Sue Helmot’s next solo show ‘Frontier of Food’ will showcase Sue’s new collection of paintings inspired by food production in the Gascoyne landscape. “When you look at the landscape in the Gascoyne, it’s hard to conceive that it has the capacity to grow fruit and vegetables and graze livestock. I see it as being unique as the environment where the dry delta and baking sun bely the region’s secret power: it’s a frontier of food that demonstrates perseverance, initiative and innovation in order to succeed against the odds. The raw beauty of landscape itself plays an equality large part in my work. The Gascoyne has a wild energy that’s difficult to describe in words but readily expressed through my art.” Sue Helmot
‘Frontier of Food’, opens on the 9th of August and runs until the 23rd of August at the Carnarvon Regional Gallery/Library as part of the 2019 Gascoyne Food Festival.
