‘Quintessence’ brings together five local artists who have lived in Chatswood and neighbouring suburbs in the Willoughby district for many years.

The work of Alison Lee Cousland, Sue-Ellen Smith, Jan Denham, Emma Wertheim, and Stephen Denham spans different mediums and styles, united by a love of the natural world and the wish to preserve it for future generations.

Using ‘gifts’ foraged from the local bushland, Alison recycles and stitches natural and eco-friendly materials into small art pieces that are then integrated into her ephemeral arrangements. Matchboxes become shrines; seed pods, feathers, and burnt sticks become magical wands and brushes.

Sue-Ellen’s stunning photographs celebrate native birdlife in all its beauty and variety. An avid bird watcher for many years, her work allows the viewer to savour fleeting moments of surprise and awe.

Jan’s luminous imagery revels in the interplay of light, flora and the transcendental, expanding photographic moments into compositions that invite and beguile.

Emma’s vision of mystery and magic within the everyday blends original photography and digital toolsets. Selected from her up-and-coming 44-card Oracle deck, ‘Mystic Mudra’, every image interprets a different ‘mudra’ posture from the ancient tradition of yoga for the hands.

Stephen sees everything around him as subjects for hand painting and drawing using an Apple pencil. His work reflects a fascination with clouds, skies, sand and sea, and how they interact with the human world.

‘Quintessence’ offers unique perspectives from five creatives united by locale, years of friendship and a belief in the power of art to heal, uplift and offer hope. The event highlights Willoughby as a hub of talent and diversity.

An artist will be onsite each Thursday from 12 pm - 2 pm.

Willoughby City Council is gratefully acknowledged for the provision of Blend Café Art Space at the Dougherty Centre.
