Sydney based artist Gabrielle Courtenay has had twenty years experience as an artist and teacher. She has exhibited widely throughout Australia and had a major exhibition in Hong Kong in 2002. Her current work is predominantly concerned with abstract qualities of organic form and visual space, specifically how the inner heart of the floral form conjures an inner space, or void, rich in mystery and beauty. Hill End will allow Gabrielle to consider a new thematic direction away from her urban base. The dramatic landscape, and particularly the marks left upon it by miners, will give her fresh material for the exploration of the void and the mythology of our attachment to the land.
