Main Gallery


Lydia Bauman is both a landscape painter and an art historian fascinated by the phenomenon of the American artist, Georgia O'Keeffe and her idiosyncratic interpretations of the landscape of New Mexico. She works in a mixed media technique which involves combining pigments with plaster, resin, wax and other unconventional materials to create textured surfaces evocative of the look and feel of the landscapes that inspired her. For this exhibition she travelled to 'Georgia O’Keeffe Country' - Northern New Mexico desert which O’Keeffe referred to as her 'backyard', to re-interpret the landscapes made familiar to us by the Mother of American modernism’s own iconic works.

Photographer, anthropologist and environmentalist, Karl Dudman ( who is also Lydia's son) travelled to New Mexico with the artist to record all stages of the Looking for Georgia project. A selection of his photographs will be on display in the exhibition and he will be present on some of the exhibition tours to talk about them and the journey across New Mexico.

Exhibition supported by Great Art and Alec Tiranti Ltd.
