Erin Conron “ Intersect, 3 June - 20 June 2021

Published by: Beaver Galleries | 28-May-2021

Erin Conron forms beautiful blown glass vessels where the glass is used as a canvas for layered complex linear patterns. Her new work examines the intersection of separate parallel planes. As she says, On a conceptual level the horizontal plane is the visible, tangible, form based exterior world. The vertical is non-visible, separate from space and time, the private inner space. Through repeated simplicity I create complexity, energy and movement, allowing the viewer to experience the work from different perspectives and inviting reflection and contemplation.

The interplay of water in landscape continues to inspire Judith White and her new body of work focuses on the beautiful natural environment of the south coast of New South Wales. Using her unique layering process of pigment and collage, Judith lets abstract shapes dance across the canvas surface echoing the snaking of water and sand through rocks and scrub. By abstracting the solid landscape, Judith aims to illuminate the sensory effect of these bush, beach and creek sanctuaries which team with bird call, light and peace.

Luminosity of life from the easel of a Grey Nomadic Artist

Published by: Kathryn Coller | 25-May-2021

En plein air painting is the act of painting outdoors. What better way to capture the everchanging mood and atmospheric conditions than to paint what is seen directly onto canvas? It is living in the present moment. It can involve idyllic conditions where life literally stands still as the artist immerses in the scene. However weather and global pandemics can have other agendas. An award-winning Brisbane artist, Barbara Vivash takes us on her journey through landscapes and life events in a mesmerizing exhibition to be showcased at Redcliffe, Queensland during June and July 2021.
