‘As It Is’ on at Tinning Street Gallery

  As It Is – Roz Avent


In As It Is, artist Roz Avent explores her relationship to the landscape near her home in Central Victoria. “My aim is to create an image that gives the viewer a sense of place. Through the use of marks and tone I want the viewer to experience the particular sensations theses places elicit in me. The dry grass underfoot, the surface of rocks, bark and water, the weight of the rock formations and the time of day. Visually I am drawn to contrasts: in light and shade, texture and form. The underlying theme of my work is struggle. Whether it is the struggle to find the image, the struggle of displaced people as in my previous work or the struggle to negotiate a difficult and sometimes hostile environment as in these landscape drawings. ”
