"I have not tried to reproduce nature: I have represented it.” Paul Cézanne, French painter
Earlier this year, British artist Sarah Chalmers spent time at four Bush Heritage reserves: Nardoo Hills in central Victoria and Oura Oura, Liffey Valley and Friendly Beaches in Tasmania.
The goal was for her to capture the spirit of these places in artistic works. Sarah's art celebrates Bush Heritage’s commitment to these precious landscapes and to the native ecosystems they host.
Months after her visit Sarah continues to create art about her trip to Australia. She says: “I am still painting Australia, particularly Tasmania. It's strange – as though I had become possessed with this place. It's also keeping me sane.”
You can view Sarah’s journey and the many artworks that resulted from it in Sarah's online gallery.
The original artworks are available for sale. If you're interested, please email Sarah directly at [email protected]
Sarah's online show 'Lost Voices' is now live. The art continues to draw on her experience of south eastern Australia and Tasmania. You can view and purchase the artworks here: www.sarahchalmers.co.uk/shop
