The Noosa Everglades Comes to Town

Artist Béatrice Prost

Béatrice spends much of her time kayaking through the tranquil waters of the Noosa Everglades – her muse and inspiration for this current series of Work!

Artist Statement –

I see this show as the continuation, the overflow of my January show ‘Watermarks up the Noosa River’. I want to dive in, to take the plunge and penetrate the ‘River of Mirrors’ surface. I am in search of the hidden underworld of those tranquil dark lakes and wetland. What lies beneath? What is under the black reflective tannin plane? What secret lies below those mysterious calm black waters? Is it a one way mirror? And if so, which side are we who are breathing air? In front or behind?

“L’autre côté du miroir” est la continuation et le développement de mon exposition précédente « Watermarks up the Noosa River». Je veux plonger, m’élancer plus profond encore et pénétrer la surface de cette « Rivière aux Miroirs » comme on l’appelle ici.  Je pars à la recherche de ce monde caché en dessous des obscurs  lacs cristallins  et des cours d’eau tranquilles des Everglades.  Qu’y–a-t-il sous leur surface noire et réflective chargée de tanins ? Quels secrets se cachent au fond de ces eaux calmes et sombres? Est-ce un miroir sans tain ? Et si oui, de quel côté sommes nous nous qui respirons l’air ?

Technique

Digital but handmade, her original hand carved large works on paper connect her digital world to a more traditional hand crafted mark making process. Through incised dots and linear scars, she intuitively free hand “draws” white organic patterns that connect to the environment.

Béatrice also works with abstracted topographies of organic and mineral presence. She paints with inks, natural pigments and oxides powders to symbolise the elements of our Earth and Universe. From high above to down below, our Planet is her magical inspiration whether working on paper, canvas or aluminium.
