Surface' relates directly to the tactile nature of the art works. Featuring both real and simulated texture, the lyrical and imaginative quality of surfaces was the major focus, for both artists, in the making of the works for this exhibition.

Marion Joy Moise is inspired the by a variety of influences, including impressions of the built environment and interactions with the natural environment. Her response to the 'surface' brief is mysterious in her figurative work, as she portrays impressions of human and animal figures moving on, through or into a surface. In her abstract pieces Moise uses an intuitive approach to the mixed media, which is applied through pouring, scratching, scraping and laying down of a variety of paper and tissue into/onto the encaustic and sometimes acrylic media, resulting in a sensuous and inviting surface.

Rosemarie Reber incorporates her astute observational skill as she explores the surface of her motif - the Australian native flower, the Protea. Re interpreting the Protea in a variety of 2D and 3D media, Rosemarie creates delicate and multi-layered pastel and charcoal drawings that seem to move on the surface of the paper and her colourful paintings dance off the canvas. While her vibrant ceramic interpretations in the form of installation pieces (of the Protea) are tactile and engaging, her colourful paintings dance off the canvas.

Opening drinks: Saturday 29 October, 2 - 4pm.
