Stephanie Tabram

BETT GALLERY

28 August- 19 September, 2020

65 Murray Street, Hobart

Tabram’s work plays masterfully with the eternal nature of the traditional landscape painting and the instantaneous and transparent quality of film. Her images — though still, private, almost lonely —are pregnant with suspense. Tabram lets us linger in the last of the golden light on the dry grass before the clouds roll over – and then in the thick air of those swelling clouds the moment just before the storm breaks – and then in the silence of the empty highway, silver with the recent rain and lined with puddles as still as glass.
