Seasons of Life & Mountain - Exhibition

  Seventh sunrise 2018

Seventh sunrise 2018

Seasons of Life & Mountain: Phillip Edwards is an exhibition of recent work by
this Bullarto artist. The mainly large-scale watercolours give an insight into
Edward’s captivation with the majestic beauty of Mount Buffalo. From rocky
outcrops, monoliths and highland bogs to the quiet snow cover and the burst of
spring bloom, he captures the seasonal transitions of this central Victorian
jewel. As in life, his work depicts contrast, with the dead stands of snow gums
and the new growth since the wildfires in December 2006.
The exhibition features over 70 works born out of a series of seasonal hikes over
the last two years. Each work bears a poetic title which provides insight into the
artist’s contemplations on our greater connection to the natural world and the
spiritual nature of all living things. Full of the dynamism of the mostly
untouched mountain, his works imbue a palpable energy.

“With a vibrancy and immediacy in the paint application, my aim was to capture
the invisible and intangible energy of the mountain.” Phillip Edwards
Phillip Edwards was born in Gippsland and studied at the Victorian College of
the Arts. He had several solo exhibitions of sculpture and painting in his early
years and has recently reignited his passion and drive to create with a fresh
style, mature and unencumbered by ego.


Seasons of Life & Mountain opens at The Cosmopolitan Hotel, Trentham
from 4-6 pm on the 10th March and will run for three months.
