Gay moved here from Canberra a couple of years ago, and she was struck by the extraordinary differences in the lifestyle.
First of all, I couldn’t stop painting the sea and the waves, And then I noticed the brightness and boldness of the flowers here -even in winter, says Gay.
Whereas Canberra has pastel blossoms and english bulbs, the south coast is a riot of bright reds, purples, oranges and yellows. On her early morning walks Gay photographs all the hibiscus, azaleas, salvias and geraniums, and against the blue sea and sky they look all the more vivid.
This is why this exhibition is named ‘Petal Power’ No shrinking violets here -these flowers, for the most part, are bright and brave.
