Fresh from her Australia Council career development grant travels, Northern Beaches based, multi-disciplinary artist Shoufay Derz has built on her significant body of work focused on landscape, poetry and the ‘unknown’.

From the Badlands of the USA to the Chalk Cliffs of Rügen Germany, she has explored monumental eroded landscapes to generate what she calls ‘luminous voids,’ a visual poetry of the unknown.

By reflecting upon on the ongoing presence of the past in the now, this new work asks us to contemplate intimacies of the unknown and the ruptures between our experience and knowledge of the world.

You are invited to the exhibition opening on Fri 6 April 2018, 6 – 8pm 
To be opened by Dr Andrew Frost, art critic, lecturer and broadcaster

Artist Talk:  Sun 20 May, 3 – 4pm
Join Shoufay Derz for afternoon tea and a walk through her exhibition as she discusses the development of her ideas and work.
