The Memory Garden
Anna Stichbury’s latest exhibition is an invitation to engage with sheer and unabridged joy. Operating through a delicate balance of gesture and structure, Stichbury’s paintings are vibrant, uplifting immersions into her expressive vision of the natural world.
Historically, Stichbury has worked with a primary concept or theme for her exhibitions, exploring notions of familiarity, discovery, perception, and memory. In this latest body of work, the Wellington-based artist is introspective, with a series of new paintings and installations that offer an eclectic view into a timeline of devotion to playful exploration of colour and abstraction. The thread uniting these current works is sheer joy; a homage to the euphoric blooms, the textured skies, the azure oceans, the golden glow of life that captures our senses.
