Jacqui Malins Fossilised Water and Petrified Air @ Belconnen Arts Centre

This is a remarkably beautiful exhibition. It consists of mainly charcoal, acrylic and pastel work on canvas or paper and gorgeous, pottery, ceramic stoneware, The whole exhibition is inspired by the ancient rugged landscape of the Kimberley Ranges in Western Australia.
Her sense of the colour and texture of the area is delightful. The drawings are large and rough looking. The pottery cries out “touch me!” because of its rocky layered landscape look. As an artist Ms Malins has done a marvelous job of bringing that environment into the gallery.
