Shoalhaven based artist Vivien Tanner is widely recognised for her award winning paintings of picturesque landscapes. This exhibition investigates another important element of her practice, explorations of landscape and form which aim to capture the true essence of a scene.
In these works, light and colour are used to create an immersive mood and engage the viewer. While more abstract in form, the long shadows of dusk or sunlit vistas that inspired the artist are palpable.
This exhibition offers a celebration of the beauty and diversity of the Australian landscape. The gentle works are imbued with a sense of peace and reflect the soothing effect nature has on our psyche.
