EXHIBITIONS

Tim Newman
Interplay – Light
27 July – 20 August 2017

Braemar1

The work in this exhibition explores the interaction of light and dark in the landscape. The emphasis is on painting using mixed media in an expressive/abstract style on canvas and paper.

Light only exists when placed against darkness. The interplay between the two is how we see the world. Positive and negative space are equally important yet have very different roles. Our eye is attracted to light. The challenge here is to look beyond the obvious to gain a broader understanding of and fresh insights into our physical and psychological landscape.

Bron Newman
Interplay – Surface
27 July – 20 August 2017

braemar2

Bron Newman’s work focuses on surface; the contrast between the shapes, patterns and textures of nature with the shapes, textures and intricate patterns formed by the built, industrial landscape. Nature is reduced to an almost abstract surface depiction, and the commonplace and ordinary of the built-environment in our landscape takes on another perspective when depicted in different ways. These include a loose and expressive manner to a more structured and representational approach.

Mixed media has been chosen, as well as charcoal and oil, to produce gritty somewhat earthy representations of different aspects of our utilitarian surroundings. Scenes and images that the ordinary viewer would generally pass without noticing, receive a focus that highlights a rugged beauty.

braemar3

The Creative Collective consists of eight professional women, in the teaching and design fields. Over the past year, the group have met regularly in the Blue Mountains, in their homes and surrounds, to bond and encourage each other on their artistic journey. Stories from Leaves shares their discoveries of creative growth and inspired connections with their community. Highlighting natural scenes and textures, each artist has been inspired by the environment and the Blue Mountains community, and has been challenged to find a way to tell her story.

Featuring works by Coleen English-Thomas, Shirley Gavin, Sandi Lucock, Anne McDonald, Jenny Oxley, Susan Ruming, Glenice Ware and Kerrey Williams.
