The majority of the works in Salt are 47 x 58 in. however, Fredericks also created grand scale, panoramic scenes 47 x 161 in. These works are horizontal successions of ten to twenty frames assembled in one image, representing the feeling of vast space and emptiness. In 2014, Fredericks returned again to Lake Eyre and captured it by night, this resulted in stunning images of endless star spangled skies, the infinite galaxy and constellations above.
‘These images do not set out to describe the geographical location of the landscape but describe the deeper feeling, the experience of being there. To me that experience is very much about a sense of freedom and release.’ – Murray Fredricks
