About

About the Artist: Unexpected myriads sprout in the dancing leaves and branches of Nat Ward’s wetlands paintings. Their rich surfaces reference “mosaics, textiles, hieroglyphics even Asian script.” Based in Albury, Ward says her paintings are ‘an intimate conversation between herself and the places she walks’ yet they are, obviously, more sophisticated and inventive than that. Using flattened space, folkloric detail, linear depth and a whimsical energised palette, her compositions take the landscape in every direction: up, down and across. "My paintings are based on the interesting and often secret narrative of regional Australia's inland waterways. My intent is for the viewer to firstly see a deconstructed landscape as a cohesive whole then to be drawn in closer to notice the nuanced layers, signatures and details. I am drawn to the mosaics of colour, the whimsical scribbles of nature’s marks and the lacy reflections on the water. Without focusing on the literal and descriptive, the work subtly suggests and translates the story of the dynamic, evolving wetland environment.”
