Artists Therese Flynn-Clarke and Mary Elizabeth Barron reflect on our environment and place from aerial viewpoints and ground level through their exhibitions Patterns of My Days (Rights of Nature) and Under Foot.

Patterns of my Days (Rights of Nature) by Therese Flynn-Clarke

Therese's art practice has long held a deep connection to place and the opportunity to visually and viscerally connect to many places in remote and regional Queensland is the inspiration for the 'Patterns of my Days’ component within the title of this exhibition. 
Over many years, Therese has travelled across the landscape of the eastern states of Australia by car and plane. Some were short 3-day working visits; others, part of extended family holidays. Flying into locations and viewing the land from the air has long held a fascination for Therese artistically.  For more information click here

Under Foot by Mary Elizabeth Barron

The beauty in the often less appreciated and noticed natural wonders beneath our feet are the source of inspiration for this body of work. These works seek to draw attention to the intricacies of natural debris. The colour, shape and textural qualities of leaves in their dying stages, fallen bark and twigs are complex and intriguing. These elements are often either un-noticed or considered green rubbish.
‘Shrines to Nature’ and ‘Vessels of Nature’ are sculptural containers that are a celebration of the diversity of colours, textures and nature of the natural plant materials from which they are made.
