One Fine Day - Art Exhibition - Michael Reid Gallery

Lucy Vader
One Fine Day

12 Aug - 4 Sep 2021

Following eight months of rural travelling chased with uninterrupted work in her Lismore studio, Lucy Vader presents her most remarkable and ambitious collection of landscape paintings to date. Opening online today, One Fine Day is a benchmark exhibition for Lucy Vader. Composed exclusively of large scale and richly textured landscapes, this exhibition exemplifies Vader’s wonderful ability to marry energetic paint application with an overwhelming sense of calm.

Lucy Vader spends a large portion of her year travelling regional Australia in pursuit of artistic inspiration. Excursions to Springfield in Young NSW, Millers Creek of the Merriwa Ranges and mini-residencies on the sheep farms of friends all supply Vader with creative fuel for her paintings. Vader’s travels and continual pursuit of the perfect landscape sees her work remain unmatched in its authenticity.

Vader’s eye is attuned to rural landscape in a way that only lived experience can bestow. In her paintings, the shapes of trees endemic to particular climates and regions are brought to us by immeasurable knowledge. Drifting clouds and promises of rain, azure blue heavens and patterns made by cattle and sheep are all made lively through her gestural but considered layers of paint.
