Medium Oil on Linen


Currently showing at ‘Divided Space’ Future Shelter Gallery & Store from Sat 8th—Sun 23rd MAY 2021.

This exhibition presents Jane Coffey’s recent series of oil paintings exploring boundaries found within the urban and natural environments of Perth. These artworks have all been created since COVID-19 restrictions that were imposed in March 2020. Jane was inspired by her daily walks through North Perth and local urban bushland in Inglewood. The exhibition is divided into two sections. One section features paintings inspired by the ever-changing boundaries of remnant Banksia and Tuart Woodlands still found within Perth’s metro area. As a contrast, urban boundaries are explored through three paintings inspired by the North Perth town centre that were completed as part of the City of Vincent COVID Arts Relief Project.

This particular Banksia menziesii is located in an area of local bushland near my home called the Inglewood Triangle. This bushland was often the destination of my daily walks during COVID-19 restrictions. The marking tape indicates it has been tested for dieback.
