A Sense of Place

Fri 26 July - Wed 11 September

My work is a response to landscape across the country in all its inspiring forms, and includes farmland, green forests, red desert and the beautiful bush in between. Nature has been a place of solace and connection since I was a child and I paint what I feel in its presence, using memory and my own photo references.

The artworks in ‘A Sense of Place’ represent the diversity of tools, palettes and styles I use to explore an authentic vision of a personal experience. The variety in the works, from abstraction to impressionism, also reflects a constant desire to explore different ways of seeing and responding to landscape in the moment.

Doodie has been a Finalist in a number of Art Prizes, including the Hawkesbury Art Prize, the ANL Maritime Art Award and the Greenway Art Prize. She has exhibited in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane and her work is held in collections in the UK, the US and Australia.

Opening: Friday, 26 July 2024, 5.30pm for a 6pm start. Please RSVP by 24 July.
