Arthur Streeton is one of Australia's best-known landscape painters and a member of the ‘Heidelberg School’. Born at Mt Duneed, South West Victoria, in 1867, Streeton championed a new pictorial narrative of interpreting Australian Light in the landscape.

150 years on, prominent Australian contemporary artists visit South West Victoria and respond to the same landscape through the prism of light. Awash with colour, light becomes the mechanism by which each artist creates a space for chance encounters, perceptual shifts and illusions.
