Pivot Gallery, Belconnen Arts Centre

Opening: 6pm Friday 19 May 2023

Exhibition: 19 May – 2 July 2023

Body of Work charts Annika Romeyn’s artistic journey over recent years, bringing together a selection of ambitious drawings and monotype prints, scaled in relation to her own body. Reflecting the span of her outstretched arms, these works aim to immerse viewers in experiences of place and landscape – enduring and eroding, powerful and ungraspable. Throughout her practice Annika has sustained a focus on the duality and dynamism to be found at the threshold of rock and water, while frequently devoting attention to individual trees representing varying states of resilience and decay.

This exhibition includes new work created in response to Annika’s time in Mutawintji National Park, on Barkindji and Malyangapa Country, as recipient of the 2022 Broken Hill City Art Gallery’s Open Cut commission, alongside work inspired by travels and residencies from Hill End (Wiradjuri Country), to The Gippsland Lakes (Gunaikurnai Country), Namadgi National Park (Ngunnawal Country), and Guerilla Bay (Yuin Country).

About Annika Romeyn

I am fortunate to live and work on Ngunnawal and Ngambri Country in Canberra.

Inspired by the natural environment of the broader region, I combine aspects of drawing, printmaking and painting to create intricate and immersive works on paper. Through large-scale monotype prints, I seek to convey the humbling and restorative experience of walking in nature.

My work has received national recognition including, the Broken Hill City Art Gallery Open Cut commission (2022), Winner of the Burnie Print Prize (2021), Winner of the Fisher’s Ghost Art Award (2020) and Winner of the National Works on Paper prize (2020).
