—Opening Reception: 6-8pm, 14 March—-
Barbara Goldin takes inspiration from her experiences in the vast and varied Australian landscape in her new exhibition Out and Back. Based on the artist’s recent visits to the Pilbara, Karijini National Park and the Kimberley, the series reflects the subjective memories contained within place. Goldin captures the essence of her subject matter within the canvas, remaining faithful to its true nature whilst drawing forth the specificity of her own understandings through abstraction. Her quality of light and tone, as well as the powerful gestures of her brushwork, are a testament to the landscape’s immensity and beauty.
“I often use ink, charcoal from the camp-fire, and natural pigments such as ochre that I collect from the earth on site. This way, I am able to express and adapt the stories that become apparent to me. My work is a response to the quality of light, the vibrant colours and textures of the land” – Barbara Goldin
The exhibition will be opened by Dr Ruth Safier, psychiatrist and psychoanalyst.
