‘We are a Group of Melbourne Artists who formed a strong bond in our years as students in the Printmaking Studio while studying for our Diploma of Visual Arts .
Our art practice is as varied as we are, and demonstrates the unlimited ways in which printmaking methods and practices can inspire each of us to create wonderful images.
Expressing our creations with linocut and drypoint etching, our work describes the many ways in which our world becomes manifest.  All of our works are printed on archival paper using either oil or water based inks.

As well as Works on Paper, Amanda includes handmade books. Her artwork is inspired by “the great fortune to have a garden which attracts a number of Australian native birds, and so I felt that an “ABC” book of Australian birds would be a good way to address the gap I had identified. From that point, the study of birds in the garden, the finding of feathers, the examination of other avian images filled my mind, and enabled me to produce a variety of images.”

Jeremy states that his “prints and paintings are presented as scenes or representations of ideas in realistic or semi-realistic ways, attempting to tell a story or explain an idea with each piece. Utilizing composition of light and shadow and perspective. My art is a personal reflection of my own experiences as also a way to deal with life’s problems. Light and shadow a predominant themes in my work. Many of my pieces capture moments in time, carrying layers of meaning.”

 Pamela explores Modernist influences, Sophie presents her sensitive images of the human condition on both paper and ceramics and Fay’s ‘Abstractions’ explore the universal shapes of circles, triangles and square, with some pieces being embellished with stitching and hand colouring.’   Artist Fay Abromwich

AT HOME | 29 June-24 July

AT HOME  | 29 June-24 July 2017
Exhibition Opening Saturday 1st July 2-4 pm Join us for Opening Drinks.

AT HOME is a curated group show  featuring paintings & drawings by 6 female artists:
KIATA MASON ,CHRISTINE WEBB, WENDY McDONALD, LIZZIE DENNIS,
PHILLIPA CROLL and SHARON MONAGLE

“Initial idea for this exhibition was Interiors, with the aim to explore our home spaces in a visual language of painting & drawing. It took 2 months to prepare the show and after selecting the paintings, it became obvious, that the title for this exhibition should be changed to AT HOME. This exhibition consists by 34 works by 6 female artists from Victoria and NSW, who didn’t know each other before the show.
Each exhibition is like a breathing, live organism that has life of its own. It draws to itself, like a magnet, different people, works, ideas and circumstances. And you can never predict how it will turn up, until you actually put all pieces up on the wall. Only then, you can see the beautiful synergy of colour, form, texture and subject matter. It becomes a cohesive unit, which is alive, vibrant and communicates with each other and audience in many unexpected ways.
This exhibition is not about concepts and ideas, but about the beauty and simplicity of our intimate spaces, where the whole process of homeostasis occurs by rebalancing and recharging our lives. Home is where the heart is and these artworks shine the warm, feminine light to the audience. They are snapshots of our everyday lives seen from the woman’s perspective.
May you all come home to your heart while exploring this visual journey from Outside to Inside.”

KIATA MASON

This series of work by Kiata Mason revolves around the collections of objects in the
domestic home environment. A quiet contemplation of the small and beautiful objects
that make a house a home. Looking at two familiar spaces, that of the sea side home
of my grandmothers at Lake Cathie and my aunts home in Palm beach as both have a
love of the found and collected object. The two homes are full of shells, paintings,
sculptures, flowers and other found things others might walk past, interspersed with
day to day objects of food and flowers, collected together tell a story of the people who
have lived in the house and bean part of the family.

LIZZIE DENNIS

My practice is underpinned by my love of drawing.  I enjoy drawing from life,
with a focus on interiors and the relationships we have with our everyday domestic
environments and the other people and objects that may inhabit those spaces as well.
I also enjoy portraiture, and particularly portrait commissions, because it allows
me to focus on the elements that make each of us unique and irreplaceable.  I often
combine portraits with domestic spaces or personal objects in order to create a sense
of the everyday, yet in a familiar, but unfamiliar, sense. Whilst I like to experiment
with many mediums, I do work predominantly in colour pencil.  I enjoy the precision,
detail, texture, depth and lightness that pencil allows me to achieve.

CHRISTINE WEBB

I am a multi disciplinary artist who paints in Acrylic on stretched canvas, and works on
paper both figurative and abstract. The starting point for my work will be a sense of light and
colour and shafts of light will fall onto, through or around an object and the effects of that fall
of of light. Whether objects are transparent, of silhouetted against a window, I am continually
fascinated at the relationship between light and shadow, solid and transparent. When I draw
I like to anchor figures to the ground and chairs to a floor with a sense of dimension that’s
either evident and receding into the distance or tilted into the viewers picture plane.

SHARON MONAGLE

I find art is a useful tool to help me to explore, understand and to empathize
with people’s experiences – their reactions to self, to others and to the world
around them. It enables me to see beauty in the everyday and in imperfection.
Other key influences are the built and natural environments: in particular I
am drawn to the sea and boats (the daughter of a long line of sea-farers) and
to industrial scenes that tell us much about the way we live today. A degree of
abstraction seeks to remind us that we all see the same thing differently: our
perceptions are distorted by our own experience, our mood, our biases.Whilst
still experimenting with style and technique, I like to paint with acrylic and
tend to paint fast: often wet-on-wet, allowing the painting to emerge or
declare itself as I go.

PHILIPPA CROLL

“These paintings represent the objects of everyday life whilst recognizing
that life consists of many layers and contradictions. Objects, rooms and
doorways are found in unexpected places. Our role in nature is shown by
the landscapes discovered within the objects themselves reflecting our
tendency to behave as though our actions are inconsequential. Nevertheless
they are optimistic, bright paintings reflecting our ability to take on the
challenges that we face, to create and move forward.”

“As an artist, I am continually evolving. My Still Life and Landscape works are narratives about the
connection I have to the both land and community, in our remote part of the river country. The “found”
interior paintings in this show are snapshots of a farming and artistic life intertwined. Included is foliage
from our forest, produce from the orchard and equipment for making. Small moments of the everyday,
providing a link between rural and city consciousness.”

My most recent work investigates how we access memories and the emotional and sensory responses to memories. It is through the visual medium of paint, collage and drawing; using formal elements of line, form, shape and colour, where I articulate my own and shared responses to memories of people, places and experiences. It is how I am able to make sense of something that is often difficult to articulate through sustained thought and conversation; trying to give the feelings memories generate a tangible presence in a visual context. It is through this process that I map out the relationship between a memory; representational and non-representational forms, often fractured in nature, hence why much of the work often takes on an almost topographical appearance. John Elderfield et al (2011) writes “A representational painting can be composed through abstract manipulation of the medium of painting and also the less familiar one that an abstract painting may be created through acts of representation.”; an exchange of the elements, the abstract and the representational. It is through this process of mapping out an experience or memory that I am able to put together fractured pieces of memory and create something that generates aesthetic interest, however, also has the potential to resonate with the viewer, help them to understand their own memories and thought processes; how and why they respond in such a way. Whether they’re negative or positive, memories of people, places, experiences and happenings are deeply engrained within everyone they make us who we are. Memories are precious things; even the bad ones, we learn from them, teach ourselves and teach others. My late grandmother developed dementia and lost almost all of her memories, not remembering who I and her other grandchildren were, it slowly consumed her entire mind. That is why I map memories; as well as try to articulate one’s emotional and sensory responses, my own and those of friends, family and even strangers, to ensure that they live on through paint even when we cease to exist.

LAURA WHITE | 8-29 April

LAURA WHITE | Still | 8-29 April 2017

Exhibition Opening Saturday 15 April 2-4 pm

portrait 2

Laura White is an Australian realist artist specialising in still life and nature-inspired oil paintings.   Originally from Argentina, White moved to Australia as a child.   Her paintings illustrate vivid images of clarity and life-like quality which subsequently necessitate the need for considerable observation of the brush work. Her love for both food and the garden greatly influences the realist and botanical subject matters which she prefers. White employs the ‘flemish’ techniques of the Dutch Masters and uses multiple layering methods and translucent glazes to achieve depth and texture in her work. Her main motivation is to portray the inherent beauty she sees in everyday life, capturing colour, light and texture to produce artworks that speak to the senses.

After an unfulfilling period studying interior design, White’s first steps in oil painting were largely self-guided and driven by curiosity and experimentation, after which she began studying at Petruccelli Art Studio in 2015 in Upper Beaconsfield. Here, where she began developing the depth of her creative license. White now paints full time from her studio in Berwick, providing work to exhibit both locally and interstate with subsequent sales being made both within Australia and internationally.

“I am inspired by the everyday items usually taken for granted.  My aim is to engage the viewer not only with their sense of sight, but also that of touch, taste and smell. Since starting to paint, I find myself “looking” at things with a greater intensity; truly looking at the colours, textures, contrasts, reflections and hues. I hope that by capturing this, I force the individual to stop and take a minute to see things through my eyes.  This is what I strive to share with my viewer.”

“The river calls me, with its ever changing lights, its unpredictable streams of colour across its surface, the weather reflected in its long history in the trees the rocks and the changes they reflect. The mud flats, where the tides show their continuity and the underworld. The crab sounds,the fish jump, the birds fly and land.Splash! Another pattern to observe.Rain falls as I glide a canoe, a pattern of dots. Clouds cover the sun, water changes colour. A boat that passed ten minutes before leaves a track on the water.

Middens line the foreshore: people have lived and loved and died in this area for generations and generations. The patterns: in the water, in the varied shaped hills that line this river, the sky, in the trees and rocks within the hills. The textures of different trees, angophoras, banksias and rocks and grasses, and the ever moving skies all move me inside the experience and then beyond.” Sally Stokes

 

Elisabeth Cummings talk at Sally Stokes Opening: “It’s all about the colour”

It is a great pleasure to walk into this space and experience the vibrancy of Sally’s paintings. “It’s all about the colour”- Sally sees colour in a unique way in the landscapes she loves. She is a risk taker with colour- I delighted in the surprises- often she will juxtapose a jangle of colours against the open and quieter spaces. She finds the links between the large forms and the calligraphy that interrupts them. The paintings have many moods- they can be playful and light hearted- they can be more sombre and reflective. They are subtle and raw at the same time and each painting deserves one’s full attention. Fairweather said “Painting to me is quiet a mystery- I just work at it” and “Painting to me is something of a tightrope act, it is between representation and the other thing- whatever that is.” I’m sure Sally would agree with him. As Tony suggests- painting is a form of meditation and Sally has spent time in the landscapes that engage her meditating, sometimes through the many drawings she does and then again alone in the studio immersing herself in the translations of what she has seen. It is 10 years since Sally last showed in a gallery. She has been drawing and painting steadily over these 10 years and the paintings shown here are just a fraction of what she has produced. Thank you Tony for making this happen. May there be many more shows. These paintings lift the spirits. They are alive. Thank you Sally.

VANESSA STOCKARD | Paintings

VANNESSA STOCKARD | Sydney

vanessa stockard

I like to portray the physical change and transplantation from the bustling city to the relative cool serenity of the Southern Highlands. Shadows and reflections carefully rendered in these paintings reveal the distortion of thoughts and experience as I try to live in the moment, yet struggle to do so. I bend light around corners, shadows and reflections are nonsensical yet compositionally interesting. I make new connections with colour and texture in each  painting and I watch my ideas morph and grow with each body of work. I am experimental in nature and will continue to push personal boundaries in terms of colour, substrate, composition and meaning. During 20 years of painting I have developed a private set of motifs that find their way into paintings when I need to express something pictorially. Like developing your own language, this skill has enabled me to communicate internally, the way that writing down your thoughts can increase comprehension of difficult concepts.

Painting for me is both a personal refuge and a comfort, I paint my favourite day-to-day things. I pluck fruit and flowers from the garden, place them inside and paint them immediately, capturing their fresh fragrant and edible beings. Interior and outdoor scenes are creative spaces where I can play with my ideas, spaces where I attempt to recreate the complex nature in which I experience life.

DAN TOMKINS paintings

DAN TOMKINS |Paintings
until  22 October 2016

‘A passion for creating has always been a really strong presence ever since I can remember. Immersed in the studio, I feel energised surrounded by the tools and materials I’ve collected for making art. It’s the unlimited potential inherent in the creative process, the unknown, that I’m attracted to. For me, the most enjoyable part of painting isn’t what is planned but the surprise of what unfolds’.

Dan is based in Adelaide, South Australia where he lives with his family. He worked as a graphic designer and art director before embarking on a career as a freelance illustrator in 2000. Now painting and illustrating full-time, he has successfully exhibited in solo and group shows, and produced numerous works for both private and corporate collections. Working in a wide range of media, much of Dan’s work is inspired by his love and keen observation of nature.
