The video of our opening of our current exhibition, Helen S. Tiernan: Storied Country is now available to view on our website with acknowledgement of country by Helen Tiernan; an insightful discussion of the paintings by Dr Marie Geissler and official opening by Steve Dimopoulos MP. The exhibition of paintings is showing until 18 November 2022.
Helen can be described as a visual cultural historian who acknowledges her cross-cultural heritage (Irish and Indigenous) and who brings a sense of indigenous presence to her work with both nuance and complexity. Through her atmospheric landscapes painted with great technical skill, Helen highlights difficult and serious issues with a subtlety, gentleness and humour. Her oevure bears the influence of Australian art history and numerous literary sources including Bill Gammage, Bruce Pascoe, Lynne Kelley and Ian McLean.
