Studio Visit with Ruby Davies

Ruby Davies lives on a property just outside of Dubbo in Central NSW. We’re in the middle of a drought and the land is parched. Red dust covers the studio where where Ruby paints at the back of her property. The pool lies empty, and the garden is struggling to survive.

The effects of the drought are impossible to escape, and it’s the drought which has become a central theme of Ruby’s most recent body of work Sold Down the River: Recent Paintings of the Darling Barka. This extensive series of paintings captures perfectly a uniquely Australian colour pallette.

Studio Visit with Madeline Young

Tucked away behind The Corner Store Gallery is a room filled with art and craft supplies. Since we moved into our new home behind the gallery I’ve been lucky enough to inherit this little room as my new studio and craft room, much to my husband’s delight (no more painting on the kitchen table). I feel incredibly lucky to have this space, it’s right off the gallery so while I’m at work I can hide away and keep my practice alive.

Studio Visit with Genevieve Bessell-Browne

Genevieve is a collector. Beautiful, vintage, porcelain figurines cover every horizontal surface, and some of the walls. There are flowers and plants everywhere and then there’s the art. Paintings featuring the beloved collection of knick-knacks, vintage fabric and other objects cover the walls. I was in heaven!

As well as completing this series of work for Suburban Requiem which making its way to The Corner Store Gallery, Amy already has one solo exhibition under her belt after the birth of her first baby Maeve in 2017. I caught up with Amy to learn just how she does it...
