Dusk, Tammy Warner
The artworks express the experimental diversity of media and the rhythmic exchange between land and water. They represent intimate observations of the natural world; some are depicted because they are under threat of extinction and others for their intriguing connection with habitat.

Dowd's works reflect and are imbued with her extensive travels to Western Australia, Broome, Kimberley Region, the Daintree, Cape Tribulation also a recent trip to Cape York Peninsula. The magnitude and stillness of these areas has influenced the way the works are approached. The compositions reflect an acute insight and awareness of her surrounds. There is an intimacy conveyed in these immersive compositions of landscapes mostly unseen, often unappreciated. Dowd immerses herself in the imagery, making these remote landscapes poignant and real to her audience.

Warner's inspiration lies in her immediate coastal environment on the Mornington Peninsula. The strength and vastness of the sea, the estuaries and the sky, form a visual contrast for the works that depict the more fragile nature of the local fauna and flora.

Warner explores the creative area between the intentional and the incidental in her paintings. Working instinctively with her medium letting happy accidents happen and then focusing in on the work drawing out more nuanced elements of life and nature.
