Elizabeth Barsham is an award-winning artist working in Tasmania, Australia's island state.
You'll want to keep your eyes wide open around these Uncomfortable Things by painters Elizabeth Barsham and Grace Garton, sculptor Julia Knight and glass artist Helene Boyer.
I've been busy working on some large canvases for the past few months, but began making some small paintings especially for this exhibition. In the middle of doing so, I fell and broke my ankle so have been out of action for the past six weeks. This was a very bad idea; don't try it yourself. Today, however, I finally got back into the studio and resumed work.
Here are the paintings I have already completed. With luck, there may be another one. As you see, my landscapes are inhabited by some peculiar characters, and I've been having fun with colour.

A baker's dozen of dark and timeless landscape paintings, as enigmatic as ever. Remnants of a forgotten past or disturbing premonitions of a dystopian future? Or something else altogether?
You can see more of Elizabeth's work at Nolan Gallery and Nolan School of Art, adjacent to the historic Long Gallery on the first floor of 77 Salamanca Place, Hobart.
