There’s a Currawong in the Garden – etchings – Karen Barnes

Exhibition: April 16 to May 20, 2017 (Opening: Opening event on April 16 at 2pm)

 

Karen Barnes is a visual artist working primarily with hard ground etchings to depict the inspirations she finds in those unexpected moments of joy found in nature and her own creative mind.

“In my garden or in nature I am often caught by that moment of stillness or the sudden flash of a bird as it lifts from a branch. Then I remember a goat I saw or a camel perhaps in a documentary or a photo of a prize bull from the newspaper and they all start to come together. The Currawong, always a welcome visitor in my garden, surprises me and creates that instant moment where time is still and the creative act begins.”

Karen Barnes is an artist working and living in Melbourne/Victoria. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Monash University and has exhibited in a variety of group exhibitions around Melbourne. Gippsland has been the inspiration for much of the work and the exhibition at Gecko Studio Gallery, There’s a Currawong in the Garden is her first solo show.
