“Kosciuszko: An Abstract Sublime”

Opening: Thursday 20 July, 5-8pm

Exhibition Dates: 19 – 29 July 2023

Kosciuszko is a recurring subject in Street’s work and finding a new way of interpreting this unique alpine landscape is central to this new series of abstract paintings. These works embody the physical, emotional and sensory experience of being in the landscape rather than depictions of an actual scene.

By focusing on the expressive potential of abstraction, Street’s paintings invite viewers to confront the mysterious and evoke a heightened state of contemplation and wonder.

Street explains: “I use marks, colour and layering to evoke not only a particular place but how I felt in that landscape. To create an abstract impression that evokes the emotions and sensory experiences that I had when I was in the landscape.”

“Keep your feet on the ground and your thoughts at lofty heights”

Opening: Saturday 1 October 2022, 3-5pm

Exhibition Dates: 1 October – 16 October 2022


These new paintings centre around two alpine areas of Australia; Mount Kosciuszko NSW and Mount Wellington TAS. 

The alpine landscape is a recurring theme for Street. The artist is drawn not only to it’s sense of calm, beauty and awe, but also it’s loneliness and isolation- shifting and unstable. Through this landscape the artist pushes and pulls between representation and abstraction, using the pieces to explore her own personal desires, longing, loss, frustrations and guilt.

“Rhythms of the Monaro: The Kelton Plain Artist Residency”

Elisabeth Cummings, David Collins, Sally Stokes,
Leah Thiessen, Belinda Street

5 February to 1 March, 2022

Wagner Contemporary
2 Hampden Street, Paddington NSW

The Haslingden Family established the Kelton Plain Artist Residency in 2012. Since then many artists have stayed at the family home in the beautiful 1890’s homestead and have enjoyed painting en plein air in the surrounding farmland amidst the inspiring landscape of the Monaro. On the traditional land of the Ngarigo People, ‘Monaro’ literally means high plateau or high plain. The property still operates as a commercial cattle and sheep farm and spans over 3500 acres.

The life of the artist is typically one of solitude, so there is something special when artists come together on an art residency. The talk, the sharing, the eating. The experience of place, the light, sun, rain, and changing temperatures. Being together, but working apart. A time out of time. Connection – to each other, to the landscape.

Artists David Collins, Elisabeth Cummings, Sally Stokes, Belinda Street and Leah Thiessen were invited to spend a week at the Kelton Plain Property in May 2021.

The artists venture into the landscape each day to make sense of its vast grassy plains, granite rocks, twisted eucalypts and vast skies, all under the shadow of ‘The Snowies’. To sit in the landscape, be in the moment, alert and attentive. What speaks to each artist is different and through their individual creative processes they attempt to merge the physical with the emotional. As each day unfolds they take on this harsh yet beautiful environment using pencil, charcoal, pen, and paint, striving to capture the essence of the Monaro Plain.

“Rhythms of the Monaro” is the result of each artists time spent at the residency and the memories interpreted back in their respective studios. En plein air studies and studio developed paintings, this exhibition reveals the artists individual visions and memories of this beautiful, rugged, wind swept plain.

This polyptych was created after a trip to Central Australia. I was fascinated by the birdlife and was inspired to create a series of all the parrots found in the area in which I travelled – from top left: Major Mitchells Cockatoo, Budgerigar, Princess Parrot, Night Parrot, Cockatiel, Little Corella, Mulga Parrot, Bourkes Parrot, Australian Ringneck, Black Cockatoo, Galah, and Scarlet Chested Parrot.
