EXHIBITIONS    Trudi Harley: Origins & Connections

Central Goldfields Art Gallery

16.09.17 to 15.10.17




Trudi Harley’s exhibition of meticulously detailed oil paintings explore her rural farming childhood. She tells us that, ‘these artworks aim to evoke memories and return us to the past. I draw on my own reflections of upbringing and rural domesticity.’

Trudi's paintings are created in the 17th century still-life and portraiture style. However, she adds to the tradition by depicting objects connected with her family's past and closely examines her own physical appearance, searching for traces of her origins. The artworks pose the question, what makes us who we are?
