This is a major solo exhibition of 35 paintings and prints by Queensland based artist Kelli McGregor. The impact of relocating from 30 years in the Top End to her newfound environs of the Fraser Coast has led McGregor to this strong series. The location has immersed the artist in the concept of ‘sugar’, the towering cane farms of this rural community, along with an intriguing and confronting history. The result is a site-specific series captured by artist Kelli McGregor through unique, deft brushstrokes harnessing the emotions of heartache, upheaval and perseverance. McGregor also presents other contemporary works.
