About Romany Mollison

Romany Mollison is a landscape painter whose atmospheric works convey the vast beauty and emotional resonance of her surrounds. In recent years, Mollison’s paintings have focused on the exquisite landscape around her home in the Adelaide Hills, depicting both the untamed natural world – morning fogs, rolling hills, and misty valleys, silvery winter light emerging from heavy rain clouds – and the pastoral presence – ghostly gums standing silent in vast paddocks, glimpses of distant roads and farmhouses appearing through the fog. Captivated by the emotive qualities of changing light, shifting seasons, and the movement of shadow and mist, Mollison continues the tradition of classical landscape painting in her continuous quest to capture magical moments of stillness. From intimate postcard sized paintings to large-scale, immersive paintings, Mollison’s works elicit a sense of quiet, restorative calm.

Mollison has held solo exhibitions around Australia, including at Salt Contemporary, Queenscliff; Red Gallery, Melbourne; Counihan Gallery, Melbourne; Michael Reid Southern Highlands, Berrima, NSW; and Art Images Gallery, Adelaide. Mollison has been shortlisted for a number of art prizes, including the Lindfield Art Show (2017, 2018), Hunters Hill Art Prize (2017), Northern Beaches Art Prize (2017), Adelaide Hills Landscape Art Prize (2019, 2021), and the Glover Prize (2022, 2023, 2024), Australia’s most prestigious landscape art prize – for which she received a Highly Commended Award in 2023.
