GWA are pleased to have selected Melbourne artist Wendy Grace to prepare a series for the Rose Chapel interior at Macquarie Park Cemetery
Represented by Manyung Gallery Group, she was selected as her artwork offers not just a kind and thoughtful aesthetic but also one that is aligned with the design philosophy of the architecture. The narrative of this project is to provide environments as part of a journey which appeal to our sense and offer solitude for contemplation or simply gathering reflection.
“The artwork Wooded Hollow has a beautiful depth of field and stood out as a piece to select for the chapel. It provides a sense of contemplation under a tree canopy in a bushland setting.” says GWA Director Toby Wetherill.
Wooded Hollow is highly evocative of positive memories and textures within the natural surrounds.
Wendy is an artist based in Melbourne. Her art practice centres on photography and painting and creating works inspired by her natural surroundings. The characteristic contours, textures and colours found in the landscape reflect nature’s cycles of life, the process of growth and change which forms the basis of her work. Wendy’s fascination for the patterns of nature can be seen in her organic, abstract compositions of translucent paint on paper and canvas.
