Gertrude Glasshouse

44 Glasshouse Road, Collingwood

30 August – 28 September 2024

muddy edges is an exhibition of new work by First Nations artist Lisa Waup. Conjuring memories of the squelching mud between your toes and children’s cries of glee, the banks of our rivers have always been places to gather, rest, and connect.

Revealed as gestures of Country, this new selection of works underscore Waup’s intuitive printing process and the sustainable techniques that are central to her practice. Waup incorporates unusual pigments and ochres, not limiting herself to conventional printing materials. Further developing her works through the instinctive layering of her hand drawn patterns, Waup creates complex and narrative driven work.

Water is a direct link between the spiritual and physical realms and is central to our cultural identity. muddy edges emphasises the preciousness and fragility of our waterways, reminding us of our responsibilities as we experience the immediacy of the climate crisis.
