(Study Guide) Lucy Culliton's Big Skies
A documentary about an Australian painter working on landscape paintings of the country where she lives. It follows Culliton as she paints the big, drought-tarnished skies, and she talks about her art as we see her working on the paintings both outdoors and in her studio. Culliton is a major Australian artist whose work is immensely popular and sought by both galleries and private collectors, though her work is not as widely known outside NSW, where she lives, works and exhibits.
Lucy Culliton's Big Skies would be an excellent film to show to middle and senior secondary and tertiary students of Art and Studio Arts. It could also be relevant
to Australian Studies.
