Rings of Life by Chelsea Materne Art

About this Event

Come and meet the delightful Chelsea Materne our SALA 2020 artist at Barossa Campus and view her exhibition "Rings of Life".

Chelsea Materne is a Barossa Valley based artist working in the field of printmaking. In 2020, she graduated from Adelaide College of the Arts majoring in printmaking. With the skills she has learned, she hopes to continue with printmaking and learn new skills which will develop her artistic style further.

Inspired by the land that she is surrounded by, the use of nature is seen in the materials she works with and the imagery used. Her work explores the beauty of nature and how it is seen by the people who live on the land. As she has grown up on the land as a child, it has become a major part of her life and followed into her art in a slight graphic style.

About her exhibition "Rings of Life"

Tree rings hold the mystery in the way they grow and record their life, creating a memory.

The life of a tree can be told within their rings; from the droughts in the summer through to the wet winters that are marked by the width of the rings. Any other damage, including bug infestation and bushfires, leave their mark through the rings as the new wood. These works show the memories within the trees, that have been witness to so much history.
