Rosalie Gascoigne: Material as Landscape
July - 27 September 1998
National Gallery of Australia
exhibition, which was curated by Deborah Edwards for the Art Gallery of
New South Wales, will be at the National Gallery of Australia from 4 July
to 27 September 1998.
It is particularly appropriate for the exhibition to come to Canberra as Rosalie has lived in the Canberra region since the early 1940s. Her work is a response to her environment, and is made from found objects using simple techniques such as fragmentation, assemblage, repetition and compression. The works have a lyrical and metaphorical relationship with the landscape, and their simplicity and poetry evokes pleasure both in the objects and in their associative power.
