Interior Landscapes opens!

Last night my solo show "Interior Landscapes" opened at the Brunswick Street Gallery. Kind Dog and I spent the morning setting up and learning lots about hanging a show.
It was a lovely sunny day and my part of the gallery faces north so the pieces just glowed on the walls.
Being Melbourne weather, (and technically midwinter) it absolutely poured with rain but a number of hardy souls turned up for the opening. We had a lovely time.

Then we went to our favourite local Italian restaurant to celebrate.

Interior Landscapes is on at the Brunswick Street Gallery, Fitzroy, until 1 August.

Here is the artist's blurb:

Felicity Griffin Clark holds a deep fascination with the relation of an Australian self-image that is intertwined with our landscape. Using mixed-media to evoke the bones of the country - Griffin Clark's work exposes what lies beneath the concrete and bluestone.

The topography that lies under Australia’s cities still exists – despite being graded and built over, the fundamental structures of lost furrows, escarpments and watercourses continue the lines and patterns that sculpt the landscape in rural and remote areas. Griffin Clark uses the malleability and textures of textiles and stitch combined with paint, paper, feathers and fur to explore this remote/urban counterpoint.
