Kati Thamo

Description

Born in 1956 in Perth, Western Australia, to Hungarian parents, Kati studied art at Edith Cowan University and the Hobart School of Art, majoring in printmaking. Since 1980 she has lived mainly on the far south coast of WA, working from her home studio. The telling of tales has always been integral to her art practice, and she draws on personal stories and incidents along with grander narratives to devise a form of visual fable. Using a cast of characters including animals and objects, her storylines describe the mystery, frailty, hopefulness and anxiety of life. She says, 'I often think of my images as small theatre settings where various dramas are enacted'. Kati's art is often imbued with her Eastern European heritage, and a journey to trace her migrant family's homelands in 2010 is reflected in subsequent exhibitions, and in the development of a series of works.

More recently, Kati has been exploring the natural world, looking at ways to depict the fragility and complexity of natural ecosystems.

Kati's work has been exhibited nationally in both solo and group exhibitions, and is held in numerous private and public art collections in both Australia and overseas.

Description

This fuels my use of up cycled materials as an avenue to create nature inspired sculptures that not only send a message but are aesthetically pleasing. I work in a diverse range of media, namely bronze, cement, timbre, steel and fibreglass. My artwork varies from small gallery size pieces to larger outdoor/indoor works. When creating sculptures, I place emphasis on form, structure, expression of movement and of course the meaning of each piece.

Anita uses colour, texture, pattern and movement, to bring her work to life. She also creates larger-than-life-size dreamcatchers, and was a finalist in the Castaways Sculpture Awards (Rockingham) last year.

There are a lot of things that make her heart sing, but beauty is the common thread. She creates beauty in order to be surrounded by beauty.

Anita prefers to work in acrylics, beginning each project with a beautiful word or affirmation in mind, and letting that vibration infuse itself into each piece.

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.

Carmen Mcfaull

Description

Painting is as much a part of my life as eating or resting. Even though I have intention when I begin a new piece, I allow the painting to have a say. There is a great deal of problem solving that goes on but challenge brings growth, satisfaction and endless inspiration and hopefully a positive emotional response from the viewer. 

I run group workshops in pastel, acrylic and oils at my studio gallery, as well as for art societies throughout Australia.

Artist Statement
The nature of paint as a substance and painting as an act is most alluring to me. As an abstract expressionist and process-driven painter I mix pigmented substances, exploring them as elemental and reactive. Facilitating the process with experience and intuition, my work is a recording of natural forces and processes, such as density and flow in response to gravity, elemental exposure and chemical reaction. I encourage paint to behave and express due to circumstances.

Because these principles are universal the result is somehow recognizable; such as cloud formations, aerial landscapes, cosmic macrocosms and cellular microcosms. When painting I am revealing a process that tells a story – a visual dialogue.

These painterly happenings at play on the canvas, invoke a desire to reach and touch, respond and engage; and to celebrate the intimacies it brings. The experience results therefore in something sensory. I invite you to trust your response as authentic and valid. I believe the work is given unique expression under your regard and that is exciting!

I create images so that beautiful things don’t disappear.I am inspired by the history scattered on the outskirts of towns; the old homesteads and machinery crumbling away, the rust and peeling paint and pre-loved gardens.

Description

For, after securing my loving father and my adventurous mother, my gift: to enjoy to make pictures and to frolic around with colour and shapes. Doing so, brings me much satisfaction and joy.

I graduated from Sydney’s City Art Institute, with a BA in 1984. Since then I've been working as an artist, illustrator and teacher, mostly using water colour and ink on paper and acrylic on canvas.

I like to start with a theme or an idea and then see where it takes me. It is always a surprise to see what happens when I get out of my own way.

Cecile Rigoli

I like building art within the art, completing what's existing, bringing the common into a new world.

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.

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

Details

  • Open Days:By Appointment Only

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.

Christine Cresswell

Influenced by my grandmother - a keen gardener, plant lover and painter of wildflowers - I have created a collection of botanical watercolours of both exotic and native plants of this area.

Christine has always been a keen gardener and in the last ten years has developed an interest in painting the plants that she finds in her garden. Having undertaken the Master Gardener course at Burnley in Melbourne and Botanical Illustration courses at the Royal Botanic Gardens, her special interest lies in capturing, in complete detail, the characteristics of the plants that she is painting. In addition, she likes to draw the plants at different stages of seasonal development as they go from bud to flower to seed.

Christopher Young

  • 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.

Colin Pratt

Colin has been experimenting with encaustic painting since 2000 and has been captivated by its possibilities and challenges.
