The Culprit Club is proud to announce, BUSH FABLES – a solo exhibition of new works by Brisbane-based artist and illustrator, COURTNEY BRIMS.
Brims' latest collection of work draws attention to Australia’s vanishing flora and fauna species by blending themes of May Gibbs' and Norman Lindsay's nostalgic bush fairytales with the haunting eeriness of Australian’s iconic mystery novel, Picnic at Hanging Rock.
This illustrative series reflects the vulnerability of nature, but also her determination to endure mankind’s attempts to tame, confine and control her creations.
Inspired by the beauty of the Australian landscape, these new works serve to promote appreciation and awareness of our unique biodiversity, whileexploring ideas of destruction, displacement, rebirth, and the delicate connectedness of nature.
Every species of plant and animal depicted throughout this series are native only to Australia, and can be found no where else on Earth.
The incredibly intricate pencil drawings of Courtney Brims' bleeds her creative curiosity and connection to the natural world.
Her works wisely whisper the dichotomies shared between prey and predator.
$10 from every 'Dusky Hopping Mice' print sold will be donated to Bush Heritage, a non-profit conservation organisation working to protect Australia’s native fauna and flora.
LAUNCH NIGHT: Friday June 09, 6pm
