PLAN YOUR VISIT - Discover mythological narratives and stories of migration with new exhibition Land & Sea (2 March - 16 June 2024)


Collecting narratives | Tai Snaith

I was very inspired by the collection tour with Jen [Jennifer Thompson, Collections Manager], especially Doris and merric’s pottery, a lot of drawings of pots and jugs grew from that and the walk around the homestead collection.

I spent a long time walking each day in the bush and thought a lot about the narratives found and hidden in the landscape.

While I was here I also conducted 8 zooms with other female painters and discussed the tensions in painting such as freedom vs containment, loose vs tight, wild vs domestic, etc.

I spent one day by the river drawing fish and their shadows and dragonflies.

A lot of the work I made is exploring narrative and what compels us to paint an image on a canvas or a pot, to record it in history.

It has been a hugely generative and inspiring time and I really hope I get to return again in the future.
