Inspired and informed by many different locations from the Australian landscape. Primrose is interested in recreating the surfaces, textures and colours evocative of a particular place, although each work is a culmination of many different images, spaces and experiences, achieved through memory and experimentation.
Primrose’s method of working is integral to her art practice. She works outside on location and incorporate elements of her surroundings, she gathers soil and water samples from these field trips and uses these samples in her work.
