Femme Fructueses: Fruitful Woman
Femme Fructueuses: Fruitful Woman is a photo series that distorts the female form in grotesque yet beautiful ways. The work invites viewers to question the subject and in turn their own immediate sexualisation of womanhood and femininity.
Hart Island Dreams

The exhibition culminates in an installation that features over 150 miniature clay cranes that represent the individuals buried on the island in context of a river to symbolise the paths their lives took.

Astral Projections of Earthly Delights
The stories of place and the process of making layer on layers with traces left behind from where the peels come from are then captured in thick wet malleable resins and pigments, fibreglass and substrata to become a reimagined peeling back of the surface to reveal what remains. The peelings play with chance, surprise and the unknown. What sets into the wet materials becomes part of the artwork and the applied materials are intuitively selected, guided by curiosity and the desire to capture space, and reveal form.
This exhibition coincides with the launch of my graphic novel, Still
Alive, which records my experiences of volunteering with people of an
asylum seeker or refugee background in the Villawood Detention
Centre and in studios around Western Sydney and the Inner West
over the last ten years.
Luminous Landscapes evokes a moment for reflection. Renae's compositions are framed in order to direct your view around the canvas to emphasise particular elements in nature, such as the flickering light off water or the changing colours in the sky.
Reflections, geometry and divergences feature in each work, highlighting a paradox in nature: growth favouring the efficiency of patterns but with potentially infinite natural variations - embodying the clash between order and chaos.
Wednesday’s Watercolourists is a group of artists who meet every
Wednesday and have done so for the last 6 or more years to explore and
participate in their passion for watercolour painting, learning from and
enjoying each other’s talents and company.
