Patsy Hely works predominately in the ceramic medium but with a more recent engagement in watercolour and oil painting. The work for this exhibition encompasses all three and represents an attempt to think through the past year or so with its constraints but also walks in local ACT bush – Black Mountain, Mount Majura and Mount Ainslie.
Her work is in the collections of NGA and state and regional galleries and private collection.
The exhibition will be opened by Toni Warburton on April 11 and continues until May 23.

Bradley says: “This body of work explores the idea that we are all, from time to time, weathering a storm of some kind - either with or without grace.
“Abstracted forms imply cloud shapes and elements of the weather –wind, rain and storms and embody ideas of resilience and resistance.
“The “skyscape” is abstracted and reduced to compositions of directional lines and contrasting organic and geometric shapes applied to gouache wash backgrounds. The simplified images echo basic structures in the land and sky. The use of the compositional elements of the arc or semicircle, direct the eye and help to build the forms of cumulonimbus clouds.“
