Song of Artemis
Exhibition of wildlife drawings by Fiona Francois
CRADLE MOUNTAIN WILDERNESS GALLERY
3718 Cradle Mountain Road, Cradle Mountain, Tasmania
17th August to 14th December 2022
Fiona is a contemporary charcoal artist living in Deloraine, Tasmania. Formerly a graphic designer with 30 years of experience in areas such as video games, television and book illustration, she now creates her own imaginative artwork driven by a passion for creating a narrative on environmental issues.
This exhibition showcases Fiona’s Tasmanian wildlife series. The majority of pieces are charcoal and graphite pencil drawings with a few accents in coloured pencil. The series emerged as an extension of Fiona’s earlier “Driftwood” series which marked the beginning of a long journey exploring the nature of trees, the environment, and our human impact on the wilderness. The exhibition is interactive with QR codes under each piece which link to "behind the scenes" online content such as videos, art statements, poems and photos.
