Inspired by a recent artist’s residency in the Breton village of Léhon, in northwestern France, Australian artist Damon Kowarsky presents Pérégrinations. Working from a studio in a 12thcentury abbey, Damon painted every day for two months: capturing with his watercolour and pencil, the lush countryside, the hills rising up from the river, the midsummer light, and all in an ever-changing hue of green. Since returning to Australia, Damon has concentrated on a suite of etchings inspired by his memories of Brittany. The subtle and intricate architecture, the open skies and the luxurious green of Léhon permeate each work that will be presented as part of this exhibition.

Arènes de Lutèce



Damon Kowarsky studied printmaking at the Victorian College of the Arts and Glasgow School of Art. Since graduating, he has travelled extensively always seeking a source of inspiration from architecture and the colours of the earth and sky. Damon has worked as a scientific, courtroom, and archaeological illustrator as well as a teacher of drawing and printmaking. He is the recipient of various awards, and exhibits regularly in Australia and abroad, including solo exhibitions in Melbourne, Hong Kong, New York, Philadelphia, Wellington, Cairo, Damascus, Lahore, Islamabad and Karachi. Damon is currently working on a series of new etchings inspired by travels in North and South-East Asia.
