Local artists Carol Rowling, Graham Hay and Victoria Nadas present new sculpture and paintings at the new Exhibitionist Gallery of Art, 4 Blake Street, North Perth, 6 - 22 April.
For her most recent paintings Carol Rowling creates a surface with paint, wax and other materials. Rowling then uses a grinder and wire brush on a electric drill to create texture and depth in her painting! "After all, a paint brush shouldn't just be made out of hair," laughs Carol. The result is work reflecting "colourful dimensions and patterns of variations within the landscape".
Sculptor Graham Hay creates circles in clay, while reflecting on individual and group rituals and relationships. "Work, home, studio, work, home studio... while around me Northbridge has a rhythm all of its own" says Graham.
Painter Victoria Nadas won a prize at the 2001 Town of Vincent Art Exhibition last week. Victoria paints instantly recognisable forms with a touch of humour. Her new work features scenes from Perth beaches, often of pear shaped Blancmange inspired figures with subtle colouring.
The Exhibitionist Gallery of Art has recently opened on Blake Street, North Perth, next to the popular Blake's Café. Local businesses Rayner and Associates and Blake's Café have generously sponsored the exhibition.
The exhibition opens on Sunday 8 April at 2.00 pm. The gallery is open Wed-Sat 10-4 pm and Sun 12.30-4 pm until 22 April (closed for Good Friday).
