Australian artist, Hilary Herrmann, has been painting about the “everyday” for over two decades. She finds inspiration from the surroundings of her Bangalow rural property, amongst replanted rainforest, where five chooks claim dominion over the house. It is anything and everything that surrounds her; readings, dreams, domestic intimacies, fears, 3am insomniac musings. All of this is sifted through, distilled, transmuted, until finally the artwork transcends the personal and offers strange, delicate, whimsical, often darkly intimate mythologies. They are ephemeral and ineffable; they are of sea and air with no clear point of separation.
