Carol Whittaker : In Praise of Trees

June 14 – July 16, 2012

With bold, textural strokes of acrylic, Carol captures the play of colour and light, and the sublime accord of terrestrial ecosystem. In her own words, “Trees surround us on the Sunshine Coast, and often highlight our short- sighted way of seeing the world. They grow, decay and grow again, providing houses for birds and cities for insects. Trees provide oxygen, soil, noise – and silence. For the artist, they’re inspiring. The dignity of trees help us to copy their grace and strength. Time creeps for these sentinels of nature. What does Monday mean to a tree? In this show, I hope to have captured a reason for us to always remain “In Praise of Trees.”

Sponsored by Diana Starbuck of Prudential Sussex.
