Allison Rummery

Life, 2021

40 × 40 cm
The third in a series of circular paintings using oil on Birchwood. The subject is a tiny cluster of Banksia leaves in a nook beside the road near a beach. They are weathered with age and dots of golden erosion have patterned their underside. The butterfly harkens to old botanical illustrations which I’ve always admired and also adds lightness and wonderment and alludes to transience.
Allison Rummery works from her studio on the Northern Beaches of Sydney. Her reverence and appreciation for the ancient bushland and sublime coastline fuels a sense of wonder and endless curiosity for natures untold patterns and cycles. She explores the physicality of the landscape and then consciously creates moments of stillness in her paintings, responding to the subtleties of nature as it transforms and transcends. Her work is an emotional response to both the profound exquisiteness and fragility of life. Allison studied painting at Sydney College of the Arts. She has exhibited in many group shows, was a finalist in the Sir John Sulman Prize and also the Mosman Art Prize a number of times. Her work is held in private collections in Australia and overseas.
