Gallery 127’s newest exhibition, Primitive, explores the natural and physical geography of the Australian landscape.
Ranging across three mediums, ceramics, paintings and photography, the exhibit showcases local artist Trina Ambrose’s reflections on her observations of the natural world.
Interested in art since her childhood, Ms Ambrose recently travelled through the Northern Territory and Western Australia and said her fascination with nature is what inspires her work.
“I’m really interested in nature, pattern, texture and the natural form. Whenever I look at something I always look at it in terms of a picture, so I take note of how beautiful the details are,” she said.
“The inspiration comes first, so I’ll probably see something in the landscape and then I’ll think of what sort of medium I’ll use to capture it.”
A graphic designer by trade, Ms Ambrose said her photography and acrylic paintings will be on display alongside her newer art form, ceramics.
Primitive will officially open today, Friday, October 4 from 5.30 to 6.30 pm at Gallery 127 and will run until October 28.
