Matters at Hand

Heather Gaudio Fine Art

This all-women exhibition explores an appreciation for the natural world, its beauty and ephemerality. Through the use of different mediums and a range of aesthetics, the artists share an attention to detail, an inherent curiosity and instinctual understanding of materiality. They are also keenly in tune with cultural narratives that remind us that we are all part of a universal continuum.

Turning to water and other natural environments for inspiration are the paintings by Pegan Brooke. Varying reflections of light and its fleeting essence are represented in patterned gradations of neutral to frosty and dark hues.   Brooke’s oils and added pigments are formed from pure elements of the earth, such as micas, pewter powders and iron oxides. The subtly shimmering surfaces slow us to a place where we can reconvene with our most basic contemplative, natural state of being.
