Description

It wasn’t until her husband encouraged her to have her first exhibition that she realized this could be more than a hobby. With a history in fashion and textile design Ashleigh loves incorporating these skills into her work. For Ashleigh’s first year of being involved in the Open Studios, she will be working from Mr Barval Fine Wine and Gallery, where visitors are welcome to bring a picnic or buy refreshments onsite.

Description

I have always been drawn to the dramatic landscapes of this beautiful state and retirement gave me the chance to translate this passion onto the canvas. The ever changing moods of nature will never cease to inspire and excite me.

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.

She aims to foster hope, joy and openness and likes to surprise and enrich, to marvel at the small things and to tell stories of layers of life and usage.

Britta invites people to change their consumer’s focus and rethink values by making visible the potential and beauty in the old and the discarded and by connecting viewers with the creative process. She encourages a change of perspective and therewith new experiencing and new possibilities.

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.

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?

Chris Spiker

Enthusiastic collectors of Chris’s watercolours are located throughout Australia and overseas. In 2017 Chris was Artist in Gallery at Aspects of Kings Park for the annual Spring Festival.

Description

Bird watching from a young age in central Victoria; having a natural inclination to paint in watercolours; mixed with working as a design draftsman for many years, led to Chris becoming a fine watercolour artist of birds and landscapes. was trained to use a Crow-Quill pen nib that was just so fine: and it may be that training that stayed with me when even using a fine kolinsky brush decades later.

Each painting is designed to achieve: an attractive picture; technically reliable portrayal of the birds and flora; high quality workmanship; and most importantly to increase appreciation and ultimately the conservation of Western Australian birds.

Along with producing fine art originals, we produce a complimenting range of Limited Edition and Open Prints and greeting cards.

Dariya Gratte

Endlessly inspired by the intricacies of nature; I particularly love the play of light on water and the patterns it creates

Description

Most of my work is created from fine porcelain, which is formed into simple shapes using a pottery wheel. I then carve, etch, paint and draw into the surface of the clay to create detailed designs and patterns.

I love the unlimited possibilities and challenges of working with clay.

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.

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.

Fi Wilkie

Fi Wilkie is a Painter based in Margaret River where she has lived and worked for over 25 years. In addition to spending her time as a full time artist, she works with non artists, lapsed artists and budding artists to develop and engage with their own creative thinking. Her Workshops aim to build confidence, lose fear, and to help the participant get to know more about themselves, how they work and how to listen to their own intuitive selves.

Description

Fi has been busy dreaming, imagining, problem solving and pitching ideas since she was 4. Her usual comment, as a young child, to any loving gift giver was – ‘what other colours did they have’! She has a background in Design and loves colour, shape and pattern.

Her process of creating is always evolving, she starts her work with a big random ‘mess’ and then works how to clarify and ‘find’ the painting within it. It seems to reflect the mess of life, the uncontrollable elements, the parts we need to let go of and just allow. The work of bringing it under control – turning it into something that makes sense is the journey each painting goes thru. Fi never plans her images, she lets them evolve – so she can enjoy the surprise and see what will happen – continuing to work on them until there doesn’t seem to be anything left to do.

Gabe Heussenstamm

Born and bred local, Gabe Heussenstamm has grown up surrounded by art his entire life. It was a natural progression to follow in his families footsteps.

His most recent work has been creating a series of murals in the North-West of W.A. Gabe loves experimenting with many mediums, yet always find a way to incorporate his trusty airbrush. Open studios has given him the inspiration to work in a new direction, focusing on the local flora and fauna that surrounds the beautiful winery, that he and his wife will be temporary setting up during Open Studios.

 

 

Jenny Sanderson

  • 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

Jo Mayo

Originally from a north Essex English village, I am currently in Australia on a working visa. I am proudly a mostly self-taught painter, with life drawing tutoring.

  • Open Days:By Appointment Only

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.

Joanna Alferink

I love being creative! I like spending the spare time I have (when not running around after a toddler) in my studio, mosaicing, painting and sculpting to my heart’s content.

 I am inspired by nature, drawn to its patterns and colours. I love creating bright, colourful and fun pieces that bring a splash of joy to others!

Karin Luciano

Karin’s emotive action style of painting, her use of multi-layering in impasto, free-flowing lines and her trademark silver and gold leaf are instantly recognizable.

Description

“Painting is more than just putting a brush to canvas. It’s a mystical process. It’s about clearing a pure path to your creative truth and allowing the light to channel through into your most powerful expression”.

Multi award-winning artist, Karin Luciano has been painting from the heart with a passion for the past fifteen years. She has held 27 solo exhibitions, operated her own art gallery and exhibited widely within most major Australian cities and internationally.

  • Open Days:By Appointment Only

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”.

Laurie Posa

Laurie is an artist who paints primarily in a surrealist fashion. He has a strong interest in how we as a species fit into the landscape, both physically and emotionally.

Description

Laurie likes to temper these painterly observations with irony and sometimes dark humour, leaving the interpretation of the work to the viewer: for example, a horizon line could be a part of the simple landscape or a plane of your sub-conscious filled with metaphors. Posa's work is held in public and private collections in Australia and overseas.

Leon Pericles

Leon and his wife Moira divide their time between Perth and their studio in Margaret River.

Leon has had over 150 solo exhibitions throughout Australia during his long artistic career and has developed a devoted following of fans who love his unique style and sense of humour. With a strong rural influence to his work as a result of his childhood spent in outback Australia, he covers themes as diverse as history, sailing, fishing and environmental issues.

Martine Perret

French-born Australian photographer based in Margaret River, Martine worked for the UN as full-time peacekeeping mission photographer in conflict zones over ten years in South Sudan, Timor-Leste, DR Congo, Burundi and recently in West Africa during the Ebola crisis.

Since moving to WA in 2014, Martine has launched a photographic exhibition and book titled “Margaret River Region FROM ABOVE”, featuring aerial views of the South West, which is being featured in the Margaret River Gallery. 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.

Maureen Munro

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).

  • Open Days:By Appointment Only

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.
