In Convergence the art practices of three Hunter based artists are connected through shared approaches to texture, colour and close observance of the natural and manufactured world.
Drawn to that which is overlooked and disregarded, Susan Ryman lifts observations of her surroundings, floods them with colour-saturated light and creates a strange and sumptuous new world using layers of contour conscious texture. In these unobtrusive works, narratives are an undefined whisper that viewers are free to explore.
Prue Sailer explores themes based on wildlife and habitat conservation. She represents the multi-faceted character of our unique native wildlife through traditional drawing and painting techniques.
Giselle Penn known for her felt making, has for this exhibition assembled her handmade felt and other textured surfaces with found and collected objects that combine in an abstract play of form.
