In her first Southern Highlands exhibition, Mudgee based watercolourist Denise Faulkner has pushed her practice to new heights. Comprised of twelve new watercolour works, From Little Things sees Faulkner demonstrate her marvellous technical skill and thoughtful treatment of the mini narratives she is renowned for.
From Prussian and French ultramarine blues to ruby and crimson reds, Faulkner’s vivacious watercolours dazzle the eyes. From Little Things sees the artist play with scale, both in the size of her paintings and with her subjects. Faulkner embellishes large birds like peacocks atop tiny trees, such as bonsais. Each work exploring a narrative imagined by the artist and later solidified on paper.
