The trees, they whisper ...
The bush lies deep in the Australian psyche – and in the heart of many of its painters. In Fiona Lowry’s dreamy renderings, the scrub pulses and hums with surface tension.
To ‘airbrush’ is to idealise, but as Lowry’s instrument of choice it delivers a lightness of touch, breathing spirit into portraits that have won her critical acclaim in the Archibald Prize 2014 and the 2008 Doug Moran National Portrait Prize.
