The Nature of Blue
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.
