Saturday 7th August – Opening Event – From 2pm
USHA SINGH – Painter
My art is a journey from Darkness to Light. Tracing every ray of light with strokes of colour on a canvas as it comes to life. I pay close attention to detail in the way colour fills up a place or a subject to create a realistic rendition. I paint to capture the fleeting magic of an illuminated space. I find inspiration in wilderness and heritage structures and still life alike often capturing an illuminated perspective which has ruminated and emerged from my creative subconscious. Through my work I want to transpose viewers into the scene and have an emotive experience. To feel what it’s like to be inside a painting and interact with its characters.
MARTIN GARIBAY – Painter
I paint because I have no other choice if I want my life to have purpose. This is a recent discovery for me, a very happy one.
As a painter I like to create paintings with a soul, so connections between a painting and the observer can be made, and emotions can be conveyed. I enjoy the goodness in the world and I don’t enjoy the pain in it bit I know that beauty can be found even amongst ugly and painful things, it’s about perspective.
MARIA GRZYBOWSKI – Painter
Soul & Wilderness – In the modern age of technology we are in a constant hurry, which leaves us detached from nature. My personal experience as an artist living in Australia, has given me the opportunity to create works inspired by local native flora and my garden. The beauty and perfection of the wilderness, innovates the creative flow within my artwork.
The six paintings series “Solitude & Wilderness”, represent my feelings of freedom from daily difficulties and demands and the state of calm and exploration of my inner soul and identity.
We humans can’t separate ourselves from nature, we are part of it.
KAREN BLOOMFIELD – Painter
I believe that my role as an artist is to capture & preserve society in this very moment & to garnish this captured moment with my own filters, wit, emotions & beliefs.
It is in this way I share my vision of how I perceive that simple, mundane, ugly & unexpected things may be viewed to be beautiful or, at the very least, engaging. It is my desire to encourage the growth that comes from seeing more than one viewpoint – in everything.
