Louise Tate: Looking at Trees

August 11, 2020 - August 29, 2020

Louise Tate, This heart is sticky like honey, 2020. Oil on linen, 42 x 31.5cm framed. Courtesy: the artist and Sophie Gannon Gallery, Melbourne.

Louise Tate writes “Gardening, walking in the park, gazing at flora through the apartment window; during a global pandemic all of these things have become so much more than just simple admiration of natural beauty. Engaging with nature has become political – it is a way to actively resist the ‘attention economy’ and escape from the endless cycle of bad news.

Garden utopias, real and imagined, appear in this body of work as richly textured and vibrantly colourful. These are hopeful paintings that are full of light. They yearn for a world that shifts beyond old ways of thinking to instead embrace care, simplicity, and environmental responsibility. These are introspective worlds where footsteps are gentle so as not to disturb what was here before.“

Sophie Gannon Gallery is currently closed in accordance with Stage 4 restrictions. However, they are continuing to present exhibitions online. View Looking at Trees here.
