Yellow Sun, Blue Gum | Ileigh Hellier
3 December 2022 - 26 February 2023
Yellow sun, blue gum is a meditation on the landscape and a close inspection of place. In this exhibition the subject, Glenrock Reserve, reveals the paradox of plein air painting, the tension between painterly activity and sharp attention to surroundings and the peace and quietude of mindfulness. Both can be simple and complex, effortless and arduous. Yellow sun, blue gum provides a sanctuary and a yearning for quiet contemplation.
