March 2012 -"HOMAGE" by Elizabeth Chandler "In Honour of Margaret Olley"
"Homage" is an exhibition of paintings and photographs paying tribute to extraordinary landscapes, to the vibrant colours that surround us, and to the artists who have celebrated them, whether within the intimate moment or a vision of vast timelessness. Elizabeth Chandler lived and worked in Lane Cove for many years before moving to the Blue Mountains. There, the quality of the light and the restless drama of "The Blue Plateau" provides a rich source of subject matter for paintings and photography. From the gentle atmosphere of a misty morning to the savagery of a sudden windstorm or bush fire, with all their attendant damage, this exhibition seeks to reflect some of those moods, along with more intimate glimpses of still life and local village colour. Elizabeth also pays tribute to the inspiration of Margaret Olley's life and work, and the way in which she celebrated vibrant colour in the glorious chaos of everyday surroundings.
