Autumn 4 March – 21 May

Rochelle Summerfield – A Wayfarer on the Nepean features drawing and animation works resulting from the artist’s recent Summer Studio Residency at Penrith Regional Gallery & The Lewers Bequest.

Summerfield examines female experience and our human need for connection to nature through her work, which explores the rich riverscapes of her local area – the Clarence River in rural Grafton, north-eastern New South Wales. While in residence at Penrith she considered the Nepean as a riverscape – a cultured and gendered space – all with a darkly humourous nod and a wink.

Working between classic media such as drawing and collage; and new technologies including photography and digital media, Summerfield irreverently reinvents her landscapes in a decidedly contemporary, Australian and female character.
