Description

"I use a range of media, oil sticks, pastels, acrylic and oil paints and paper mache sculpture. My first love is oil sticks and pastels. I use these in my emotional landscapes. These drawings use blending, rhythm and harmonious balance to show you what I feel when I capture a moment in the scenery around me. They evoke rather than provoke, allowing you to to be embraced by the emotion of the moment."

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.

Description

Chloe's current body of work puts a focus on the modern female portrait. In her large scale oil paintings, Chloe attempts to connect with women who display an air of strength and hunts down faces on social media.

It seems a tad odd of her to paint people she doesn’t know and to expect you to be impressed by her renditions of those who mean squat to you, but that is the whole point. What inspires a painter? Can you communicate a feeling? Is it the same feeling for everyone? What is the connection between the artist and the muse? How is that connection forged between people sometimes on opposite sides of the world? What even is a portrait in the era of selfie culture?

Deanne Haddow

Description

Recently I have also been lecturing in textiles and so practice in all three of these disciplines are now encompassed within my current art practice work. My most recent landscape and seascape paintings are investigations of colour, light and movement using watercolour, gouache and resist techniques on paper. I begin each work on site – or en plein air and complete the supplementary layers in the studio. I will always be producing these kinds of works and often paint many small studies when I am travelling and I undertake larger works when working around my home here in the South West.

I have returned to portraiture painting recently with a view to investigating true historical stories from an Australian woman’s viewpoint. Truth can be stranger than fiction they say, and I am often engaged by factual events and in real people and places that have a mythological or histrionic flavour in familiar settings which ring factually true and often remain relevant today as women still fight for equal rights. New technologies allow me to investigate the stories behind the stories within our brief Australian history and I combine the use of layering and collage with papers and articles, photographic images, found fabrics, wallpaper, collage and fine oil painting to fulfil an unfolding narrative. Textiles is an area that I have worked in on and off for 35 years. Pattern in fabric as a historical symbol is often used as a fundamental ingredient in my portrait and collage work along with lace and women’s clothing often forming the foundations of paintings and remaining visible within the layers of paint.

I am also constantly undergoing an exploration of textile colourisation and printing techniques such as tie dye, shibori and indigo dyeing using t-shirts, readymade garments and tote bags as a canvas along with my newest textile skill area- silk screen printing. My art practice is a continuous cycle of influences as I alternate between the areas of painting, textiles and creating visual narratives using collage. My teaching practice and contact with my students, my investigations into Australian history, the beautiful Margaret River environment and my network of artists and artist communities all contribute toward the daily making and thinking and doing that define me as an artist.

Elizabeth Whiteman

Luscious, buttery oils are my medium. Colour is my language. Multi-layered, colour-drenched canvases. I seek to expand my vocabulary and tell stories that move me.

Description

Stories of vulnerability and fragility. How this provokes such a diverse range of human response, from the desire to nurture and protect, to discard as worthless, through to perverse exploitation and abuse for personal gain…

Nudes figure prominently in my paintings – naked, intimate, private. I want to gently peak behind the mask, reveal what’s hidden, raw, laid bare, exposed, both in the subject matter and in the human response. The exposed becomes the exposer.

Emily Jackson

Margaret River artist Emily Jackson draws her inspiration from the local flora and fauna and uses a variety of mediums and methods of printmaking to document these species on paper.

Description

Through my artwork I portray the natural world of Western Australia. My art pays tribute to, and celebrates the living world that nurtures my creativity.

This world sustains my creative impulse, it imbues me with joy and I feel very much part of it, not separate, but intimately connected.

My art is about this connection.

The abstract visual landscapes of my work are location, date and time specific. They capture the living mood of the place, a vignette, a moment in time and place. The aim is to bring the viewer into that moment, place, with all its wonderful nuances, light, plants, animals, landscape - to feel that place, a memory hidden in consciousness.

The images are arranged in multiple layers from my etchings, lino prints, drawings and paintings, to capture the atmosphere of the visual moment.

Emily will be participating in the 2021 Margaret River Region Open Studios. For more information on the opening hours of her studio, visit https://www.mrropenstudios.com.au/member/emily-jackson?rq=Emily%20Jackson.

Description

Painting is all about the process for me. I’m what would be called an intuitive painter. My process typically starts with a random mess of colour and mark making and then I select and activate certain areas to develop my composition. At the start, I don’t know what I will create although I have been working with the same theme of Banksia Bushland for a few years now. My carefully considered shapes and marks are part of my own visual language and all start from close observation using my sketchbook, drawing with a variety of mediums and drawing from memory. I use this reliable process to filter down what I understand about a plant or animal and slowly the way the subject looks - becomes part of my visual alphabet. Starting a painting can be a little scary - so I developed this approach to suit my temperament. I like to take time to play as I paint and to experiment as I go, I also like the surprise that comes at the end when I feel that the work is complete. This is what keeps me coming back to the studio. The not knowing - rather than the knowing.

Fi has a print Gallery upstairs of Mukau Giftware and Gallery in Cowaramup, Open 7 days.

Fi Is participating in the 2021 Margaret River Region Open Studios. For more information on the opening hours of her studio visit: https://www.mrropenstudios.com.au/member/fi-wilkie?rq=Fi%20Wilkie.

“Molly's award-winning original Artist Books are in Private, State, National and International Collections.”

As a previous Restoration Book Binder, and now a professional artist working in diverse disciplines, I still find I am constantly excited about working within the book format. Artist Books (original works of art) with their innate ability to collate, layer and read visual, tactile and emotive information with an intensively explorative visual vocabulary. Using a variety of techniques and mediums together in a structured form that I feel invites and allows one to progress and revisit ideas and images.

This for me is work that inhabits a space between tradition and technology, embracing ages old hand- skills with modern materials, incorporating the sensory qualities of paper and leather. With the layering of materials and textures creating unusual surfaces, integral and so important to my work.

Beginning with archival quality papers then painting or (fine art) printing, gradually working the surfaces abraiding, embossing, cutting, tearing and perhaps adding collage and/or text, in order to tell a story, evoke memories and reflection, visually describing my emotional connection to place, nature and change.

Creating artworks that celebrate craft and tradition but more importantly, those particular qualities of mind, heart and the hand of the maker, that keep this work both anchored and constantly evolving

  • Open Days:By Appointment Only

Description

Travels to Europe and the Middle East in his early days and time spent in Broome and remote W.A. Islands and the Kimberley region has inspired his strong use of colour and semi-abstract style. His continuing inspiration comes from living in Margaret River since 1996, where the local bush and coastal areas feature strongly in his paintings.

The winter getaways driving north to Ningaloo and beyond with his lovely creative partner Anette. A 6-meter roll of canvas, paints, surfboards, fishing lines and supplies for a couple of weeks in the 4WD has always invigorated his creative juices and love of painting in situ. To look at the paintings created up north upon their arrival back to Margaret River takes him back to the place he started the paintings up north and the colour palette used up there are very rich and raw and he generally achieves 4-5 paintings on each trip.

Phil was born and bred in Perth and as a school leaver was offered a position in Diploma of Fine Arts course in 1973, recommended by his art teacher, Nigel Thompson 91997 Archibald Prize Winner). He opted for a plumbing apprenticeship for financial stability. He moved to Broome in 1986 and by 1989 was painting seriously. On his return to Perth in 1991, Phil was accepted into the W.A School of Art –Claremont and began a full-time Art and Design diploma in 1992.

By 1995 Phil became involved in solo and group exhibitions and several art clubs and spent 3 months in Sydney exhibiting work at various markets and galleries. His paintings have been sold to residents throughout Australia and overseas including England, Ireland, Germany, Spain, France, Hong Kong and Singapore. Phil now exhibits and proudly sells his artwork from his studio in the Old Stables at 3 Glenellie Road Margaret River where he has resided since 2001.

He also displays his artworks at various wineries in the region. Phil has been a member of the Margaret River Artisans since 2001 and has had many group exhibitions including Vasse Felix and Leeuwin Estate Winery.
