Anna Russell’s entry for the Burnie Print Prize has been acquired by the Gallery.
Anna harvested and distilled natural materials – saltbush and red river gum bark – and stained the paper before printing in relief and intaglio. Bees’ wax was ideal to create the wandering corrugations. The gritty red earth offered striking textures.
The work celebrates the old metal water tanks, corrugated like the sheds and the roads, which are key to all settlement in outback Australia.
The work is on display at the Project Space, and can be viewed from both inside and outside the gallery.
25 May – 7 July 2019 Paper and Place Gosford Regional Gallery
For centuries paper has been used as a medium for keeping record and holding memory. In this exhibition contemporary artists Nathalie Hartog-Gautier and Beverly Smith each use paper to respond to the unique character of significant places.
Nathalie Hartog-Gautier’s work focuses on the concept of the voyage, its transformations, attachments and associations. Her large scale paper installations for this exhibition represent her reflections on the environment and history of Hill End, the Blue Mountains and the Central Coast.
Beverly Smith uses natural dyes from Indigenous trees, earth pigments of ochre, sand, earth and binders on paper to tell visual stories connected to her Aboriginal identity, culture and Country. With rich personal iconography she presents a series of works on paper that explore sites of personal and cultural significance in the Brewarrina area.
