Regina Noakes, a significant Australian artist who is internationally recognised, is exhibiting her latest collection of paintings at Red Hill Gallery, Brisbane March 2019.
An award-winning, well-travelled and experienced artist, Noakes’ career spans over 21 years and more than 45 solo exhibitions. Her work has been featured in Australia, Italy, USA and Malaysia.
“My work deals a lot with identity and the figures search to find themselves, as mothers, as women, as children, as artists. The women in our family constantly recall memories and stories from the past and ‘dreaming’ is very much encouraged.
“I draw and paint from imagination, instead of from life, as this gives me a freedom to express and explore ideas and themes. My work is often large-scale, brightly coloured with primal and primitive compositions with their motifs and content invariably overshadowing discussion of their formal properties. I come from Romanesque and Mughal heritage and this too permeates my work” said Noakes.
Red Hill Gallery is pleased to present this outstanding collection of new paintings by Regina Noakes and to offer art enthusiasts the unique opportunity to view and own paintings of this remarkable narrative quality.
