Sharon Field | Dead leaf dreaming: vignettes
July 4 @ 10:00 am - July 19 @ 4:00 pm UTC+10Free
Established artist Sharon Field will open a solo exhibition at Suki & Hugh Gallery in Bungendore on Saturday 4 July 2020.
The exhibition titled Dead Lead Dreaming: vignettes is Sharon’s third with the gallery and showcases small works in watercolour & graphite based on objects found in the Australian bush landscape.
A nature lover, volunteer fire-fighter, and Burra resident, Sharon is at home in the bush. She has a deep fascination for the insects and plant life that inhabit it.
‘The Australian bush holds so many tiny treasures when you poke around the ground litter on your hands and knees. This collection of works provides a momentary insight into some of the stories that are held by the bush that people usually pass over in a sweeping turn of the head.’ – Sharon Field
These vignettes are small, impressionistic scenes that focus on one moment or give a particular insight into the character of plants and insects and their settings in the bush. Some of the human elements can also be considered intrusive and potentially destructive.
