Red Hill Gallery presents the talents of four diverse leading ladies for their final exhibition for the year. Collectively their creative artwork is innovative and refreshingly evocative. The exhibition “Kaleidoscope of Colour” opens at Red Hill Gallery on Friday 2 December 2016.
Christine Reilly is a respected and imaginative Queensland artist, who strives to portray her evocative images with colour and movement, making them come alive on the canvas. Her work demonstrates a long-held love of travel, people-watching, local city scenes and beachscapes. It chronicles not only the progression of her subjects and style but also her own journey as an artist and woman.
Larissa Blake creates vibrant and energetic works inspired by the everyday, her love of travel and interiors. Larissa was exposed to Art from early childhood through her mother, professional artist, Loretta Blake. Her work references the domestic and feminine domains in a celebratory context, using an exuberant, joyful, uplifting colour palette.
Loretta Blake whose passion is classic art, has had a distinguished career in Australia and overseas, working in oils as well as water based paints. Flowers, a first love of subject matter, gradually gave way to the exploration of people and landscape, whilst still expressing vibrancy and spontaneity.
Karen Atkins is constantly amazed by possibilities, enormous skies, sumptuous colours and extraordinary relationships between people, animals, land and art. Karen’s paintings evolve from experiences and observations and explore, with romance and whimsy, the places our choices may take us.
“Throughout our 30th Anniversary year, we have been privileged to present some outstanding Art Exhibitions from our wonderful stable of Artists. Thank you for joining us on this journey.”
