Overview

This exhibition will present a new body of work by contemporary painter Valda Johnson, depicting scenes from the Murray River and focusing on the patterns and shapes that emerge from the landscape.

Valda made multiple visits to the river in 2023, exploring the differences in landscape and seasons between the Murray from Mildura near Tintaldra, NSW, down to Yarrawonga in Victoria.

Working en plain air, Valda made drawings and sketches before returning to the studio to complete a new series in oils and gouache.
