When autumn comes to Australia the light changes. Shadows harden. Details crystallise. And the depth and character of foliage so often flattened by the sun begins to dance in a silver realm. To anyone who thinks we have no seasons, look to our artists or just look up at the sky: pearlescent in a brooding swathe of greys. In winter the landscape has a rare moment of introspection and adopts a mutable quietude. The sky is still blue, but not as brightly so. Rivers frost. Branches pierce pale clouds. And the character of trees and grasses change imperceptibly.
This subtlety is captured Silhouette: The Body of Nature. In a collective grace, the palette in many of these works is paler and the patterns of nature more pronounced. A group show, Silhouette: The Body of Nature brings together artists working across ceramics, painting and prints.
Artists include Marika Varady, Susanna Chen Chow, Phillip Russell, Shannon Garson, Jane Canfield, Luke Wagner, Jo Darvall, Kwirak Choung, Barbara Goldin, Judith Ringger, Suvira McDonald.
