Dusty Road 2021, is an imaginary landscape drawn from the environment of my home, a rural property surrounded by the Australian bush, and the drive I take to a near by mountain range. The sepia tones, evoke a sense of memory, a dreaming and the mystic, something I call upon often when playing with paint in my studio.
Working out of a sustainable, off-grid studio on the Mid North Coast of NSW, Mim Fluhrer is an abstract painter whose work is heavily influenced by her natural environment. Fluhrer’s paintings often utilise vibrant and earthy tones, whilst experimenting with compositional structure. The play between organic forms and repeated mark-making is another key characteristic of the artist’s paintings. Fluhrer explores ideas of ritual in her mark-making, with the intention of making her work a place for audiences to quieten and connect.
She has exhibited in a number of group and solo shows. Additionally, in 2009, Fluhrer completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts, majoring in Painting, from the National Art School (NAS).
