The ANU informs us that the Drill Hall Gallery is going to play host to the floral paintings of local artist Elisabeth Kruger:
The works display Kruger’s recent focus on the human relationship with plant life: specifically the personal and fragile nature of the garden space and its cycle of luscious growth, flower and blossom which leads to decay, decomposition, and then verdant regrowth.
Kruger’s work is born directly from her garden, where plants are meticulously grown from seed into full flower, arranged or photographed and painstakingly painted in immaculate detail. The paintings are large in scale yet rich with fertile imagery that holds an intensity that transports the viewer.
Entry is free and the Gallery is open Wednesday-Sunday, 12-5pm.
