—Opening Reception: 6-8pm, 26 July—
In Timeless, Claire Tozer muses on the enduring nature of the Australian wilderness through her total immersion in the outback and coastal landscapes. The intense climates, exquisite movements and sounds provide the dramatic colours and strong lines which dominate the canvas of her works. What is particularly poignant is Tozer’s passion for drawing in pigment ink pen and it is through them that she creates symbolic marks, retracing her experience of the timeless landscape layer by layer.
“Staring out over the Australian Desert is an awe-inspiring experience; reflecting the past and present at its every moment… it is Timeless. My work is drawn when I am in my studio at home. I study my photographs and work step by step to create the form. Gradually I build up a weaving of lines with my ink pens to create the more symbolic picture of all that I experience” – Claire Tozer
The exhibition will be opened by multi-award winning artist and Archibald Prize Finalist, Ann Cape.
