Ten-year travels documented by artist

Ten-year travels documented by artist

27 Aug 2008

Artist, Noela Stratfords exhibition at the Phyllis Palmer Gallery, La Trobe University, is a series of charcoal drawings produced during her travels in Australia and overseas over a 10-year period.

'Travelling: time, place and translation 1998 2008' is Ms Stratfords expression of her physical and spiritual responses to the range of landscapes from which she drew inspiration.

'I found vast contrasts in the rolling flat plains in the Western District of Victoria and the winter floodplains of Bundanon in New South Wales; the damp and misty mountains of Northern Thailand and the dry dusty terrain of Southern Spain,' Ms Statford said.

Working closer to home, Ms Stratford noted the contrast between jagged volcanic forms of Hanging Rock and the sculptured and undulating forms of the rocks on Mount Alexander.

Ms Stratford enjoys the simplicity of working with charcoal and paper which, she says, allows her to translate impressions and experiences simply and directly.

The exhibition runs from Thursday, 28 August to Thursday, 18 September.
