Simone Read’s REMEMBER THE WILD is one of two exhibitions currently online to view at the Traffic Jam Galleries.
In her work Read celebrates the glory of Australian trees, their beauty, colour and texture. Some of the works are also accompanied by a poem/quote of a song from for example Judith Wright, John Williamson and Peter Allen.
Readuses a variety of materials to produce some stunning works. First we see ink and gouache on canvas – Snowgum is exquisitely, delicately textured in hushed pinks and greys.The swirling mass of the bark is controlled by the strong diagonal line.
Old Euc in its neutral greys and browns is a delightful portrait in a strong vertical composition of a tree that is in Read’s back yard.
This is a delicious mixed group exhibition from several of the Gallery’s ‘stable ‘ of artists. The theme of the exhibition is to evoke memories of both past summers and thoughts of future summers. Memory and bittersweet nostalgia are depicted using varied colour and form.
The assorted artists who are included in this exhibition, whilst being quite different from each other in both the stage of their career and their practice, are each highly regarded and actively participate in the Australian art scene both locally and nationally.
Each artist has only a very small representative selection comprising a couple of their works in the current Traffic Jam exhibition.
“My challenge is to capture the moment in 3-D. My sculpture creates a drawing in space and time”, writes Jenny Green.

The gallery is located within an industrial style four level building, making one think of a of a New York loft that has been turned into a studio and gallery. It is itself an island ,surrounded by a major bus stop and the busy hustle and bustle of Falcon Street and the Big Bear shopping centre located at Military Road, Neutral Bay.
