Watercolour, the medium of the amateur, the traveller and the British is reinvented in the contemporary landscapes of Phillip Edwards and Alexandra Sasse

Bringing together the motifs of suburbia and state forest, this exhibition contrasts the urban landscapes of Sasse with the natural world of Edwards. Phillip Edwards, winner of the Trustees Watercolour Prize at the Wynne Landscape Award, 2018, presents haunting, ethereal images that echo the sentiment of early Australian landscape artists who infused a sense of melancholy with the sublime. In contrast, Alexandra Sasse’s suburban motifs find poetry in the pragmatic, built environment. Sasse is a recent finalist in two of Australia’s most prestigious landscape awards, the John Leslie Art Prize and the Lloyd Rees Art Prize.
