Bethany Treanor

An emerging artist and full time visual arts student, I strive to to be sustainable by using recycled, reusable and up cycled materials, and when needed, I source new materials locally.

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.

Britta Sorensen

Contemporary Textile Art and Experiential Installations using recycled and found materials/objects Britta's mission and message is to celebrate life and creativity and to instigate experiencing and sharing.

Description

Being a professionnel picture framer gives me the chance to meet many artists, art lovers and creative people and I often have to answer The question "are you an artist yourself ? " My truthful answer would be that I like telling stories through various forms of art, mixing a range of media and poetry. 

Chloe Wilder

Chloe Wilder is yet another Margaret River blow in from a small and extraordinarily exotic country off the East coast of Australia.

Description

Her current body of work is focusing 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?

David Galloway

In the past Open Studios exhibitions, my work focused on creating narrative rich, household furniture and objects made from up-cycled materials. In 2018, I am stepping from looking at the things that surround people and make their lives rich and livable, to looking at how to enrich people’s identity in the context of their community and culture. This shift is accompanied by a considerable increase in the size of the works.

Description

Working with the concept of “different minds”, I’m developing interactive sculptural installations and collaborations across the 4ha of the Ferart Studio property.

My art practice seeks to create narrative rich pieces that investigate the integration of scientific, rational and economic activity; with the ecological, communal, intuitive and sensual aspects of human culture. It places a strong emphasis on inviting people to live more rich and interesting lives.

During Open Studios there will be collaborative activities and events for all ages, see the Ferart Studio website and Facebook page for details.

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.

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.

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.

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.

  • Open Days:By Appointment Only

Description

A ‘love of lines’ (remanent from her 25yr career in drafting) but still aparent to her in the vineyards, and also now appearing very significantly in her minimalistic style of life drawing, evokes emotion and atmosphere. A recent trip to India now adds ‘colour’ to the mix!

Jenny produces a wide range of work for which she has won numerous awards. Her work can be viewed at Xanadu Winery and Jahroc Galleries

Description

In Margaret River, I joined Riversong and two local Baroque Trios. Seven years ago, my Australian close artist friend introduced me to a local art group.  This led to three years of life drawing classes, completing commissions, group and solo exhibitions in the UK and Netherlands.

I experimentally paint anything from abstract, impressionistic styles to bold figurative art, in many media, drawing some inspiration from travels throughout Europe, the UK, Zanzibar and Thailand.

Jonathon Thwaites

Jonathon explores the inner Universe outwardly, using found materials to mimic patterns of natural environments. He externalises the internal, bringing the soul (as pattern) as it is manifest in the material world, to focus to elucidate the inner soulfulness of our material world.

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”.

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.

A more recent project, titled “Ngala Wongga” (‘come talk’) examines the cultural significance of languages in the Goldfields, the interconnectedness of people with the land and the culture and identity expressed with languages that today are considered endangered. Her latest book, Beyond, goes further afield to explore the Goldfields-Esperance, Gascoyne, Mid West and Kimberley regions from the air.

Description

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.

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.

She wants to share her love of this beautiful area by creating paintings that celebrate the culture and landscape: be it grapevines, hearing the sound of a waterfall, seeing the tall stand of trees creating rhythm and repetition in a forest setting, seeing the waves rolling in, tasting that first sip of opulent, silky red or seeing whales playing in the ocean. Skye says that “the hours disappear when I have a brush or pen in my hand and I am doing what I love.”

Since the opening of the Open Studios, much of my time and energy is spent thinking, dreaming, observing, experimenting and producing art work for this annual event.

I am often looking for what I call ‘unusual beauty’ and recently I have become more aware of the’ feeling’ of landscape having walked many long distant trails where I have felt a deep connection to the land.
