When it started, we were grounded.

Helen Brancatisano, Miriam Cullen and Trish Yates turned lockdown limitations to their advantage by carving out regular plein air visits to their own local bushland. There they found companionship, renewal and the joy of simply noticing. Overwhelmed by larger vistas (as by the bigger picture beyond), they chose to hone in on the small things close by. Some of these small objects – charcoal, twig, ochre, feather – became both drawing material and subject matter. In contrast to their customary printmaking practices, where process and planning are paramount, the spontaneity of their environment encouraged the ‘bush buddies’ to move in new directions; away from replicating what they saw (messy texture, rippling creek, filtered sunlight, massive stone), and towards catching how it made them feel. The shared rhythm and ritual of these weekly visits restored a centring calm.

As we finish, we are grounded.
