Christine Druitt Preston | Still A Stilled Life

Still A Stilled Life hopes to provide the audience with a new lens through which to experience the known. The exhibition title acknowledges the bequest made by Ben and Hazel Broadhurst of their home Hazelhurst to the community and is borrowed from the poem 'Afterwards' by Thomas Hardy – a contemplation on how the world goes on after one's death. 

Art Exhibition coming up at Artsite Galleries in Newtown precinct, New South Wales, Australia.

“My artwork explores themes related to domestic interiors and gardens. The enforced period of lockdown in 2021, and the seemingly never-ending wet weather that followed well into 2022 covered the period I had set aside to make work for this project. Rather than seeing this time of containment an obstacle, I sought to take the opportunity to develop a new way of informing my practice. Until now, drawings made in direct response to place have been the foundation stone of my image making.”

Still A Stilled Life is Christine Druitt Preston’s second solo exhibition at Artsite Contemporary Galleries from 04 February – 26 March 2023.
