Sea Sky Land

Vicki Swift

is a Northern Rivers based artist

who has a passion for the environment

and abstract painting.

 

Her art practice spans 50 years

 and the Serpentine Community Gallery

 is proud to present

Sea Sky Land

- a retrospective exhibition of her work.

Opening at 2pm on Sunday

26th of June 2016,

Vicki Swift's

Sea Sky Land

runs until 3rd July 2016.

Vicki will be generously donating

 a percentage from sales of her work to

WIRES

(The NSW Wildlife Information,

Rescue and Education Service Inc).

Drawing her inspiration from her surroundings,

Vicki Swift’s work is reflective of

the relationship between nature and the self.

Rather than reproducing landscape

in a classically representational way,

she captures the essence and the feeling

of being within the landscape.

From the coast to the hills,

 Vicki uses a sophisticated

 process of deconstruction in her works.

Her restrained palette and the layering of textures

 makes her paintings vibrate in a tactile way

…offering the viewer

an impressionistic interpretation of landscape.

One of her methodologies involves using shells

 as a means of ‘printing’ paint directly onto the canvas

 which creates patterns transporting us

 on to the sandy beaches and

into the landscape she lives in.
