In this exhibition, Geelong artist and textile designer Maryla Johns explores a new perspective of ‘surf art’. Incorporating both digital and painterly techniques, Johns depicts the beauty to be found in humble seaweed, with pops of colour and abstracted forms. A self confessed ‘seaweed biographer’, Johns uses layers, patterns and textures from the coastal landscape as both inspiration and artistic content. Surf Garden is a beautiful expression of the artist’s love and respect for the natural world.
Exhibition 17 July – 2 August (opening Friday 18 July 5:30 – 8 pm)
