Foreign Affairs by Rosalie Gascoigne

Artwork Detail Request a print

Rosalie Gascoigne’s meditative assemblages carry the imprint of their place of construction: the wide tablelands near Canberra she describes as ‘all air, all light, all space, all understatement’. Choosing to work with materials that ‘have had sun and wind on them’, Gascoigne’s grids of subtly weathered wood evoke the partitioning and cultivation of the land. Combining order and repetition with soft irregularities, her spare abstract compositions create a sense of the landscape as a complex network of natural and cultural processes.
