CATHERINE HULL SINCLAIR | Reverence
30 July - 11 September 2016
Silver Leaf Art Box is pleased to present Reverence, an exhibition of recent paintings by Mornington Peninsula painter Catherine Hull Sinclair. Sinclair is an accomplished painter who has been practising for more than twenty years.
In Reverence Sinclair brings together several conceptual threads that have continually fuelled her work. The artist’s deep concern for the natural world finds its expression in intricately detailed still life paintings and portraits. Traditionally the still life pays homage to nature by celebrating abundance and sensuality whilst reminding us of the ephemerality of life. Sinclair’s paintings are sensitive and vitally realised mementos mori, flowers are cut - their time is short. Beetles lie on their backs, legs still. Blowflies hover around a bowl of luscious fruit.
