12 – 29 August 2015: Traces of Place


FEATURING: Rowena Doyle, Olivia Mazzone and Geraldine Richards

In Traces of Place three artists explore their mutual appreciation for map-making as a platform for investigating connections to place and environment.

Geraldine Richards’ paintings are formed from her physical and emotional responses to journeys and places she encounters. Her use of colour and line create map like compositions akin to aerial photography.

Rowena Doyle’s repurposed maps explore connections between biological and geographical data, natural pattern and anatomy. The results are new topologies and redefined geographical boundaries that mimic the changing landscape

In Olivia Mazzone’s works we see an exploration of space, site and object. She investigates architectural spaces and maps as well as natural spaces, tracing the notion of place alongside her own presence.
