Following a recent excursion to the Pilbara region, West Australian artist Carly Le Cerf will exhibit Big Country- Paintings of The Pilbara at NERAM this September in what will be the artists first major museum exhibition. Represented by Michael Reid Murrurundi, Carly Le Cerf is a rising artistic voice who has attracted significant attention for her subliminal portrayal of Australia’s diverse topography.
Works showing in Paintings of The Pilbara are alive with colour movement, mirroring the awesome spectacle of a land belonging to the Banjima people. Le Cerf’s employment of spontaneous texture, carving and layering of encaustic wax techniques capture the vast mineral deposits; burnt red earth and dusty pink skies of the Pilbara landscape with such clarity that only a lived experience could supply.
