Impressionism at Bundanon

Kari Henriksen’s new exhibition opened yesterday at Collingwood’s Catherine Asquith Gallery. Kari is a painter who now paints photographs. Working with pigment inkjet prints of her photographs, she adds a watercolour effect that dissolves and softens their sharper details. It gives them a painterly look, somewhere between the two mediums of photography and painting.

The work is the result of a residency at Bundanon, the rural property in New South Wales gifted to the state by Arthur Boyd.  Kari wanted to capture “the changes in light, and the atmospheric affects of weather” and “the ‘writing’ produced by tidal detritus.”
