Top Arts 2021 - Bronte Green

Through ordinary objects in an everyday setting, Streets of your town conveys Bronte Green’s perception of the understated beauty of Australian suburbia. She has painted this Melbourne streetscape in warm hues to evoke a sense of nostalgia and allude to the dying light of a summer afternoon. Contrasting dark, cool shadows connect fences from each property to the discarded items on the nature strip. Playful in her precision, Green creates familiarity and sentimentality from the seemingly banal aspects of everyday living.
