Congratulations Robyn Sweaney, 2017 Wynne Prize Finalist

Robyn Sweaney has been announced a Finalist in the 2017 Wynne Prize at the Art Gallery of New South Wales.

"Time and tide is from a series of paintings that I am currently working on about the Australian coastal landscape. These paintings are about time past and the promise of slowing down in the future; the anticipation, contemplation, sunlight and shadows, still salt air and silent static moments.

Approaching the landscape as a living vessel of memory, the work considers how certain places conjure images from the past, tempered with the transient shadow of the present. They express personal embedded ideas about my own experiences of place and of those that have been here before.” Artist Statement: Robyn Sweaney, 2017
