Best known in recent years for her distinctive flower paintings, this year Sydney artist Laura Jones explores emotive new territory.

With an urge to learn more about the Great Barrier Reef's devastating mass bleaching event of 2016, Laura sought out a residency on Lizard Island, and then more recently on Heron Island. Painting in close proximity to the reef, and meeting the dedicated scientists who study it, has inspired a spectacular new series of paintings for Laura.

We talked with Laura ahead of her upcoming exhibition ‘Bleached‘ at Olsen Gallery in Sydney, opening mid-May.

ABOUT a year ago, iconic Australian artist John Olsen agreed to create an iconic painting that would capture the essence of his birthplace. 

It was a deeply personal work, a reflection on his beginnings. 

Unfortunately, illness meant he couldn’t be there when the exhibition opened in November last year. 

But on Saturday at Newcastle Art Gallery – just a short distance from his childhood home – Olsen got to share a piece of that work, a slice of the Hunter, with hundreds of other art lovers.
