Little Sugar by Karen Bloomfield, 40x40cm, charcoal & ink on archival paper.
Co-habitation, a collaboration between artists Sandra Millard & Karen Bloomfield, examines the urbanisation of native animals. The modern dynamic between the human environment and the natural world is explored through 2 dimensional fauna in charcoal, ink & oil and 3d representational habitat forms in a variety of natural and unexpected materials. The success of the exhibition lies in the dichotomy of the artists methods of exploration. Millard takes us into a whimsical world of colour, texture and real or imagined habitats. In contrast, Bloomfields’ life-like animals engage us, drawing us into their space, daring us to investigate them and their habitats further. 

Coupled with Australian bush sounds and an unorthodox presentation that invites the viewer to participate rather than just ‘view’, Cohabitation is engaging. Well worth a look, this FREE exhibition of affordable art runs at the Palm House Gallery in the NSW Botanic Gardens from March 8-20. 

A percentage of sales benefit WIRES and the NSW CEO, Leanne Taylor, will help open the exhibition at the launch Sunday, March 8 (2pm-4pm). All welcome to attend this free event.
