Rona Scott was an accredited Australian artist, and an art teacher, who frequently exhibited at the Von Bertogh Gallery in Newcastle. Her work appeared in exhibitions alongside the works of well-known artists including Pro Hart and Salvador Dali. Rona was a member of the Theosophical Society for several decades.  The latter part of her life was spent in Sydney, where she painted a set of over 70 paintings called ‘Cosmic Birth’ in the short space of a couple of years during the early 1980s. These were inspired by the Stanzas of Dzyan in Madame Blavatsky’s magnum opus, The Secret Doctrine, and more than half of the series is included in this gallery. These paintings showcase her remarkably vivid use of colour along with her individual interpretation of the beginnings of the universe. Rona Scott-Abbott passed away in 2006, leaving a substantial legacy which we are pleased to present online.
