Rebecca Waterstone
Near and Far
26 April– 20 May 2018

This exhibition explores place, distance and the powerful presence of mountains, both in Australia (Blue Mountains), and Scotland (Highlands / Isle of Skye). These themes are investigated through distilled imagery and colour fields, sensory materials and found objects. Works are drawn from immersion in these landscapes and transposed into a series of meditative, minimal works. Mountains are metaphors for the anchoring of self in place. Works span various media, including painting photography and film. The pull that important places – and the people within them – have on the psyche, is universal and profound.
