"The world is vibration, nothing in nature is at absolute rest. Everything is in a state of movement and in all movement rhythm is found." - Laurie Buchanan
In her first solo exhibition, Christine Huntley-Harris explores the diverse landscape of the Gippsland region, Wilson’s Prom, Kosciuszko and Magnetic Island. The travel restrictions of 2020 encouraged the artist to explore and paint ‘en plein air’ the beautiful coastal walking tracks close to her home in Bayside Melbourne. The artist states that: "When I look at the landscape I see rhythm & movement. Layers, textures and patterns formed over time by the elements. Nature bending, growing and pushing forward, adapting constantly to its environment."
