Coppice 4.0
19 January - 15 February 2014

Lisa Woolfe lives on the edge of the Manly Dam catchment area in Sydney - 270 hectares of dense bush abutting her home. It has been the persistent landscape of her everyday, her memories and her inspiration, as she says: 'I am interested in looking at my subject from the inside out, exploring the experience of being in it, how it moves and does not, how it sounds, smells, its scale and textures.'

As an artist who holds drawing at the heart of her practice, the sense of hand and gesture in this delicate installation of kozo (rice paper) with ink and wax fuses an Asian aesthetic with one that is quintessentially Australia.

Lisa added, 'The work explores the relationships between the elements, the spaces between adn the rhythms of the bush landscape.'
