Exhibition: Wattleitbe, Young Lovers (Are) Tuned To Trees

Wattleitbe, Young Lovers (Are) Tuned To Trees
Exhibition Dates3rd December - 23rd December

This body of work comprising a collection of 13 paintings is the imagined continuation of another painting called, Young Lovers.

“I began to see the original work as the setting for a story and painted toward the understanding that powerful bonds between people transmute into and heighten the everyday. For me, it’s also ironic because I’m single! So I tapped into my deep love of trees to drive the narrative and celebrate passion.”

Illustrator, Cartoonist & Author, Eliza Feely has been working under the name Wattleitbe since 2015, storytelling on sustainably sourced plywood in wild colours, reminiscent of pages of a book. Her trademark thumbprint is and the wood itself is integral to the work. Wattleitbe is infused with a love of comics, records, radio, humour, folk tales and speaks vibrantly about the wilderness and characters which surround her home in The Otways, Victoria.
