Mallee Birds

23 March – 6 May 2018.

Paul Oswin

Paul Oswin has a passion for the plants, animals and landscape of the Mallee region.

This exhibition of birdlife uses expressive marks and bold colours to capture the bird’s physical likeness, character and the impression of its environment.

His approach shares similar philosophies to sumi-e painting. Sumi-e painting is a Japanese style of monochromatic painting using ink, brush and paper that aims to depict the spirit of the subject, rather than a detailed resemblance of it. In his current works, Paul has adopted some of these ideas and combined them with expressive use of watercolour and coloured inks.
