Paintings from ‘BURRAGORANG THE LOST VALLEY’ by ROBYN COLLIER
‘Paintings from BURRAGORANG THE LOST VALLEY’ has been a book which has taken the past four years to bring to fruition.
It features a collection of 43 full colour images of paintings done of the BURRAGORANG VALLEY – a picturesque valley close to Sydney. This valley is rich in history but was flooded in the 1950s to make way for the Warragamba Dam and Sydney’s water supply. Robyn has, over the past 40 years had possibly more access to this restricted area than most other people. The story of her relationship with this valley is told at the front of the book, a Foreword by environmental activist and former Greens Leader BOB BROWN with an Introduction by historian JIM SMITH. There are another 27 colour plates towards the back of the book of Robyn’s other paintings.
Robyn Collier is an Australian, award-winning wilderness artist of forty years painting experience and has been visiting Yerranderrie and the Burragorang Valley since 1973.
