Passages – Exhibition by Cate Blackmore

Passage: a journey by sea or air; a privilege of conveyance as a passenger.

European history records Abel Tasman’s expedition of 1642, seeking the Great South Land. From that point in time, how many men, women and children have had passage along Tasmania’s coast; seen the granite, the sandstone and the dolerite from the sea, looking in. How many convicts, settlers, officers, merchants and now tourists have gazed upon the painted rocks, the luscious turquoise water and pristine white sand of land’s edge. How welcome was landfall…

(A tribute to the many passengers seeking to find a home in Australia.)

Refuge : exhibition of paintings by Cate Blackmore

The painted work of Cate Blackmore is raw yet intricate; wild yet subtle, abstracted yet illustrative. Refuge catches the shifting moods of a primeval and largely un-trodden Tasmanian mountain landscape. Multidimensional textured colour, the fall of light on hillside and crag and the flow of a dynamic geology evoke a place of untamed life that needs no human rationalization.
