Tony Windberg. A Painter in the Woods

In the midst of a vast Eucalyptus forest that lies deep in the heart of the great southern region of Western Australia, sits a cottage filled with test tubes, material samples, drafts, notes, indexed color samples and canvasses reflecting their surroundings: the trees.
Simply calling Tony Windberg a Landscape Artist falls short of the true essence of his work. Charcoals of burnt trees, the bark and resin of various Eucalyptus trees and the soil in which they grow and die are all transformed into materials for his works of art in long, well documented procesess of experimentation.
In addition to natural materials, Windberg utilises vinyl flooring, its varnish mimicking wood, onto which he applies a unique method of engraving complex patterns of lines to represent the impact of the timber industry on old growth forrests and the trail left behind by logging.

Director: Thomas Schumacher

Before I met Tony Windberg for the first time years ago I was immersed in the beauty and grace of the Southern West Australian Eucalyptus forests and I kept visiting this area and Tony's art on all my trips to Down Under ever since. With "Painter in the Woods" I tried to capture Tony's lovely kindness and the stunning beauty and cleverness of his art alongside the majestic nature, in which and out of its materials the artist creates his art.
