Gemma Rasdall

Pittwater based artist Gemma Rasdall has maintained a studio practice for the past 10 years. She has exhibited across Sydney and has been selected in a number of prestigious art prizes including the 2022 Wynne Prize and 2023 Ravenswood Women’s Art Prize. She lives aboard her modest yacht with dog Arkie and paints from her Scotland Island studio. Art and life are inextricably intertwined.

These panoramic paintings are based on small gouache studies created in the landscape and strive to capture the essence of place. Colours and titles are guided by feeling over fact and negative space is crucial to compositional construct of the works. Painted on raw recycled sailcloth, these canvases are handmade on Scotland Island and tell stories of a former life on the sea.
