Christine Appleby - Periderm: Perceptions of the Tree Surface

Christine Appleby - Periderm: Perceptions of the Tree Surface

  • The Corner Store Gallery (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Christine Appleby is a recent first-class honour graduate from the ANU school of Art and Design. Her practice evokes the colour, line, shape and texture found in natural settings. She is captivated by the inventive process and infinite possibilities of weaving. She uses her chosen media, weaving, to demonstrate the rhythms and transience of nature.

While there is predictability to the natural environment, her work reveals a randomness, an unsophisticated organisation and a degree of ambiguity. The memory and essence of her experience captured in her imagination and her responses evokes those experiences in visual form. She focuses on ideas of inconsistency, imperfection and irregularity, capturing the ephemeral qualities of the natural world.

Sold Down the River - Ruby Davies

  • The Corner Store Gallery (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

When I started this series in 2017 my focus was the muted beauty of the Darling Barka.  The often sombre colours, the slope of banks and the light at different times of day. Since September 2018 when Four Corners exposed corruption, water theft, and an avalanche of media attention - these escalating conflicts have seeped into my images. A shift in colour intensity and thickness of paint -  a reflection on the strength of connections to this river system for myself and many others in awe of its presence.

The Light is Different Here - Madeline Young

  • The Corner Store Gallery (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Madeline Young’s abstract compositions are inspired by the unique beauty of the Australian bush; the way dappled sunlight filters through the canopy, casting long rays of light and shadow and the distinctive blue-green of Eucalyptus leaves filling the air with their familiar scent. Madeline simplifies and exaggerates the shapes she finds in nature and uses blocks of colour to create works that, like the Australian bush, are simultaneously vibrant and serene.

My love of the Australian rural landscape and all things bovine continues to grow. I love nothing more than to stand among my beauties and appreciate their different noses, ears, eyes and hair do’s - yes cows have their own, unique little tufts just between their ears.
I initially painted cows in a naive style and included their surroundings. As my work progressed and my love of cows grew I wanted to better express each individual cows personality. I decided to make them into pure portraits.  I want the viewer to question if they are a photograph or painting.

Gaahna Bula are the Wiradjuri aboriginal words meaning two shoulders – or more commonly known as Mount Canobolas.

I am fortunate enough to live in a location with sweeping views of Mt Canobolas which I sit and admire daily. Many mornings, afternoons and late evenings are spent watching as the spectacular colours of the seasons move in and then out. Watching as the changing hues of the day move across the majestic peaks and fold into magnificent sunsets.
