The subjects of mythology have long provided artists with a rich source of inspiration for depiction and reinvention. For Myth Making, artists Kate Rohde and Troy Emery have sought inspiration directly from the land and ecology of the Wimmera and Grampians regions of Victoria. Returning to their studios they embarked on a journey of collaboration to create a new mythology of Western Victoria influenced by the traditions of European myth making and imbued with their own recognisable, whimsical, and at times dark, artistic practices.
