Jacqui Stockdale´s series The Quiet Wild is currently on show at Hawkesbury Regional Gallery. The Quiet Wild is a series of photographic portraits of mystical characters in masquerade set against hand-painted landscapes. The portraits playfully mimic the genre of exotic postcards and historical paintings in which a fanciful subject is formally positioned within a make believe landscape. The hand painted settings feature Australian scenery including Stockdale’s mother’s property in Bendigo, Melbourne Botanical Gardens and Lake Saint Claire in Tasmania.
