A Melbourne based artist, Morter has developed her practice at an international level – most notably and recently in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. No stranger to experimentation, ‘New Works’ features beautiful pastel on paper of Mt. Horo Koau. Morter’s works have a calming theme, with colours being swept across the page, bordered by blunted edging. Check it out before the walls get replaced.
