Carly Le Cerf – New Works
Paintings of the Pilbara presents a collection of works inspired by Carly’s recent art residency in the Pilbara where she painted the landscape through spontaneous uses of texture, carvings into wax and layerings of paint pigment.
It is no surprise Carly found deep inspiration in this rich landscape as it is known for its ancient indigenous histories; its vast mineral deposits; burnt red earth and dusty pink skies.
Her inspirations have resulted in seductive landscapes composed through spontaneous uses of texture, carvings into wax and layerings of paint pigment.
Carly’s landscapes evoke memory and emotion of a land that lives in a natural duality: the Pilbara is both an arid and tropical climate, home to red rocky gorges and cool plunge pools. What results is a seductive and tactile depiction of this unique landscape.
Carly Le Cerf is a landscape painter based in the Mount Barker, Western Australia. She completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts (Painting) at Edith Cowan University, Perth in 2000. Carly’s works draw from a deep emotional response to the landscape around her and the tonalities of the land during the passages of changing weather and time, like the early morning light and dusk.
