INTERMITTENCES

In Nurrewin, the wilderness is an untamed, unpredictable place of solitude and searching, a place as dangerous as it is breathtaking. 

In this new series natural elements, pure pigments, oil and wax are combined to create delicate abstract works capturing the essence of our natural bush gardens, which can appear harsh and unforgiving but have this delicate underbelly that can easily be destroyed.

 

“The streams of Nurrewin rarely flow. These are vulnerable, intermittent waters. 

When the burned Land was only charcoal and ash, the rain came and the streams started flowing again, heralding regeneration. This is the starting point of Intermittences a new series of large abstract paintings. 

The unpredictability of life also inspired the work : the perpetual interruptions and pauses, the time signposted which no longer exists, and makes loops, convolutions, arabesques. 

By transcribing the vibration of the times in painting, the artist expresses her dreams of what is to come… the resounding return of Life.”
