Hopeful Disruptions: River Journeys
Clarence Valley Arts & Cultural Festival
Shop 6, 31 Skinner Street, South Grafton
Opening 5th of april 2022
About the exhibition
River journeys is a multimedia installation exploring the connections between old trees and the River, and the importance of these trees for the ecosystem. Hopeful Disruptions is an evolving project to connect art, environment, and community. Artists are Debbie Taylor, Painting and mixed media, Rochelle Summerfield, Drawing and installation, Tracy Pateman, Silversmith and small metals and Will Rodgers Acoustic Ecologist and Musician.
Rochelle Summerfield’s art practice is deeply influenced by her connections and experiences with the rivers and streams where she lives. Through experimentation and play, Rochelle’s drawings and installations include artworks that collaborate with the river as part of the process. Drawings embrace working over river sediment or the process of river staining and blending of gouache colours: wet in wet in the pouring rain, and wet on dry in the studio.
Rochelle hopes to raise an appreciation and respect for this vital lifeblood, the River.
