On the river’s edge we meet



Opening 22 Apr 2023

About The Exhibition

It’s ten years that I’ve lived beside the Mighty Clarence River, upstream at Seelands SW Grafton. Every window looks towards the River and everyday it delights me. As I walk down the steep slope to the River and submerge my once-pristine art paper into the ebb and flow of this dominating, living presence, I feel a sense of collaboration with the River. Each offering is distinctive.

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.
