Exhibition event: 18th January 2018, 6pm – 8pm.
Pale Rush is a recent body of work by Jess Milne that explores the landscape of the Mornington Peninsula. The exhibition takes its name from the wild grasses that grow along the coast line. Her delicate and minimal paintings meditate on human connection with nature, our interpretation and memory of place.
