Cascoigne, R. Suddenly the lake. 1995.

While at the NGA in Canberra recently, I went to the second floor so I could see the lake.

Not much surpasses the experience of looking at Rosalie Gascoigne’s Suddenly the lake, especially since I had driven down to Canberra the day before and by the time we passed Lake George it was well and truly dark. Didn’t matter, better to see it here in the gallery.

Life imitates art. Absolutely. And my spirit soared.

Here’s a video of Rosalie Gascoigne talking about her art and the constraints on her in the early days of being a wife and mother. More images of her uniquely Australian work here.
