I’m in the home run straight, in the lead up to my solo exhibition, BALANCE at the CSIRO Discovery Centre Gallery in Canberra, opening next Wednesday 18 July at 5:30 pm. Works that have been contemplated for a while have been revisited and new works are hot off easel. I have been working in the house where the fire cranks and Nim’s comfy on the chair, for my studio is a tad breezy in its rustic ways.
This exhibition, only my third solo affair, is a little different to my last two. This one has a mix of works from a few series over the last couple of years. There’ll be works from my days studying at the Australian National University where I spent time at the CSIRO Australian National Wildlife Collection, some from my time in France at the artist residency at Centre d’Art Marnay Art Centre CAMAC and others from my continuance of works here at home and in my studio. But they all link together through my contemplation of environmental loss and hope. There’s a clear focus on still life experiments in these works where I play with objects, their reflections and shadows.
If it’s up your alley, do come.
