Brunswick Sky - Cedar Jeffs
Friday 18 September 2020 to Sunday 8 November 2020
Macnaughton Focus Gallery and Kelly Wall

Cedar Jeffs is an emerging artist currently studying at the Byron School of Art, Mullumbimby. Her practice encompasses a range of mediums, with a focus on oil painting and drawing. Jeffs’ interest lies in exploring the traditional genres of portraiture and landscape within a contemporary context. Her prolonged act of painting allows her to extend these initial impulses into hours of quiet reflection, with the resulting painting a documentation of her experience.

In this series Brunswick Sky Jeffs has featured Brunswick Heads beach as her subject. Living in this coastal area she is constantly inspired by the subtlety of colour and changes in light.

An outcome of the Community Access Exhibitions Program.
