METROPOLIS GALLERY – Stella Clarke: On Bass Strait
4 January @ 9:00 am - 27 January @ 4:00 pm
Stella Clarke‘s new coastal paintings are inspired by the wild coastlines which border Bass Strait and the Southern Ocean, exploring both the dramatic rim of our land flanked by the Great Ocean Road as well as the rocky shores of King Island. While they arise from walking in these places and from notes and photos taken, they also catch impressions and memories. They are poems in paint, reflective compositions that celebrate the margin between land and sea, giving prominence to the fragile wildflowers and wind-sculpted plants that cling to cliff edges, thriving in the fierce onslaught of salt air and sea-spray.
Due to the high demand for Stella’s paintings in 2018, Metropolis Gallery is excited to present STELLA CLARKE: On Bass Strait, an exhibition of new works from the artist’s studio Friday 4 – 27 January 2019.
