Paperbark :: Lionel Bawden
6 Apr – 12 May 2019
Gallery 3

Official Opening: 6pm Friday 5 April 2019

 

Lionel Bawden’s new solo exhibition continues the artist’s fascination with the forms of nature taking the tree as both conceptual focus and material form.

Living in the Northern Rivers for a number of years, the artist is turning his attention to trees as a core symbol of his connection to the region and selects the Paperbark as the most fertile motif of a life in continual flux, where damage and vitality flourish side by side.

Bawden explores the motifs of tree and forest, whilst reflecting on his own use of wood and paper throughout his art career. The work reflects on the artist’s relationship to the earth and simultaneous consumption of it, a life of alternating reverence and forgetting. The exhibition is created in part during Bawden’s residency at Lismore Regional Gallery in The Binns Artist Studio in early 2019 and is activated by a conversation with the large Paperbark tree outside the gallery window.
