Upcoming Exhibition ‘Between and Beyond’ at Art2Muse Gallery 23 January – 5 February 2018

Clare Brodie has been a finalist in numerous Australian art prizes and has held two solo exhibitions in Sydney. Her work is held in private collections and she has been featured in publications including the Sydney Morning Herald and Inside Out Magazine.

Her semi-abstract landscape paintings unearth the simple beauty of Australian bushland beyond its visual complexity.

 

Between and Beyond

Clare’s paintings stem from meditative walks she takes through her local bushland. She draws a sense of peace by deciphering and simplifying the complexities of both the bush and her life. Her works abstractly depict narratives of these walks, where she is looking between the sculptural bush to the sky beyond. Poignant and rhythmic forms in saturated colour schemes, form striking, balanced and harmonious compositions that unearth the simple beauty of nature beyond its visual complexity. It is this connection that Clare has with the strength of the Australian landscape that empowers her art practice and keeps her centred.
