Standing still the trees, an exhibition of works on paper by Carol Archer, is a timely meditation on our relationship with the trees we so often take for granted.

Archer’s drawings and prints celebrate the sense of immersion and wonder one feels when standing with trees. Meanderings near the artist’s home in the Myall Lakes region of N.S.W. and further afield have moved the artist to make these pictures. A preoccupation with light suggests the ephemerality of human perception. The viewpoint, towards ground rather than sky, underlines trees’ resilience and rootedness in ancient earth and rock. 

Carol Archer has been exhibiting her work widely since the early nineties. She returned to Australia in 2016, having spent much of her adult life in Hong Kong, Macao, and Japan. Archer’s work has long been focused on the experience of place, but her current preocupation with trees began with a Bundanon-inspired body of work entitled _Time with the Sky _which was exhibited at Hong Kong’s Cattle Depot Artist Village in 2010. In the ensuing decade, Archer’s work has been shown elsewhere in Hong Kong, and in Macao, Portugal, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Spain, China, and Australia. Archer’s work has been collected by Artbank, the Bundanon Trust and the Hong Kong Trade Office in Geneva, and is held in numerous private collections worldwide.
