Two Birds, Linocut
Carolyn Graham has held several solo exhibitions at Falkner Gallery and each one has attracted an enthusiastic audience. This show ‘Between Daylight and Dark’ includes landscapes as well as animals and birds.
The landscapes describe the Central Victorian region. Her expressive style allows her to eliminate the superfluous details of the view in order to capture the essence, particularly of the areas around Castlemaine and towards Ballan and Ballarat. Hilly farmlands in Spring and Summer become quilted patterns divided by cypress windbreaks - her trademark signature.
Her birds and animals are expressive and dramatic whether fighting hunting dogs, trotting, fat pigs or bold, confronting hares and crows.
