—Opening 17 March, Thursday 6-8pm—
Multi-award-winning artist Barbara Goldin reminisces on the connection between place and memory in her latest exhibition Recollections [click here for more works]. In these works, the splendour of place is impressed onto our minds, nostalgia substitutes far-reaching memory, blurring reality and imagination while retaining the delicate emotions we associate with place. Goldin masterfully reflects her experience as she marks colour and shape, capturing the dark branches of trees, the vivid yellow of sunlight, seizing the thrum and movement of life in some of the most deserted and distinctive landscapes in Australia by loosening details to abstraction within the striking strokes of her brush.
“The paintings in this exhibition have their genesis in the memory and feelings of places I have visited in my past travels. This body of work was developed using sketches and photographs. I am fortunate to have a good reservoir of subject matter from many past trips to the Outback including Pilbara, Red Centre, Kimberley as well as Lord Howe Island.” – Barbara Goldin
