Sue Meredith


Terry Wright

Terry Wright and Sue Meredith independently made their way to Sydney after meeting at art school in Cape Town.

Cape Town and Sydney are on the same latitude, half a world apart. Terry and Sue still carry the heartbeat of Africa with them while solidly connecting with their Australian home of 40 plus years. This rhythm resonates abstractly in Terry's ceramic forms and is expressed in Sue’s drawings and in the colour and vibrancy of her paintings.

This exhibition draws on the two artists’ experiences and memories and the links between the two cities, cultures and continents that have influenced them.

As an artist whose medium is clay, Terry’s works are a response to the landscape and the use of clay and ochres for body decoration within the indigenous cultures with whom she has worked, on both continents.

Sue’s paintings, drawings and collages are abstract in nature, embrace moments of time and of memory and are also often a response to landscape.

Sue lives and works in the Southern Highlands and teaches art at BDAS and Ku-ring-gai

Art Centre.

Exhibition opening Saturday 6 April at 2pm. The exhibition will be opened by artist Tony Ameneiro.

Everyone welcome!

People of all ages and stages in artmaking, from all areas of art practice, were encouraged to participate, through local press and social media promotions. The Blue Square Art Competition is all about inclusivity.
