About the work:
Rush, Original Artwork by Stacey Rees.
This piece is part of Chromatic Retreat, a group exhibition showcasing the work of 17 Australian artists exploring their practice within the limits of a largely achromatic palette.
“Normally I really embrace working with colour, however with this body of work, I’ve found it surprisingly rewarding interpreting this almost restricted theme. I’ve been able to explore the challenges of limiting the process of painting in black and white. This ‘restriction’ has forced my focus on light and shadow making the pieces become more moody in a simplified way. Focusing on day and night, shadow and depth and the overall contrasting elements,” Rees says.
About the Artist:
Fascinated by people, Stacey Rees continues her exploration of notions surrounding identity and the way we present ourselves. Her work looks beyond a person’s physical characteristics and speculates on their inner self. Stacey reflects on the smartphone phenomenon in contemporary society, in an avant-garde style that draws on features of people from magazines, as well as from her own reflection.
