Event Description

Following the success of his 2023 BARK Exhibition, Northern Beaches artist Col Ritchie takes us on another forest friendly journey ‘Out of the Woods’.

Col continues to draw inspiration from the Australian landscape artfully combining abstract realism to create atmospheric paintings and cleverly incorporating natural resources to create expressive mixed media dog sculptures.

His serene landscapes evoke peaceful harmony while his charismatic dog sculptures provide a sense of adventure and fun.

Out of the Woods presents a captivating connection between the calm beauty of nature and the personable vitality of our beloved stick gathering companions.  Together the artworks create a harmonious balance between exploration and lightheartedness.  The body of each dog is individually handcrafted from clay, kiln fired and hand painted.  Natural resources (bark/branches) are used for the legs which provides a distinct organic quality to each piece and making them truely one-of-a-kind creations that cannot be replicated. 

Over 40 dogs sculptures depicting different breeds will be on show, each comes with an adoption card and carry home kennel.
