Sarah Hendy: Waiting for Daybreak

September 21, 2019 - October 5, 2019

Sarah Hendy, Waiting for Daybreak, 2018. Oil on glass, 137 x 104cm. Courtesy: the artist and MARS Gallery, Victoria. 

 

Waiting For Daybreak is a series of paintings characterised by verdant and luxurious plant growth with delicate ferns growing among a crowded landscape of giant stinging trees, booyongs and flame trees.

In 2017, Sarah Hendy was washed away in a flood in the middle of the night as a result of Ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie. Narrowly escaping drowning, she spent hours badly injured in remote rainforest, trying to stay alive, waiting for daybreak to be rescued.

The result of this narrative dilemma is a series of paintings that rethink the tension between the artist’s violent and lonely experience and the landscape’s aesthetic virtue.

 

Exhibition opens: 6–8pm Saturday 21 September 2019
