Freya Tripp

Presented by Araluen Arts Centre

Spaces - Places – Possessions have the power to haunt us, individually and collectively, to haunt the social imaginary and our individual psyche.

Spaces – Places – Possessions is a body of work by painter Freya Tripp, informed by her experiences in Central Australia over the past decade. Tripp carries with her many questions about her relationship to this country, about belonging, home, identity, and through painting explores the disturbing encounters with forms of otherness that challenge attempts at categorical meaning or any sense of stability. Capturing this complexity, Tripp employs and manipulates strong traditions of still life, botanical art, the decorative, scale and motif, as well as scanography. These visual references and processes are interwoven with conceptual threads of the Australian Gothic, liminality, and the sublime, creating imagery that reflects the ambiguousness and disorientation of experience. These works operate not as the focal point themselves, but as lenses to look ‘through’.
