Parallels with Nature

 

Parallels with Nature

Our latest exhibition is in many ways a study of duality: two artists studying two different strands of nature in simple tones of black and white; each artist carefully portrays the strength and fragility of life whether it is a drawing of an intricate teasel or the stippled portrayal of the mighty cape buffalo.

Jenny Haslimeier is a highly acclaimed emerging artist who splits her time between Scotland and New Zealand producing works that reflect the botanical world around her. Working in pencil and ink, Jenny has received a number of medals and commendations for her works since completing a Diploma of Botanical Illustration with distinction in 2016. The ink originals Jenny has produced for the exhibition are a study in fine detail, transforming lines and dots into elegant plant forms.

Fellow emerging artist Rachelle Sutherland uses thousands upon thousands of dots carefully built up over a minimum of 100 hours per piece to create highly detailed mammals. Rachelle is a self taught artist who has worked in several techniques and mediums before focusing on the time intensive technique of stippling. 'Parallels with Nature' will be Rachelle's debut exhibition and features a selection of endangered African mammals.

Both artists have produced works which show how different species have both strength and vulnerability while also showing how a small dot or line out of place can alter the balance of an artwork. 

'Parallels with Nature' opens Saturday 1 September from 10.30am.
