SEEING LIFE THROUGH A GREEN LENS…
In August we welcome Batlow artist Robyn Veneer Sweeney to the ERA Shop front.
Robyn describes herself as an ecological artist, with a practice that spans a production of environmentally targeted artworks and working within community through creative activities.
Prior to graduating from Wollongong University with a degree in Creative Arts, majoring in painting and sculpture in the late 80’s, Robyn worked as a designer and conservator where her work was often featured in magazines such as Belle, Architectural Review, Vogue Living etc.
Relocating to Townsville in the 90’s, Robyn established herself as a regular exhibitor at Regional & Contemporary Galleries, where there was a particular interest in environmental works, especially those related to reef health. She was frequently engaged in the Artist in Schools Program, giving students and teachers the opportunity to engage creatively on local environmental issues.
Robyn’s work has been reviewed in Qld Art Journals such as Artgaze & Eyeline.
Returning to NSW in 2017, Robyn has been involved in Adelong Ephemera 2018 & 2019 as a Land Artist & engaged through Community Cultural Development activities in her new hometown of Batlow.
Her work: ‘DARLING! Blue-green should never be seen.’, is from the ‘Water Wars’ series and will be hanging in the ERA Window Gallery until September 2nd.
