Artist/s statement

In this exhibition, four artists reveal their personal responses to places of different kinds in painting, printmaking and drawing. Their work depicts the lie of the land – whether urban, rural or outback, rock formations and other features that demand our attention as we look out, over or at them.

Catherine’s focus is on remnant habitat in urban areas and the hints of what once was – whether it is a powerful owl at rest or an endangered Neilsen Park she-oak in flower or simply the rhythm and repetition of form, light or colour in the landscape that affects our perception of a place. Margaret’s paintings start with an observation of the landscape and culminate in depictions of the remembered and imagined. Whilst the landscapes that inspire her works are clear, she is interested in creating space for her audience to have their own personal experience of place. Margaret is concerned more with creating calm and reflective connections rather than realism. Using multiplate printmaking, Nicola has abstracted the contours that trace the earth to create new landscapes and textures, and Alexandra's works play on surfaces; following lines, marks and colours visible from a distance such as from the air, from the water or through the bush.

The works represent the responses of these artists, to particular places and spaces and their attempts to capture them either for later reflection or to communicate the sense of that place to others.
