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.
