Exhibition countdown: 5 days to go!
Today ‘s preview from the Australia Wide Six exhibition is In the Gorge 1 by Carolyn Sullivan.
Carolyn lives near Bundanoon, a rural township two hours out of Sydney, on five acres of flat, plateau country surrounded by eucalypt and deciduous trees in a park like site. Its cool climate, many gardens, closeness to the escarpment and beautiful mists, provide lots of inspiration for her work.
Journeys away from home also present opportunities to observe, draw, interpret and incorporate new ideas into her works. A recent 8,000km driving trip to Central Australia has provided a lot of inspiration for new work based on the desert plants and landforms. While walking in the creek bed of Trephina Gorge, Carolyn found these caterpillar chewed leaves. The caterpillar is symbolic to the indigenous people of the Eastern MacDonnell Ranges, NT.
