Work by Veronica Kent. Courtesy: the artist and Sarah Scout Presents, Melbourne.
Just over a year ago, Veronica Kent relocated from Brunswick to Bruny Island – off Tasmania’s south-east coast – to take up residence in and restore a century-old farmhouse. Living on remote Bruny Island, Kent has found herself, not surprisingly, more attuned to the natural environment. Her willingness to trust in beauty and the elemental forces of nature has markedly increased.
The body of new work that Kent has created for Island comprises stained glass, digital prints and sculptural assemblages made of brass, wood, stone, iron and shells; reflecting the artist’s closer engagement with the spectacular landscape that surrounds her.
