Jo Bertini | Country Style

Ahead of her new exhibition ‘Terra Incognita” at Olsen Irwin, it is useful to look at the artist’s studio where many of the works in the show came into being. Country Style magazine featured the artist’s gorgeous home and studio in August, and in fact many of the paintings pictured in the article have made it onto the walls of the gallery space for the exhibition. Written and styled by Karen Cotton and with photographs by Simon Kenny, the article gives a great introduction to Bertini’s Southern Tablelands home and workspace.

“Wallaburra was 16 hectares on a creek with all of the original buildings from its days as a 1200-hectare sheepstation,” she says. “But the big drawcard was the shearing shed, which I could picture as my studio. Even though the house was derelict, and occupied by roos and wombats, it had so much potential I bought it immediately.” – Jo Bertini, Country Style

“Terra Incognita” will run until December the 21st, 2014.

Jo Bertini | Country Style

Jo Bertini‘s beautiful home and studio in the Southern Tablelands of New South Wales has been featured in Country Style magazine. The article, written and styled by Karen Cotton and photographed by Simon Kenny, gives us a great insight into Bertini’s rural paradise.

“Wallaburra was 16 hectares on a creek with all of the original buildings from its days as a 1200-hectare sheepstation,” she says. “But the big drawcard was the shearing shed, which I could picture as my studio. Even though the house was derelict, and occupied by roos and wombats, it had so much potential I bought it immediately.” – Jo Bertini, Country Style

Bertini will present an exhibition of new work at Olsen Irwin in December 2014.
