Liz Donley is a local landscape artist with a strong spiritual connection to the Australian bush. In this new exhibition titled Lost, Liz focuses on the coast, the rivers and the forest – what may be LOST in the passage of time.
‘Lost’ will be officially opened at the Moran Gallery, Sylvania on Wednesday 30 November from 6pm to 8pm. The exhibition will be open from Thursday 1 December 2016 to Tuesday 31 January 2017, 10am to 4pm daily with free entry.
Liz’s detailed works capture the stillness of the environment and invite the viewer to secret places. “I have a deep concern for nature and the land – what must be protected and cherished, the fragility and delicate balance of nature and life itself” she said.
Often there is a personal meaning in Liz’s choice of subject alluding to her life’s path. Following the traumatic death of her adult daughter Liz used art as a means of therapy and her painting took on a deeper meaning through symbolism, analogy and colour. She volunteers both as an art guide at Hazelhurst Regional Gallery, bringing art appreciation to the public and as a bushcare helper following her interest in environmental issues.
