April is set to intrigue at Red Hill Gallery, Musgrave Road, Brisbane; with a tantalising exhibition titled “Deserted Wilderness” that features artworks by Adrienne Williams, Terry Swann and Pam Walpole. Opening on Friday 13th of April 2018 this intriguing trio of artists brings an array of different perspectives and styles to the gallery, each creating captivating landscapes that art lovers are bound to get lost in.
Adrienne WILLIAMS embarks on a new body of work with her latest collection ‘Saturday Morning Fever’; following a move to the seaside her work has taken a new direction. Utilising traditional landscape painting elements and maintaining Plein Air sketching as an integral part of her work, Williams creates intriguing colourist compositions. These compositions explore the relationship between wild places and altered landscapes.
Terry SWANN is a contemporary landscape watercolourist, her paintings are an exploration of place and take the viewer on a journey into landscape. Swann captures the essence of the landscape by drawing on the connection she feels to the land in Australia’s remote areas. Engaging with Plein Air techniques and painting in the moment, Swann allows each artwork to take on a life of its own as she drives emotions through it.
Pam WALPOLE’s works are comprised of bold gestures in a minimalistic contemporary style and are always all about the landscape. Walpole portrays the patterns and reflections of natural landscapes such as bushlands, waterways, creeks and coastal inlets. She is often inspired by features in the landscape that are by-products of bushfires, floods, coastal erosion or man-made destruction.
From the rugged and harsh terrain of the desert, the wild and lush scenery of the bush, and the calming coastal waters by the sea; ‘Deserted Wilderness’ captures the exploration of Australia’s diverse landscapes through the eyes of Adrienne Williams, Terry Swann and Pam Walpole.
“Deserted Wilderness” will conclude on Sunday April 29 2018. Red Hill Gallery is thrilled to be showcasing the artwork of three very talented women. If you’re a Brisbane local or visiting the South East over Easter or for the Commonwealth Games, make sure you drop in.
