Restless Nature
March 28 – April 24, 2017

Elizabeth Banfield, Eolo Paul Bottaro, Kerrie Cleverdon, Kyoko Imazu, Adam Nudelman, Bronwyn Rees, John Sheehan, Sophia Szilagyi

Collins Place Gallery
Shop 19 Collins Place, 45 Collins St, Melbourne VIC

This exhibition brings together the work of eight contemporary Australian artists who each explore differing interpretations of the natural world through painting, printmaking, drawing and hand crafted artist books. Artists have long looked to the landscape as a vehicle for creative expression, and each participant in this exhibition uses it as a starting point to create imagery that ranges from finely detailed realism to whimsical and fantastic inventions. From painstakingly detailed prints, to loose expressive drawing and painting, Restless Nature also references the idea of an inherently unsettled state of mind that people are sometimes classed as having – one frequently channelled through creative endeavour.

Join us for drinks with the Artists: Thursday 20th April, 5.30 – 7.30pm
