Sus­tain­ing Light

Bathurst Re­gional Art Gallery Un­til 5 Au­gust, 2018

Work­ing mainly in-situ, Rachel El­lis has cap­tured the light, colour and topol­ogy of the NSW Cen­tral Table­lands since her move to Bathurst in 2001. Cu­rated by Ju­lian Woods, ‘Sus­tain­ing Light’ brings to­gether se­lected works from public and pri­vate col­lec­tions high­light­ing the artist’s in­ter­est in lu­min­ism and in­ter­ac­tion with line, shape and form. Her paint­ings and draw­ings of the re­gion’s sea­sons, land­scapes and streetscapes are a ‘re­sponse to some­thing seen and felt’. ‘I love the way light can trans­form what we see,’ says El­lis.
