The Goulburn, its River Red Gums, billabongs and wildlife are depicted using vibrant tones and reductive shapes that are applied with adhesive vinyl on a painted ground.

Purbrick’s graphic compositions are overlayed with linear mark making that conjures up the constant flux of the seasons. Also resembling topographical maps or the indentations of human fingerprints, they express a reverence and connection with nature.

Rosa Purbrick has exhibited in a number of group and solo exhibitions, both in Australia and internationally. Her work is included in private and public collections such as U.S.A. Embassy, Canberra; Shepparton Art Museum, VIC; Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, Melbourne; Victoria National Art School; Sydney; and Ontario College of Art Toronto, Canada.
