Description of Exhibition/Event

‘The Places We Go…’
This is the second exhibition Naomi White, Leisl Baker and David Usher have held together at the Latrobe Gallery. The new paintings that each of the artist has completed over the course of the last 12 months represent their individual responses to the places they have visited or passed through in that time. Each has visited sites along the coastline or explored some familiar (and unfamiliar) haunts in more remote locations.
‘The Places We Go…’ exhibition is scaffolded by each artist engaging directly with the environment to generate works through the familiar processes of sketching, painting studies, documenting, and responding with mark-making to the en plein air encounter/experience.
Each artist views the landscape through a personal lens, and this lens or ‘eye’ directly prescribes how these initial ‘sketches’ are interpreted from the places they go, into the completed works, once back in the privacy of their individual studios. These works continue to build upon their experiences as artists in the landscape and demonstrate a genuine desire to find ways of ‘re-imaging’ environments through the act of painting.
