Hidden Places, a solo exhibition by acclaimed master watercolourist GUY TROUGHTON takes the viewer on an intimate journey into the natural world and features stunning evocative watercolours, mostly painted en plein air (outdoors) in national parks and bushland along northern Sydney’s foreshore.

Drawing inspiration from the shapes and form of the ancient rocks, trees and gullies, together with the birds and animals that live there, each compelling work exudes energy, originality and a sense of spirit and mystery inherent in the primeval subjects themselves.

With a naturalist’s eye of observation, the paintings echo the artist's passion and skill and often draw the viewers' attention to a particular element in the landscape rather than the ‘big picture’ view.

Describing his work GuyTroughton says:

“I am absorbed by the lyrical and abstract textures of the bush - a gnarled branch, a jagged rock, a shaft of light or a pool of water. Equally,I am inspired to explore man’s intrinsic relationship to these elements.”

Although Guy says that painting outdoors presents many challenges, he relishes the spontaneity and vitality it brings to his work:

“I conceived and painted much of the work perching on a rock or cliff. Painting quickly, I was intent on capturing the light, mood and transience of the moment. At the same time, I was deeply conscious of the timelessness of the landscape and the stories and history that lay hidden within.”

Along with the free exhibition, Guy, who is also a highly experienced teacher, will demonstrate the art of watercolour on Sunday May 27 and June 3 at 2pm.
