For the month of December, Bremerton is showcasing the works of Helen Stacey 'Heartland'.
Heartland was first shown at Hughes Gallery, Fullarton Community Centre, Adelaide, in July and now tours to Bremerton Wines, to the region that inspired the art works.
Helen Stacey lives in Strathalbyn where she has a gallery and studio. Her studio practice involves realist-expressive representations of the land, its layered meanings of myth, spirituality and issues of reconciliation, deploying a variety of mediums. For example her 2007 solo exhibition, Negotiating Boundaries was shown at the Royal South Australian Society of Arts and involved painting, assemblage and installation, exploring the gate as a metaphor for colonisation and spirituality in the Alexandrina Lakes region. This exhibition toured to four South Australian regional galleries.
In Heartland the series The Gift-bringers investigates cultural diversity in the region, while the large Mt. Barker from Point Sturt Road and other works celebrate the local landscape.
