Titled from Edgar Allan Poe’s poem The Raven, the works in this exhibition are from Sharon Field’s home studio in the rural setting of Burra, inspired by the local landscape.
They carry a message of environmental conservation, speaking of the human bond with the plants, animals and insects around us. The exhibition questions how well life around us will survive with the impact of global warming and the actions of people more generally.
The paradox of rebirth and regeneration after natural disasters is in stark contrast to the destruction they wreak. The artist draws our attention to the almost invisible extinction of insects for example and provides cameos of the small things of beauty that are strong when their environment is healthy.
The works are an object lesson, nevertheless beautiful, in loss.
Awarded Associate Membership of the UK Society of Botanical Artists (London), Sharon has won numerous awards and exhibited widely. This solo exhibition is Sharon’s fourth with Suki & Hugh Gallery in Bungendore.
