“Red Hill Gallery artists Nick Olsen, Paul Margocsy, and Adrienne Williams will be sharing a stunning array of new works in our Brisbane Gallery this October. Exploring their distinct ‘habitats’, the artists will be exhibiting vibrant works featuring both natural and suburban scenes. I am delighted to be presenting this unique collection, opening on October 11th and continuing until 27 October 2019. .”
– Gallery Director Margaret Campbell-Ryder
Nick Olsen is a Brisbane artist working with suburban and architectural subject matter. His expert palette truly makes his leisurely local scenes shine, capturing the light, shadow, and quiet spirit of a warm afternoon in Brisbane’s suburbs. Modern, but with a certain air of timelessness, these Olsen pieces will maintain their ‘je ne sais quoi’ for countless years to come.
Appreciative of our feathered and furred friends in the wild, Melbourne’s Paul Margocsy captures the most elegant, playful, and majestic scenes nature has to offer. His fine, painterly technique offers something to appeal to the refined veteran art collector, the adventurous first-time buyer, and all art lovers in between.
Adrienne Williams feels a connection with the quintessential country Australian landscape, which she now finds outside her door, living near Bundaberg. The hazy, stylised work featured in the exhibition explores the fascinating shape and movement of Australia’s unique native trees, creating a dreamlike vision of natural utopia. Teetering on the edge of abstraction, her work expresses poignantly the starkness and wild beauty of natural Australia.
