Sons & Daughters
Trish Tait and Amelia Axford
9 April – 13 June
Sons & Daughters by Trish Tait and Meli Axford explores the transformative journey of motherhood as an artistic expression.
Sons by Trish Tait draws inspiration from daily life, which was enriched in 2020 when her sons returned home to ride out the uncertainty of lockdown. Sons is a painted record of this time, with observations of her adult brood, the everyday humdrum and their inevitable longing for a return to the old normal.
Meli Axford’s art reimagines the Australian landscape with her family in it. Daughters showcases works from her pool series which radiates a deliberate sense of calm and optimism that we are ready for whatever happens.
