Triple Treat for art lovers
Art can truly evoke happiness, and a sense of wellbeing in the viewer. It certainly is capable of immersing you in the subject matter so that after some time you feel calmed and soothed and come away feeling changed. Three artists who know the magic of the interplay between what they see and what they feel, and translate their response into beautiful art, are joining forces in an upcoming Redcliffe exhibition.
The art of Joanne Power Cotton, Petra Daecke and Louise Corke in their 3x3 collaboration.
Joanne Power Cotton’s art delights in interpreting light as it magically plays with her subject. The fundamental focus in her work is to capture this unique moment. Joanne’s paintings cover several genres and mediums, including landscape, seascape, wildlife, still-life - pastel, oil, acrylic multi-media, and watercolour.
Petra Daecke, a pastel and oil artist says painting communicates to all people with different layers of meaning. She combines her deep response to a subject’s energy with her artistic ability to paint the light and the mood of the scene. Petra believes that art has the ability to open people’s hearts and to heal bruised or lost souls.
Louise Corke’s pastels dance! This Master Pastellist describes her painting process. Her heart responds to her subject and simultaneously, her hand translates these feelings into colourful and light filled interpretations onto her canvas. Louise provides visual information through the quick touch of her pastel, capturing her immediate artistic response.
