Bronwyn shows an artistic sixth sense for the colours hidden within the blush of sunrise. The mangroves seem to be dancing in the dawn. This is an unusual, impressive canvas for a day room, whether it be a lounge or dining room.

The mangrove subject matter of this painting has been captured by Bronwyn Doherty in such a bright and unique way. The overall appeal for me comes from the highlights and extraordinary colour palette. Doherty has brought life to the scene with rippled water and fresh greenery dotted over a speckled blue sky. The overlapping mangrove branches offer an interesting play on the depth of field, encouraging they eye to navigate through to the background. A lovely piece, potentially enjoyed most by an art collector familiar with and/or appreciative of the mangrove ecosystem.

GIOVANNA FRAGOMELI

Indico Galleries, Sydney

The hint of pointilism – both in the use of dashes of colour and placement – lends this artwork a sense of play in what is otherwise a realm of chaos. Through the thoughtful use of colour, the artist tentatively challenges the viewer to question what it is we are really seeing. From the outset this appears to be a landscape artwork, but upon closer view there is much more going on and more that we can deliberate.
