Kathy Temin was featured in QAGOMA's exhibition Contemporary Australia: Optimism. Temin's work My monument: White forest, 2008, includes heavily stylised cartoon-like trees sitting white against a sky-blue background, referencing Wedgwood reliefs and architectural friezes. The work conjures a place that is simultaneously present and absent, real and imagined.

Exhibition Dates: 14 November 2008 – 22 February 2009
