Description

Through the lens of my camera, I capture the beauty of the South West region’s natural heritage & lifestyle in all its diverse forms. My partner Al Purdon, perfectly complements my images by framing them in WA’s celebrated timbers – Jarrah, Marri, Sheoak & Karri. Our aim is to recycle, using the assorted ‘waste’ of the timber industry – bark edge face cuts, discards and mill ends; in fact anything we can find to add that final appealing touch to make art.

Description

Beach-combing on a remote Far Northern section of The Great Barrier Reef, gave me opportunity to take a special photo that has now made its way into my artwork.

It was the catalyst to commence a marine inspired theme called “overboard”. A small cottage in Margaret River has been in the process of renovation during the past 12 months and an art studio has emerged. I now have a home for my artworks and space to paint in a pretty little piece of Margaret River.

Christian Fletcher Gallery

  • Open Days/times:Mon-Sat 9 to 4, Sunday 10 to 3 (Closed Christmas & Boxing Days and Good Friday)

Details

  • Open Days:Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday,Friday,Saturday,Sunday,Public Holidays

Description

Christian Fletcher has been a professional photographer for 27 years and still retains all of the passion and enthusiasm for taking a great photograph. At the core are three aspects of photography: capturing the beauty in landscapes, teaching his technical skills to others, and using his photography to reinforce the connections we all have with our natural environment.

Christian has perfected the art of light, composition, colour and post processing. He believes that all great landscape images have to have the ‘perfect light’ at their core, and it is this light that he is most respected for.
 
One of the highlights of Christian’s work life is imparting his knowledge to others in a series of workshops and online tutorials. His website lists his latest workshop locations (http://christianfletchertraining.com). He teaches for the love of passing on some of his knowledge, but admits that there is a ‘bit of a perk’ to traveling around the world to places like Cambodia, Iceland, Antarctica, and the many amazing locations in Australia for ‘work’.
 
The gallery also has a great range of gift items: scarves, bags, books, cards, cushions and so much more.

Christopher Young

  • Open Days/times:BY APPOINTMENT ONLY

  • Galleries:Installation,Photography

Details

  • Open Days:By Appointment Only

Description

Christopher Young was born in small-town New Zealand in the mid-seventies. After finishing his studies, he moved to Germany in 1996 before settling in Western Australia in 2002.

Isolation is a recurring theme in his life and work – the remoteness of growing up in semi-rural New Zealand, the loneliness of living in Germany as a poor German speaker and lately the geographic and ideological seclusion of life in Australia, have all coloured his artistic practice.

Context, coding in images and a lack of a personal cultural library have been central themes explored in his work.

Jillian Warnock

As a contemporary visual artist, I am searching for the inherent qualities of light, colour and form that comprises the basic elements of beauty and to reflect the world around me.

  • Open Days/times:BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
  • Galleries:Drawing,Painting,Photography,Mixed Media,Print Making,Artist Studio

Details

  • Open Days:By Appointment Only

Description

With a multimedia approach incorporating painting, installation and photography I create layers that explore these aesthetic qualities and reveal them in abstraction.

I paint initially on acetate or Perspex, I then create an installation in a selected environment which I then photograph and video, subsequently printing onto a variety of materials. My inspiration is drawn from both natural and urban environments and is strongly influenced by topical issues.

Jonathan Healy

Description

I worked as the workshop foreman at Brady Drums, designing and making unique jarrah and sheoak musical instruments.

I've always had a passion for creating furniture mostly from recycled material, with rustic finishes. As a hobby I have always enjoyed photography, I try to capture unusual colours and abstract shapes of our local south west area from an Aerial perspective.

Description

A multifaceted interdisciplinary approach led Kashmir Rouw on a journey through the arts from the physical to the conceptual. Inspired by a deep connection to the environment. Infused with geometric patterns. A desire to translate these sacred principals.

His art conceives a reality below the physical surface. A space of reflection and timelessness. A mirror to our own fragility. His iconic sculptural stone forms grace the coastal landscape of Margaret River’s Gnarabup and Mainbreak  – “Wave Wall”, “Spiral”, “Shellta” and “Refuge”.

Kristy Hoghton

Description

Art is forever an evolving and changing journey. For me art is a way to communicate to the inner world. It can inspire the senses, stir emotion and allow healing and personal growth.

An image, can tell a different story for each observer and something as simple as drinking from a handmade cup, can bring forward feelings of warmth and nurture.

Leonie Mac Lean

A little bit of nature on home wares and wearable art. Long bush walks and the discovery of Native South West Orchids inspire the photographic imagery of Yallingup artist Leonie Mac Lean.

  • Open Days:By Appointment Only

Description

“I like being out in the environment, and I like to record what is here…because we’re losing it.” Many of the tiny flowers are rare or endangered, surviving in small pockets of bush in quite obscure locations. Back in the studio, Leonie reworks the images, creating photographic montages, enhanced with her own colour language, arriving at a series of bold graphic designs. The results of this work are now available printed on rag papers and fabrics. Leonie’s home wares include cushions and drink coasters, alongside textile bags and unique clothing in the form of skirts, scarves, tops and jackets. Bringing another dimension to her arts practice, are the one-off hand-made journals…intricate images of wildflowers and orchids are cleverly scattered through the pages of parchment, drawing and writing papers.

Silvia Bussetto

From northern Italy, I moved to Margaret River four years ago to pursue my passion for painting, bringing with me a love for watercolour, photography and performance arts.

Details

  • Open Days:By Appointment Only

Description

Not possessing a rhythmic bone in my body, I’m limited to depicting the beauty of dancers and musicians as they go about their art, so these have become the primary focus of my current body of work. Largely self-taught, I paint mainly in watercolour or oil, although, since living in the region, I’ve been inspired to experiment with different media and styles and to explore a variety of subjects.

Description

It was during this trip, watching and learning and gently guided, that I got the first taste of the wonderful and surprising place that artists go to where self is lost and time loses its edges. I have chased this ever since, plus every now and then I am pleasantly surprised by my paintings. Over the years I have had guidance from artist and teacher Peter Scott and have done several art units at TAFE.
