'Home Territory' Marie Lunney

Inspired by the surrounding landscapes of Scone,
Wingen and the Barrington Tops, Upper Hunter artist
Marie Lunney uses direct observation to capture her
Home Territory. Marie’s skill and ability to draw out the
beauty from within diverse environments has garnered
her much respect and admiration, working across the
mediums of charcoal, printmaking, and oils.

Marie’s rough, preparatory charcoal sketches are transformed in oil on canvas - quiet landscapes depicting rural life, with subtle variations in colour and shape inviting the viewer to immerse themselves within the scene.

   

Examining each site at ground level, Marie’s drawings of simple weeds and grasses are translated into etchings on aluminium plates, printed using the intaglio method, illuminating the unique aesthetic qualities as observed by the artist.

Marie Lunney’s Home Territory invites us to pause, to meditate and to experience the gentle allure of the Upper Hunter Region.
