Combining memory with present moments of exploration, Clare Cowley is developing a technique for unravelling myths about identity in association with her surroundings. Through her involvement in numerous Indigenous-led art projects, Clare has been mentored in her approach to responding to the sacred countries in Australia. Her process uses multiple mediums, offering ways to listen and interact with the nuances of the environment by employing playful responses to the light, movement and characters she has witnessed. Clare works with paint in an open-ended way - like a song - inviting audiences to contemplate a new story. As works travel to new environments, gathering information as they go, they are imbued with imaginings, myths and stories she has collected about areas visited. Her artwork seeks to accomplish a sense of transience, like in a dream or a memory, while acknowledging the sacredness of places around Australia.

Join us for an Artist Talk event on Sunday 11 February at 11am.

Free event | All welcome | No bookings required.
