Light and the disappearing line - A solo exhibition of landscape painting

ochre-lawson-light-and-disappearingLight and the disappearing line, the next exhibition at Chrissie Cotter gallery, will feature oil paintings and drawings that are the culmination of over 12 months of travel, says artist Ochre Lawson.

“All the works in the exhibition have been painted 'en plein air' or directly from nature in wilderness places such as Gardens of Stone near Lithgow, the beautiful nature reserves and national parks we are still lucky to retain in Sydney and land up in the Hawkesbury region,” she said.

“[The exhibition represents] many miles of back and forth from Sydney, setting up camp, fighting wind, rain and flies and generally being at one or at odds with nature.”

The expressive and colourful works are a “physical response” to nature and the spiritual.

“I am interested in the initial drawing marks being part of the finished painting, using non-literal colour but colours that are inspired by maybe a single element in the bush, shapes, textures and the underlying essence of the land as I feel it,” Ochre said.
