Grassland: Yvonne Mills-Stanley

Breadcrumbs

18 February–29 March

Yvonne Mills-Stanley is a well-known Queensland artist who has been painting since the mid 1960’s. In the last few years her work has focused on the spirituality of grass inspired by the drought-ravaged but former grasslands areas of western Queensland. Living in coastal Queensland, we are not witness to the ‘big dry’ and Mills-Stanley explores the changes brought on by human intervention and climate change, painting the sculptural effects of wind in grass and taking a less literal, more abstract look at the grasslands. More recently her work looks at our own “back paddock” with stacked hay bales eerily poised and barely balancing, a further comment on the changing landscape.
