Shoufay Derz - In Memory of Water

Solo show at Manly Art Gallery & Museum | 6 April - 20 May 2018

Fresh from her Australia Council career development grant travels, Northern Beaches-based, multi-disciplinary artist Shoufay Derz has built on her significant body of work focusing on landscape, poetry and the 'unknown'. From the Badlands of the USA to the Chalk Cliffs of Rugen Germany, she has explored monumental eroded landscapes to create what she calls 'luminous voids,' a visual poetry of the unknown. By reflecting on the presence of the past in the present, this new work asks us to contemplate intimacies of the unknown, as well as the ruptures between our experience and knowledge of the world.
