JOIN US FOR THE OPENING OF ALANA GUNN'S EXHIBITION 'NATURAL HABITAT'
WEDNESDAY 17TH MARCH 2021 ~ 5PM - 7PM
MUSIC PROVIDED BY SOLOMAN AND THE SEA
Inspired by the intuitive process of abstraction and groundedness of self, Alana Gunn’s new collection, NATURAL HABITAT evokes a calming nature with layers of depth and mystery. Textural markings coincide with an earthy natural palette in dreamlike movement.
These forms are reflective of the artist's state of mind of stillness, trust and alignment in hope of what 2021 will bring. An intensity soaks its way across the artworks, opening up a doorway for conversation.
Working her way in a soft gestural and meditative approach, the artist layers mediums of clay plaster, earth pigments, sand and acrylics. All artworks are framed in natural Tassie Oak.
Our NATURAL HABITAT is the internal home we create for ourselves.

“My artworks are shaped by a diarist approach and an inquiry into the human psyche. Centred around personal growth of the spiritual self, subjects of light and dark flow through my works. The flowers in my work represent a bridge between the natural world and human life and the idea that we all have an internal garden that we must continuously nourish. In my paintings, I depict whimsical and ethereal figures, with elements of naivety which reinforces the idea of finding the true beauty in the imperfect.”
Raised in Beechmont, a sub-tropical town in the hinterland of the Gold Coast, artist Brian Connolly has long held onto the natural roots of his upbringing. Connolly completed a Bachelor of Creative Industries and major in Visual Arts in 2007. After relocating to Melbourne, the artist has gained media exposure through mural collaborations with the acclaimed hair and beauty Salon Edwards & Co. Connolly has since propelled his successes through prestigious gallery representation, exhibitions and a constant flow of commissions including a long list of mural works for varied businesses. Now residing in Byron Bay, the artists bold and often whimsical works seek to bridge a link between nature and human life with the common thread of botanicals symbolizing personal development and the process of flowering.
