Hills of Yarrabah
18 November - 3 December, 2017


Victoria Howlett’s exhibition ‘Hills of Yarrabah’ teases the border between the imaginary and the observed: between abstraction and the representational. At times collage is added to paintings as domestic symbols are juxtaposed with landscape motifs. Her subject matter reflects a return to remembered landscapes, both physical and of the senses, as the hills of Yarrabah, a particular jug and a cow mother are revisited and reconstructed into new patterns of meaning. Howlett won the 2017 Corangamarah art prize with her painting from this series titled ‘Picnic in the Hills – Still Life in an Imaginary Landscape’.
