An exhibition of watercolours, created from 2019 to 2023, portraying a journey through nature’s generative force, contemplation on drought, fire, and the COVID-19 pandemic, and ultimately, a return to growth and attraction. The artist’s small farm near the Shoalhaven River served as both a backdrop and inspiration during lockdown, allowing her to use her brush to gradually create meditative accumulations of marks that reflect the interplay of the human body, the natural world, and the passage of time, culminating in a narrative that captures shared experiences.
Since 2014, I have been living in the landscape, skies and water of the high catchment of the Shoalhaven River. This is my home and my inspiration. My experience of the space, light and rhythms of the natural world enable my abstract paintings. The hybrid forms are drawn from the lived body and the natural world; my interior emotional life and my sense of physicality. These projects continue my exploration into psychology and address issues around sexuality, gender, motherhood and wellbeing. View works >
