Andrew Stacey desert – coast

Thursday 20 September 2012 to Tuesday 9 October 2012
10:00am - 4:00pm

Location: Stockyard Gallery | Category: Exhibition

Local artist and designer Andrew Stacey will present his second solo exhibition of paintings this month at Stockyard Gallery, Foster.

“These paintings are mostly about nature and big spaces, and have been completed over the last two years in acrylics on canvas and board. They’re about finding a way to represent enormous landscapes, the vivid colours in nature, about tearing up the snapshot and starting over.”

“This year I went travelling in areas that haven’t changed much since white settlement 200 years ago; out on the margins where there’s less than a quarter the rainfall we have here. Places like Lake Mungo, the Flinders Ranges, outback NSW and Murray Sunset country.
But there have been floods and some areas are just opening up again to visitors. The birdlife is amazing, especially along the major rivers like the Darling. Sometimes the sky can be black with kites, and the waterbirds are plenty. In fact everything’s breeding up big!”

“When the gallery offered me a show this year I jumped at the chance. Stockyard is such a great space with such a variety of shows, from community groups to students to photography to solo shows like mine. I’m excited to contribute a little to that richness.”

Andrew will be working at the gallery between 2.00 and 4.00 pm most days during the show.

The exhibition runs from Thursday 20 September until Tuesday 9 October 10.00am – 4.00 pm daily.
