The Na­ture of Blue

Art Almanac - - Art In Australia -

Cairns Art Gallery Queens­land Un­til 18 No­vem­ber, 2018

Work­ing from her rain­for­est stu­dio in Ku­randa, artist Mol­lie Bos­worth has cre­ated new wheel-thrown porce­lain ves­sels and works on pa­per and silk, to con­sider the spec­trum of the colour blue. ‘The Na­ture of Blue’ is the first ma­jor solo ex­hi­bi­tion for Bos­worth sur­vey­ing the key el­e­ments that drive her prac­tice; ma­te­ri­al­ity, sur­face and light. Botan­i­cal de­signs in­spired by her gar­den have been wa­ter-etched or ap­plied as laser-de­cals to the forms. She ex­per­i­ments with cyan­otype print­ing us­ing leaves for­aged from home and Trop­i­cal Queens­land’s sun­light.
