  4. Carol says:

    Thank you, Mo, these photos are just wonderful! I love Bronwyn’s work and look forward to more photos. A very special exhibition!

    • Mo Crow says:

      it’s on for 3 months so you’ll have time to see it Carol and I will get back soon to take more photos. I really want to see the Virginia Kaiser retrospective “The Poetry of Place” before it closes on the 7th at Sturt Gallery

  5. Imagine living within these constructions…what would it feel like? Monumental.

  6. Jane B (epocktextiles) says:

    looks great – I want to go out to see it

    • Mo Crow says:

      Bronwyn visualizes & creates work on such a grand scale, I can’t imagine trying to fill three rooms in a major gallery… it would take me three lifetimes!

  7. mo, this is really incredible!
    love this love this love this

  8. Valerianna says:

    Wow, I’d sOOO love to see this show in person, but… so thanks for posting, beautiful! “you and I have floated on the stream’ is much like a small book I did a few years ago, though painted with branching systems in watercolor. I’ve thought of doing a much larger piece, this one is wonderful!

  9. Bronwyn says:

    Thanks for the fantastic blog post Mo, it was such a magical night, thanks for being there!

  10. What beautiful work, thanks for sharing this, wish I could see it in person but this is second best.

  11. fiona says:

    oh my, these are just stunning. Big breath in…and out.

  12. Midori says:

    These are amazing pieces…really beautiful!

  13. deemallon says:

    spectacular — the joinings, the scale, the symbolism, the textures — the everything. my favorite is the one with Old Man Crow in the pic.

  14. Wow- i’m flabberghasted!

  15. Susan Bowers says:

    Bronwyn’s work is staggering – would love to be able to get up close. Exquisite.

  16. Noreen Roach says:
