Debbie Chambers

In Open Studios 2018, I’ve used the creative process to explore the concept of “different minds”. The result is an “art scape” of up cycled works across the studio and property, that provide stories and a narrative exploring the experience of living and coping in a complex world of difference. “Same, same but different” using Mindfulness to view this space well describes what I am grappling with in these works.

  • Open Days/times:BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
  • Galleries:Textiles,Mixed Media,Upcyclng,Artist Studio

Details

  • Open Days:By Appointment Only

Description

My art finds a place as “Quirky”, capturing elements of function and form, imbuing soul, storytelling, sharing new skills and old ways. It is about creative designs using repurposed materials – collecting, finding treasures, exchanging, sharing, using existing resources, making new things from old, and reducing consumption. Most of my work uses the flotsam and jetsam I find around me, for expression and imagery that illustrates what I see and want to express to others.

At Open Studios you will experience colour, light, assemblage, textiles and installations. Throughout the process, I delve into how we can reduce waste, create social networks, build opportunities, and enrich communities to encourage hope, optimism and creativity. Some works are collaborative, some provocative and many I hope are inspiring. Come and spend some time exploring the space. Enjoy the creative design ideas and projects you find, bring a picnic if you like and sit and soak up the works in the bush setting. Join the interactive activities, workshops and events we are planning for all ages over the two weeks of Open Studios…see Ferart Studio website and Facebook page for details.

  • Open Days:By Appointment Only

Description

With her cross-cultural biography, she feels caught between worlds and questions how Polish or German she really is. What and where is home? Not a dot on a map defined by lines and numbers, but a psychological state, something that James Baldwin called an ‘irrevocable condition’.

Elisa relates to Croatian writer Dubravka Ugresic who thinks that memories are where we might live after we’ve lost the real thing. Memories are the closest she has to a home.

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.

Creating with stitch is my passion. Stitching on my photos, or fabrics (including silk, hemp, or recycled upholstery samples, and of course, patchwork fabrics and quilts).

This year I have added printmaking using drypoint and acid etching, and then stitching into the prints. Inspiration is never far away as I continue to pursue my love of our bushland and especially the banksia and grass trees, along with exploring labyrinths and mazes – so many places to get lost and found. I look forward to creating new designs with visitors as we explore part of my digital design program. You will have the option to have ‘your’ design sewn out for you during MRROS into a unique cushion or tote.

The Studio Gallery is a new arts venue in Yallingup presenting leading artists and artisans from around the country. Already in its second year, the Gallery has compiled a diverse list of established artists not only from Western Australia but also a select group from the eastern states.

Our intention is to maintain a fresh and evolving selection of work that will surprise and stimulate our patrons every time they visit the gallery. The design concept by Stephen Coates of aCTa contrasts the texture of Donnybrook stone with a minimalist structure inspired by Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona Pavilion. Beautiful landscaped gardens, designed by a Yallingup landscaper, have created a stunning environment that completes the Gallery’s artistic setting.

The Gallery is complimented by The Studio Bistro; a vibrant arts dining venue that combines continental style cuisine with a warm and friendly atmosphere. Enjoy our award winning bistro style menu, innovative wine list as well as a beautiful range of artworks from leading artists around the country. There's ample space for a long relaxing lunch on the terrace, or you can enjoy some of the best informal dining in the South West with an exciting menu prepared by Executive Chef Blair Allen. 

We are really delighted that The Studio Gallery has emerged as an additional destination for art lovers in the South West.

The key words in my art practice are probably texture and tales I love the visual depth and sculptural aspects of layered mediums and the play of light on surfaces...tactile to the eye.
