Artist-at-Sea Lea Kannar-Lichtenberger Displays Work at The Barn Gallery

Patterns of the Falkor II, 2022 Medium: acrylic on Canson paper Size: 76 x 56 cm.

2021 Artist-at-Sea Lea Kannar-Lichtenberger held a new exhibit in August and September based on her reflections from the Seafloor to Seabirds in the Coral Sea expedition.

Aquatic Vertical: Examining the Opposition of Time in Undersea Landscapes was exhibited at The Barn Gallery in Victoria, Australia and examines the underwater landscape, the technology that exposes it, and our human impact on this hidden environment. Through various mediums, Kannar-Lichtenberger surveys her 2021 mapping journey, incorporating computer code collected from the sonar into a recognizable image to expose a visual narrative of the landscape below the sea. The central images in this exhibition use sonar code to reformat unseeable topography shown through technology. Lea hopes to examine what role humans will have in preserving land below the waves.

Through varied image narratives, including drawings by hand and mechanical, painting, print media, video, sound, and photography, Kannar-Lichtenberger’s time as the Artist-at-Sea interprets these unseen and unknown underwater landscapes.
