Karen Standke is an Australian artist who has had a career in the arts spanning 20 years, with both exhibitions nationally and internationally.
Her paintings are informed through research into the changing face of the landscape and the impact of climate change, introduction of weeds and non-native fauna and flora. “My work focuses on the change in the environment – thus raising questions; How do we respond emotionally? How do we respond practically to these challenges? It is this juxtaposition that I am most interested in, informed by psychology, politics, religion and science”.

Coinciding with Mental Health Week this exhibition is part of Meg’s legacy and is being held to give formal recognition to her photographic ability and also to help visitors to the exhibition become more comfortable in talking about mental health and suicide.
