Gay Emmerson & Georgia Freebody Exhibition – The Garden in The Garden Berry
April 9 @ 8:00 am - May 6 @ 3:00 pm
Paintings of flowers, close up and detailed, lead to abstract visions suggesting petals, lights and shadows, even perfume.
Circular micro-forests are tiny and protected, but welcoming as well, offering a natural space to rest, reflect, and belong.
Cool blue green paintings looking up into trees contrast the brightly coloured interior of flowers and together bring the sense of sunlight, water and shadows of a dappled garden into The Garden gallery space.
About the artists
Gay Emmerson graduated from Canberra School of Art in 1979 and has been painting ever since. She is mainly a landscape painter, but this also covers seascapes and studies of natural patterns such as tree bark and flowers. These flower paintings are among her most recent works, and were commenced during the COVID lockdown last year, when painting the bright colours of the local flowers helped her get through a difficult year.
Georgia Freebody is an artist, teacher and art therapist local to Sydney, Australia. Her paintings and drawings range from figurative to abstract, their content and expression evocative of interacting with and being a part of the natural world. Georgia believes that engaging with art is restorative and to notice, love and connect with one another through art helps us understand our place in the world.
