About Tamara Dean
Tamara Dean, an award-winning Australian artist working in the fields of photography, installation and video, is known for her immersive and thought-provoking work that explores the human relationship with nature through ritual, myth and personal experience. Art and the Garden will explore the connections between Tamara’s creative process and output and the landscapes of her life – from a childhood immersed in the bushland of Sydney’s northern suburbs to her home on the side of a mountain near Berry. Tamara will discuss wilderness, ritual, change, the power of beauty and her deep commitment to telling stories that need to be told.


‘Where can you find spaces that relate to your primal instincts as a human in cities nowadays? ‘I think, inherently, we seek wild places out. Reconnecting with a sense of being human in nature reminds you of the bigger picture.’
