Despard Gallery is pleased to announce the jointed exhibition between contemporary painters Leah Thiessen and Lorraine Biggs. Although with distinctly different styles, both Thiessen and Biggs explore a close relationship to the landscape, using paint to visualise its intricacies, energy and light. As such, each of these unique approaches and techniques offer us alternative ways to appreciate and perceive our natural surroundings, including what is familiar, as well as uncharted. Despite Thiessen’s and Biggs’ work responding to very different environments, many thousands of kilometres apart, both artists capture an equally powerful sense of atmosphere, revealing an Australian landscape that is diverse, fragile and harmoniously balanced.
