Beauty & Fear brings together new work by painters Robert Hirschmann and Andy Pye, both who have connection to north-east Victoria. Together, they present a captivating selection of recent paintings that invite viewers to embark on a visual journey through the Australian bush.
Hirschmann’s expressive forms and vibrant hues intertwine with Pye’s bold brushstrokes and keen eye for colour, offering unique perspectives on the mesmerising allure of the natural world.
Delving beyond its tranquil serenity, the artists also acknowledge the inherent fear and untamed power of the bush, celebrating both its beauty and its danger.
