Stanley Street Gallery presents work by nationally and internationally recognised artist Julie Blyfield.
In this exquisite exhibition vessels and jewellery take the structures of the natural world as inspiration. Here, she brings her practice together in a concerted tribute to the glory of the desert country in Western Australia.
In a way, Blyfield’s Embrace defies the ephemeral nature of these landscapes through the collecting, study and referencing of samples from each site. The organic textures, colours and formations are then transformed by the use of new more permanent materials. The works created speak to the uniqueness and wonder of these ecosystems.
Exhibition opens: 2–8pm Thursday 19 March 2020
