Gentle Hunter by Rachel Stone

I was intrigued by the exhibition of works on paper by Rachel Stone, at the Tweed River Art Gallery. More evidence that illustration and graphic design are entering the world of exhibited art. Different to the work of well know illustrator-style artists Kirra Jamieson and Kathryn Del Barton; Stone has a confident line, not unlike that of a colouring-in book. Her works tell stories which the titles helpfully hint at. Her delightful illustrations have been cut out and collaged as highlights in these stark compositions of slabs of matt colour and tiny decorative details.
The above invite shows the image of my favourite one. But there are a lot more works by Stone to see.
The end.

Also available at the gallery are:
Sandstone sheep
and good food and drink, namely
Wort Organic drinks.
Its currently too hot for coffee.
