Double Vision brings together the inspiring works of two very different artists – yet is also a celebration of powerfully shared themes.
For both artists, the exploration of pattern and structure in the natural environment is a key element. Stubbles’ richly tactile, yet painterly, abstracted landscapes and Morecroft’s seductively detailed photographs are an intriguing combination.
Tanya Stubbles’ art practice began in 2006 and she remains seriously committed to her art, exhibiting in group and solo exhibitions in Wollongong, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Alice Springs and China. She completed two residencies at Arthur Boyd’s Bundanon, was a 2008 Wynne Prize finalist and won the 2012 Wollongong City Art Prize.
Tanya is a highly intuitive artist pushing the boundaries, exploring new ideas, processes and materials and creating unique personal perspectives of the world around her. The connection between objects and memory is no coincidence. She intentionally uses sentimental or nostalgic materials to trigger the subconscious using all manner of natural and found ephemera assembled into abstract wall pieces or installations.
