Gaylene Earl: Playing with Paper / Julia Thorne: Flora-Scapes

Main Gallery

Gaylene Earl’s large scale works, with the lack of visual reference, are designed to engulf the viewer and engage them in a contemplation of the detail that makes the whole. Her work will be exhibited alongside Julia Thorne’s close-up deconstructed images of flora. These invite the viewer to truly see the intricacies, integration and innuendo of nature, so often overlooked in the frazzle of the modern world.
