Geographers Antarctica & New Zealand

Professional cartographer and illustrator Tracy Connnolly has produced a stunning series of paintings featuring Antarctic and New Zealand landscapes. Acrylic on canvas, these incredible works are based on the photography of geographer Sarah Mager.

 

Connolley's masterful technique convays the almost organic texture of paint brush strokes with photo-realism, without having to compromise method or goal. The viewer knows they are looking at a richly textured painting, yet at a glance, will be struck by the photo-realism. Prepare to be mentally transported to stunning vistas, magnificent mountain ranges and to meet native bird-life.

 

Tracy opens her exhibition on Friday 9th November at 5:30pm and the paintings will be on show at Mint until Thursday 29th November.
