The A’dale and Beyond

Friday, 28 April – Sunday, 18 June.

Jackie Gorring

Jackie Gorring’s practice draws on two distinct influences. The comings and goings of life in the rural district of Allendale, her home, affectionately referred to by Gorring as A’dale, and the travels “beyond”, throughout Australia and internationally.

“To the outsider A’dale could appear to be a place where very little happens. For me it is vibrant and rich. I walk and observe the small, the bizarre, the beautiful, the simple, flora and fauna, farm machinery, neighbours, their habits and rituals. Beyond A’Dale I gather information for art making from travels, watching myself and placing “me” in real happenings and situations that are usually poking fun at myself.”

Jackie Gorring has long been an advocate for the use of unconventional and recycled materials in both printmaking and sculpture, which can be seen in these humorous and warm stories from Asia, India, Italy and A’dale.
