Wattle in the time of Covid 19


3 Nov 2021 – 14 Nov 2021
'Escape' is an exhibition of collages and paintings that artist Kathy Fahey created during the long Lockdowns in Melbourne in 2020 and 2021. The exhibition is being held at Black Cat Gallery in Fitzroy, Melbourne.

‘Escape’ is a part of a series of work Kathy made during the Covid Lockdowns in Melbourne in 2020 and 2021. For Kathy painting and collaging the landscape became a form of escape from the sometimes distressing and very restricting situation we found ourselves in during this period. Many of the pieces in this exhibition are based on landscapes the artist enjoyed on the hundreds of walks undertaken during lockdown in local parks and remnant native bushland all within the mandatory five kilometres from home. It was a source of comfort and joy to watch this bushland change as the seasons rolled over again and again. Other pieces are based upon recollections of landscapes visited in better times. A time when we could escape the city and experience rural and bush settings miles from home and any thoughts of a pandemic.
