The Bayview Gallery at La Perouse Museum is delighted to host artist Sue Liu and her intricate marine images drawn from scuba dives in Kamay Botany Bay.

Sue Liu – known as Wildcard-Sue – was invited to show in The Bayview as her stunning marine images bring the fragile and spectacular underwater ecosystem of Kamay Botany Bay into the Museum itself.

Inspired by her passion for the sea and scuba diving in Sydney, Wildcard-Sue’s exhibition Marine Dream in Botany Bay is sure to submerge you into an unforgettable dream on the shore of the Bay. This show features 50+ original artworks from her talented hand, drawn using mainly a black Artline pen and Tombow markers. Sue is a self-taught illustrator, observational artist and scuba diver, and brings the Bay’s ocean animals to life here in her first solo gallery show.

These curious creatures all come from Sydney’s magical underwater world and are all vulnerable to the impact of pollutants, garbage, and refuse like fishing line and hooks that enter their environments and habitats. The illustrations showcase marine animals you may be familiar with and many that you’ve never seen before! Study them up close in this exhibition and in intricate detail through Sue’s stunning mono and colour illustrations.

Sue will also be hosting workshops, markets and an author’s talk at the Bowen Library alongside the exhibition. Keep an eye on What’s On for more details!
