“Given”

Amica’s latest collection ‘Given’, serves as a gentle tribute to the gifts freely given us by Mother Earth. Amica intentionally collected the rich, red ochre from her local area, to create the base pigment for each painting – thus, giving each piece that gorgeous dusty, pink hue which so embodies our Australian landscape. 

These pieces are currently on exhibition at Michael Reid Gallery, Murrurundi. 1 Aug – 16th Aug. 2019.
