Fringe comes to Adelaide Botanic Garden

Fringe comes to Adelaide Botanic Garden

Date posted: 20 February 2013

Local emerging artist Nic Brown brings the Fringe to Adelaide Botanic Garden, presenting Forestal, a temporary public artwork.

'Forestal' comprises salvaged red gum logs and branches that sit, lie and linger in the Mallee Section of the Adelaide Botanic Garden. The tree limbs are variously coated - painted with landscape imagery to evoke remnants of former lives.

Nic uses painting and installation to explore notions of home, memory and the natural world and works from the Fontanelle Studios in Bowden. She was awarded an Adelaide Central School of Art scholarship in 2007 and, majoring in Painting, she graduated from the school with Honours in 2008. Since graduating Nic has participated in solo and group exhibitions in Adelaide and Melbourne. Nic received the Kidman Art Prize for Watercolour in 2009, SALife Emerging Artist Award during the South Australian Living Artists Festival (SALA) in 2010, and Saint Ignatius Emerging Artist Prize in 2011.

In 2012 Nic Brown was commissioned by ArtsSA Public Art and Design Fund, ArtsSA Independent Makers and Presenters and Adelaide City Council Arts and Living Culture Program for her work in the multi-venue SALA exhibition 'conversations in ellipsis', which was also presented at Adelaide Botanic Garden.
