Foraging | John Badcock + Susan Badcock
4 - 25 July 2021
John and Susan’s exhibition Foraging is a collection of crop subjects based around the South Canterbury landscape. Both working en-plein-air amongst sunflowers, carrot seed and other crops both artists have interpreted the subjects in their own medium. John Badcock with his heavily applied oil paint and Susan Badcock with her more delicate hand-coloured photographs.
Foraging is the act of gathering wild food for free and plays an important role in an animal’s ability to survive and reproduce. Correspondingly Susan and John have foraged the landscape for their inspiration, resulting in this stunning exhibition through the eyes of two very different artists.
