UNEARTHING BEAUTY AT THE TABLE

BELINDA'S SHOW WAS SO WELL RECEIVED THAT WE HAVE ASKED HER BACK FOR MORE! Email us for the catalogue or to make a viewing appointment (WorkLife Berry 1/70 Albert St, Berry)

An exhibition of original illustrations and limited-edition prints.

Australian illustrator Belinda Aucott invites wine, food and flowers lovers to enjoy sketches from her Autumn & Winter table.

 
Drawn from a sparkling range of aperitifs and digestifs collected on her blog Champagne Republic, and from the vases amassed on her table during lock down - Work Life Berry presents colourful new work by Belinda Aucott.
 
Illustrations, paintings and works on board includes images of oysters and urchins. There are also impressionistic depictions of gin, Campari and Amaro created in pastel, ink and acrylic.
 
Floral works include arrangements of delphiniums, orchids and wild poppies. 
 
“Winter is such an interesting time to be at home drawing fresh cut flowers. You bring them inside to give yourself a piece of their untamed wild nature and then you accidentally kill them with the radiated heat of your living room,” reflects Belinda. 
 
“A perfect metaphor for relationships, that start wild and get contaminated by every day arrangements.”

 

“Champagne Republic as a whole, is a project that charts the months and measures them in bottles tasted, glasses sipped and memories consumed. It is about my personal effort to take time to smell the roses and to really appreciated every single drop of life. I hope others will enjoy these images that remind me of happy times spent with friends,”
