Ondine Seabrook in her own words.

"I am a Sydney based painter, recently represented by China Heights gallery and I graduated from The National Art school in 2017.

My work swings between being a response to place and a reaction to materials, depending on what stage I am at in my very process driven practice. Although usually inspired by the Australian landscape, with my last major experience being a road trip through the western American desert, naturally my recent work is informed by that. When I start painting in the studio I find my last major experience with the landscape or a place always filters through somehow. Sometimes even unintentionally, especially with the colours I start mixing up.

Typically my work is a play between abstraction and representation. My recent paintings are a representation of interesting little clusters of land features throughout the western American desert. Simultaneously, in a more abstract aesthetic sense they are equally concerned with playing around with composition, layering and shapes".

Ondine Seabrook is currently exhibiting at Dungog Contemporary until the 19th of August. Full catalogue is on our Artists page.
