Karyn Fendley’s landscape paintings, with their bright skies, deep shadows and silhouettes, capture the essence of the Australian landscape.
After spending time in the field, Fendley returns to the studio to paint artworks that investigate how we remember the places we have visited. Dramatic composition, extremes of lightness and darkness, and flattened perspectives are hallmarks of her painting practice.
“I hope to capture the spirit of the Australian landscape and share my experience of the natural world through my artwork. I believe that while spending time in nature or when looking at images of nature, we become aware of our own small place in the world, bringing a little perspective into our lives.” Karyn Fendley
