Quixotic and Exotic - Art Exhibition - Michael Reid Gallery

Denise Faulkner
Quixotic and Exotic

25 Mar - 17 Apr 2021

We are pleased to be presenting a new exhibition of works from Denise Faulkner, ‘Quixotic and Exotic’. Denise’s breath-taking watercolour paintings capture the attention of her audience with their detail and the true sense of life they capture. After moving from inner-city Sydney to Mudgee in recent years, Denise has become fascinated with the different species of birds and wildlife she comes into contact with. This fascination, or indeed mesmerisation, inspires her work greatly. What began as a documentation of local species, has now developed into a playful exploration of the inquisitive personalities of Australia’s native birds. The bold flash of red from a visiting rosella or a dancing flutter of a willy wag tail are the fleeting moments Faulkner seeks out like a radar, documenting the imperceptible tonal changes of nature embodied in their feathers or fur, petals or leaves. To revel in their beauty longer, she invites them to stay and share a cuppa.
