Susan Stevenson - 'Invisible Country'
Wednesday 10 October - Sunday 4 November 2018
Imagined, remembered and mythic – in the corners of our collective and personal memories, images from the vast space of inland Australia inform our national identity. In that flat open country, scale and distance are impossible to calculate and the human presence is inconsequential. The horizon is the only certain visual reference and even that throws up mirages – shimmering deceptively with the dashed hope of an inland sea. Susan Stevenson’s paintings in Invisible Country reduce the landscape to blocks of colour using acrylic, oil pastels and lead pencil.
