My exhibition 'Vortex: Seeking Stillness At its Core' is keeping me busy. There's been a steady flow of visitors and some sales too! The opening night went really well, with around 100 or so people atttending.
Check out page 6 of the Brisbane News...a small 'SnapShot' article about the exhibition:
The painting above is called 'Becoming The Light'. I finished it just a few days before the exhibition opened. A figure is inside the vortex core embraced by light which errupts from the vortex peak in a tree-of-life cascade. The stillness at the vortex core has been sought and found, and in so doing the figure is not only embraced by light but becomes light, thus illuminating the way.

Painting for Kathryn Brimblecombe-Fox is a spiritual event. Her work has a lyrical optimism that emanates from the beauty of the work itself and from the poetic nature of her supporting texts. Her personal oeuvre is both intelligent and understated. It comes with a big agenda-to make the world a better place in which to live. A daunting goal: but for Brimblecombe-Fox, optimism is a state of mind-a matter of choice- a way of always moving forward. This means her painting is ethically driven, politically informed and aesthetically pleasing. Dr. Christine Dauber
VORTEX: Seeking Stillness At Its Core
• Exploring the possibility of stillness in the vortex core where we can listen to things we did not know could be heard, see things we did not know could be seen and feel things we did not know could be felt. As we live locally in an increasingly globalised world new perspectives inspire compassion for self and others.
• Investigating the distance between the nano and cosmological, and thus revealing new perspectives.
• And...WATER...well how does water go down the plughole? As a farmer’s daughter Kathryn has an intense interest in the conversations and debates about water, its uses, value, commodification, infrastructure, sustainability. These are her ‘quiet activism’ paintings!
