This exhibition is on tour…It was shown in Bairnsdale Gallery in February a year, after the Glenaladale fire event.  In April, the exhibition was at Meeniyan Art Gallery.  Laurie Collins Sculpture Garden, is now hosting Libby’s Exhibition at the Red Tree Gallery. Main Road Jindivick.

 

INTENT OF EXHIBITION.

The devastating fires of Feb 11th 2014, swept through our property and the Glenaladale district.

The visual impact of the fires and the dramatic changes to a once familiar landscape, changed for ever.  This exhibition shares and savours the healing process, Human and natural environment.  The collection of bits’ connecting man and environment as the rebuild and regenerative process takes place.  Beauty is seen in a connective spirit, as the monotone returns to colours, uplifting us with hope and transformation.

DESCRIPTION OF WORKS

An intimate collection of artworks, which are mostly smaller sizes.  Some textural paintings, to visually communicate the devastation left by the fires, followed by the return of colours, to the landscape.  The assemblages, created from bits collected during the cleaning up process after the fires, burnt timber and twigs, wire from fencing, melted mower parts etc.  layered together to create unified assemblage artworks.

This year, I have also illustrated a children’s book, which is soon to be released.

As well as participating in group exhibitions, the Gippsland 14.. in Melbourne and currently at Meeniyan Art Gallery.
