Vertigo plays with the physical feelings evoked by experiences of travelling in Australia — of standing at the base of epic gorges that are all encompassing, as well as reflecting upon how the theoretical concept of the antipodes (the upside down land) continues to inform Australian identity constructs.
Receiving a PhD (Painting) from Sydney College of the Arts in 2015 and awarded a Marten Bequest Travelling Scholarship in the same year, French returned to Warmun Art Centre in East Kimberley. There, she continued her research on the influence of Aboriginal contemporary art on the Australian art world. She has exhibited extensively in Sydney and also in Alice Springs, Hobart, Toowoomba and Japan.
French will give a talk on Australian Painting at 5.30pm on Thursday 26 October at the Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery. She will lead an artist talk at ALG on Friday 27 October at 6pm.
