The word "indigo" brings so many
flashes of association - the colour,
the plants, a budget Indian airline!
However for me, the main meaning
is "transformation and
wonderment". The magic of
fermenting a plant and extracting
the colour - the excitement of
pulling green fabric from a dye pot
and watching it oxidise and become
blue. The wonder of human
ingenuity in discovering the
process. Indigo is all about the
hidden being revealed.

Afterglow | Carly Le Cerf
Australian Artist Carly Le Cerf is known for her aerial and vista landscape paintings of
the Great Southern Region, Western Australia. She creates her unique works using a
mixed media of encaustic painting medium, acrylic and oil paint layered and applied
to the board to create a highly textured effect. She spends hours on each piece,
allowing the process to have a voice while it takes her on a journey of discovery
towards a pure and personal expression of the landscape.
'Afterglow' is a series of works derived from a plein air expedition Carly undertook
throughout the region in October this year. Paintings, sketches and photographs
from the journey have been developed by Carly into this exhibition of mixed media
works, which embody the seductive colours experienced at dusk.

personal connections within the local landscape - its wildness,
remoteness, light, mists, trees and atmosphere. 'Wilds' brings all

Convergence | Justine Gamblin
Through the use of imagery of animals grouping together, in
particular schooling fish, Justine explores aspects of identity.
Using this symbology to create drawings and prints on paper she
investigates ideas to do with her own connectivity to others and
her identity in relation to family, ancestry, genetic make-up and
life in a small community.
