‘Dreaming of Nature’ explores the way artists Robyn Sharp and Vanessa Harrington interpret the natural world, the landscape and its elusive inhabitants.
These dreams are subconscious, they become the mark on the page, the brush of paint across the canvas, celebrating sacred spaces and powerful totems.
“I am amazed and seduced by the diversity and quality of all the different facets of Robyn Sharp’s artistic creativity: both with clay, pencils & painting. She is very eloquently yet sensually inspired by the powerful beauty of Nature in Australia where she lives at the heart of the rain forest” Jean Dethier, curator Centre Pompidou Museum, Paris
Robyn Sharp’s art journey began in the 1970s, living and exhibiting in Sydney; Los Angeles; Toronto; Paris; London. Robyn originally specialised in Chinese and Japanese art, however her range of reference has broadened enormously after working in different countries, visiting galleries and museums on four continents.
Since living in Foxground, Robyn has been inspired to capture the natural beauty of the plants and abundant wild life of birds and animals around her. Read more about Robyn Sharp here https://www.robyncsharp.com/
Vanessa Harrington has a passion for the natural world. Her lifelong curiosity and quest for knowledge of flora and fauna deeply influence her artistic pursuits.
Vanessa’s body of work includes sculpture, painting, printmaking, photography, weaving, illustration, and transient installations of found objects. Subtle observations of nature are integral to her work and the complexity found in nature, its beauty and fragility. Read more about Vanessa Harrington here https://vanessaharrington.com.au/
