Clare Purser, Rathdowney 2020, Mixed media on paper, 61 x 79 cm


Getting Away From It All

Getting Away From It All represents a coming together of four artists with diverse approaches to painting the landscape. From the subtropical inner-city streets of Stephen Nothling’s paintings, the expressive mountain ranges of Clare Purser’s South East QLD, the gestural paintings of Robert Moore’s Northern Rivers environment to the intimate paintings of Maureen Hansen’s inner city.  All the artists share a common thread, a passion for painting their environment and an expression of place and belonging.
