REVIVE Artists bring Murals to the River of Art

REVIVE Artists

REVIVE is an exciting addition to this year’s River of Art Festival introducing public art to the program for the first time. River of Art Festival organisers say "We are thrilled to have Tim de Haan (Phibs) curating this part of the Festival for us. Tim has been a professional public artist for 30 years and has strong family ties to the region. "Each artist is creating a unique work, real-time, during the Festival from 18-27 September. A map below each entry shows you where the artist is working can be found on the website under REVIVE locations. "The murals have been funded by the Eurobodalla Disaster Relief Fund to provide a celebration of our fabulous coastline, its incredible marine life, native flora and fauna and our recovery from the devastating 2020 bushfires. "The creation of the murals and the provision of prominent walls by local landholders has been supported by the Batemans Bay, Moruya and Narooma Business Chambers, and the mural at Riverside Drive in Narooma, by the Oyster Festival and Eurobodalla shire council. We thank them for their support." "We welcome you to tour the region and visit each site to see these massive scale art works emerge. We will be celebrating community Resilience and Renewal."

Claire Foxton will be the Mural Artist for Moruya Claire is a Wollongong-based artist and designer who is most known for her large body of public art found across Australia, New Zealand and the United States.

With a distinctive mix of abstract and realistic techniques, Claire’s painted mural works explore a site specific narrative often concerned with the connectedness of people and place.

Through considered colour palettes & acute attention to textural details, Claire’s work draws the viewer into a deeper conversation responding to land, story & identity. 

Most known for her vivid photo-realistic portraiture, the chosen subjects are often local identities, who through their actions and strength of character, remind us of our shared humanity.
