Opening speech by Dr. Jessica Priebe, Art Historian.
In Subconscious Landscapes, Danish-born artist Gitte Backhausen explores the artistic potential of the subconscious mind and the freedom associated with working just below the point of focal awareness. Influenced by the dreamlike landscapes of the Surrealists, along with the painterly abstractions of artists such as Cy Twombly and Elizabeth Cummings, this exhibition presents a collection of new worlds that draws inspiration from the natural environment. Gitte’s bold and assertive brushwork harnesses the spontaneity of subconscious mark making. Colours, twisting forms and expansive compositions radiate with the energy of unique arboreal-inspired ecosystems and provide the spectator with an opportunity for both contemplation and adventure into new lands.
