28 November 2011 | Kim Buck’s first solo exhibition with Jan Murphy Gallery in Brisbane has sold out prior to opening, according to gallery manager Nicole Roberts.

Landscapes is scheduled to run from 6 to 17 December 2011.

This latest body of work is inspired by her move from Mt Gambier in South Australia to the Blue Mountains in New South Wales. “We are simply a faster sandstone than these ancient mountains – deposited, compressed, uplifted and carried away all in a matter of years. Some mornings on the peaks I think about drawing, and wonder whether it is an attempt to slow this erosion,” she muses.

Although the exhibition has been inspired by nature, Buck has again concentrated on the human figure, as with her past three sell-out solo exhibitions. Buck graduated from the South Australian School of Art in 2009 and has earned a reputation for precise draughtsmanship and the realism of her charcoal drawings.
