Fieldwork is a visually engaging contemporary art book that brings to life artist Jo Bertini's long and intimate involvement with the Australian desert. Her pen and ink drawings, works in pencil, charcoal, as well as hundreds of small gouaches, are a vibrant visual diary of the changing landscape. There is a yearning in Bertini's drawings and gouaches, an ache to connect with what she sees, before it disappears. Rarely do we get so close to the experience of an artist at work. With an introduction by Robyn Davidson, author of the best-selling book Tracks, Fieldwork is an authentic engagement with the desert lands and Bertini as a painter and explorer. 'It is only possible to paint the desert with knowledge. You cannot just dip into the desert and hope to see it. Jo Bertini has been very fortunate in going into the desert repeatedly ...There is an energy in her brush that corresponds with the emotional response to this landscape.' - Andrew Sayers, director, National Portrait Gallery
