offers a new perspective.
