About the Exhibition

3 local Sunshine Coast artists explore personal connections to place and environment through clay, paint, mixed media and print; presenting a diverse collection of 2D and 3D work that considers themes of resonance, impression and impermanence. ‘Earthly Nuances’ takes you on a journey from the hinterland to the sea capturing both broad landscapes and environmental details. Conveyed through abstract visual language, imbued with colour, texture and form, the artists collectively present works that harness and describe both spontaneity and immediacy, through beautiful raku and saggar fired ceramics, and deeply distilled reflections on canvas and paper.

All three artists’ work emerges from a deep connection to the natural surrounds of the hinterland, rainforests and seascapes of the Noosa and Sunshine Coast area. Although very differently represented, the common thread of ‘earthly nuances’ resonates with each artist’s expression. Carol Watkins’ ceramic work brings the ‘earthly’ element to the exhibition, using raku and saggar processes with unique forms, glazing and design; Charlotte Wensley’s abstract colourscapes and mixed media work take you deep inside her emotional response to the natural world, while Bronwyn Barton’s artworks unveil the close connection to her bushland surrounds, beyond light, texture and form.
