Ones to Watch: Gill Pedrana

THE ART EDIT TEAM PRESENTS THE ARTISTS ON ITS RADAR RIGHT NOW.

In a recent series made for her first Sydney exhibition BEAUTY + THE BUSH, Gill Pedrana playfully depicts a number of introduced species in soft pastel hued, nonrepresentational landscapes. In this way, Gill explores the fragility of the rugged Australian country. Gill starts her works with a red coat of paint. Then, once the piece is finished, she draws into the completed wet painting to reveal a red line. These lines symbolise the extremes of passion, energy and primal forces; perhaps a warning about the upset to the fragility of our ecosystem. This unique, signature technique imbues Gill’s work with drama and intrigue.

Gill Pedrana, Come in Deer. Oil on canvas, framed, 60 x 50cm.
