Gill Pedrana is based in Dubbo, New South Wales, her studio a converted concrete seed shed with original timber flooring and pitched roof. Pedrana’s desire for surrealism links with her love of animals, and it all comes together in her paintings and drawings. She explores the landscape within an unrelenting drought, that has her seeing more dead trees, sparse foliage and thinking about the fauna. Pedrana is an animal lover and finds most of these creatures aesthetically beautiful; she has taken them in her own way and placed them into feminine pastel-hued landscapes, informing us of the fragility of the land.
