The Good is a major new solo exhibition by artist Anna Louise Richardson whose practice is centered around rural life, embedded in the experience and drama of everyday reality. Working primarily in charcoal and graphite, Richardson’s work explores ideas of intergenerational exchange, parenthood and identity-based on her experiences of living and working on a multi-generation beef cattle farm in rural Australia.

The Good emerged from Richardson’s broader investigations into the complex relationships between humans and the natural world, tinged by grief and the competing demands of nurturing new life. In a world increasingly defined by division and hardship, Richardson’s work points to the necessary act of radical optimism needed to seek goodness in all things.

The Good has been curated by Rachel Arndt, The Condensery and Dr Lee-Anne Hall, Wagga Wagga Art Gallery.
