Kangaroo Valley River Bend II, Oil on Linen 2023


This original artwork is a part of Tracing Change, a group exhibition showcasing the work of artists from the Modern Times community and beyond. Tracing Change invites both artists and audience to trace back through thoughts and experiences, and experience a gratitude or curiosity for the ability to grow, transmute and transform.

“These two artworks came from an artist residency in the glorious Kangaroo Valley. 2023 brought a lot of personal change, alien experiences and newness to my life. Adopting borrowed and appropriated techniques of the painting language. These works pay homage to this special place, rebirth, new beginnings and the historical act of mark making and re-presentation of painting on Country. They are alien and like their maker represent a moment in time, a hopeful future and a complex past," says Lewis.

About the Artist

Kate Lewis

Melbourne-based artist Kate McKenzie Lewis’ work is steeped in the Australian landscape. In 2022, Lewis achieved a Masters in Contemporary Art from the VCA, University of Melbourne. Since graduation she has continued her journeys into the Australian bush, painting smaller ‘en plein air’ works, as well as larger ‘alla prima’ (in one sitting) pieces back in her Melbourne studio - forever blurring lines between fiction and reality. Lewis’s manipulation of perspective, light, colour and scale, piques the viewers curiosity creating an oscillation between imagined moments and real memory. Lewis's work is transportive; the country she depicts both stirs and subverts the viewer's memory.
