A recent graduate of National Art School in Sydney studying a Bachelor of Fine Art, Emerging Artist Rosemary Lee applied and won the 2019 ADFAS (Ku-ring-gai) Emerging Artist Residency at Eramboo Artist Environment earlier this year. Lee was provided a private artist studio for the month of August 2019, a $300 stipend and a solo-exhibition for November generously sponsored by the Australian Decorative and Fine Arts Society (Ku-ring-gai).
PLASTICA delves into artist Rosemary Lee's observations during her residency at Eramboo Artist Environment. Her experiences surrounded by the native landscape that her studio was situated within is reflected in this captivating series of multidisciplinary works.
Lee's subject matter has been developed through pencil drawings, etchings, and oil paintings. Her artworks depicts a focus on form and light exploring topics such as climate change and the impact of our human footprint on local ecosystems and the natural environment.
Plastica, Lee's first solo exhibition, has been created as the recipient of the ADFAS Ku-ring-gai Emerging Artist Award.
Rosemary Lee was presented with the ADFAS Emerging Artist Award 2019, a one month residency and solo exhibition, supported by ADFAS Ku-ring-gai.
Plastica will be running during a month long Eramboo Arts Initiative titled Art & Music: A Natural Fit, with live music from musicians Nat & Jules proudly sponsored by Northern Beaches Council.

Rosemary Lee on her time at Eramboo:
"I had an amazing time at Eramboo Artist Environment. I had never had my own studio before so I was able to realise the benefits of having a room that was wholly dedicated to my art. It allowed me to focus on my art without distractions, and the luscious bush in front of my studio provided a great source of inspiration."
