Still and Within is a two person exhibition and includes both interiors and still life paintings by Alison Mackay and Nic Mason. The title references the actuality of these works, but also hints at an introspective mindset integral to the painting process – a focused and internalised headspace found in the artist’s studio.
Many of the works in this exhibition reference artist residencies undertaken in recent years.
Alison Mackay painted at the reconstructed home of legendary painter, Margaret Olley, (now part of the Tweed Regional Gallery) and at a remote bush cottage on the Monaro (a Defiance Gallery all-female residency).
Nic Mason painted through the Bundanon Trust, Artist in Residence program..
