Beauty of Patterns Lost

I love to paint and experiment with techniques . . . . I adore our environment and the life it supports.

This exhibition allows me to combine these two aspects of my life, in a way that I hope will highlight the beauty that is lost . . . . when we are careless with our natural resourses . . . our wonderful assets.

Over the past ten years we have travelled to a small block of land in the Beautiful Esk Shire, over looking the Wivenhoe Lake. Travelling regularly weekly, we have seen the carnage on our roads and the changes to our environment through clearing for houses and stock.
We started off by calling this constant slurry ROAD KILL and then it became ROAD PIZZA, but now we just think of it as WASTE.



Exhibiting at the same time is, Talking Tapa which is supported by Visions of Australia, an Australian government program supporting touring exhibitions.
Pasifika bark Cloth in Queensland showcases the diversity of Pacific Islander cultural practices, heritage and visual iconography through beaten bark cloth and tapa.

Also showing is a delightful selection of student works curated from the Logan Art Gallery workshop program.

If you have time I am sure you will enjoy the opening. . . . and the works on show.

Cheers
Sharon
