The Australian landscape in a dreamlike vision of wilderness – this is the subject matter for Sydney artist Fiona Lowry’s first solo exhibition While the sun burns behind the islands.
The exhibition will show at the Jan Murphy Gallery from the 27 August until the 21 September, offering Lowry’s continued vision of dreamy renderings and natural beauty unnaturally realised in a striking high-key palette. Her choice of instrument is the ‘airbrush’, which delivers a lightness of touch to the canvas and her portraits, which have won her critical acclaim.
A regular exhibitor in the Archibald, Wynne and Sulman prizes, in 2013 Lowry won the Fleurieu Landscape Prize. Her work is held in a number of public collections including the Museum of Contemporary Art, the National Portrait Gallery, Artbank, the University of Queensland Art Museum and the Macquarie Bank Collection.
