Overview

Fine Art Kangaroo Island presents the culmination of more than a decade's art practice by artist Caroline Taylor in a fascinating solo exhibition of painting and hand-coloured historic photographs.

The north coast of Kangaroo Island has been central to Caroline's practice for many years with a considerable body of work produced on subjects such as settlement history, the landscape, fire, men of the land, and where the land meets the sea.

On show are paintings in the distinctive styles for which she has become known and new editions of the ground breaking work created over two years for Island to Inland touring exhibition.

All works are powerfully linked by the observer’s love of the landscape, wild-life and history of Kangaroo Island.

Two large hand-coloured photographs are from original black & white photographs taken during a fortnight's expedition of Ornithologists to Snellings Beach in 1905 .

The exhibition will run until 25 January 2019.

Everyone is welcome to the launch, Friday 7 December at 5:15,
to be opened by celebrated author and photographer Quentin Chester with a jazz performance from Island singer Priscilla Thomas.

Meet the artist opportunities, and private viewings available in January. RSVP to Fine Art KI Gallery curator.
