The Castlemaine Art Gallery and Historical Museum has been working together with local artist Bill  Meyer to present a collection of 50 digitally altered prints. For nearly 30 years Meyer has resided for part of the year in the Central Victorian rural location of Tarilta.

 His 100 acre bushland property contrasts vividly with his second home in Israel. It enables him to focus on awareness of human emotion and its interaction with the physical environment. Meyer distinguishes himself in his art by incorporating Jewish values and many works are titled with Hebrew text.
 Throughout Meyer’s long career he has developed a strong practice centred on the use of photography and sound to create an immersive experience for the viewer. Director of the Castlemaine Art Gallery and Historical Museum, Ms Jennifer Kalionis, said: ‘This exhibition will explore Meyer’s use of digital technology to create works that reference an exploration of the landscape as a psychological space.’
 Meyer has exhibited worldwide, including Israel and Belgium, and has created much of his work on site in Europe, Israel and America. His work is held in the collection of the National Gallery of Australia.
The exhibition is open until December 14 and is accompanied by an illustrated catalogue.
