Jane Martin, Eveline Kotai & Angela Stewart // New Work
Bringing together the work of three highly accomplished artists, the works in this exhibition are nostalgic, intuitive and unexpected. Traditional approaches to methodology meld with contemporary elements, sharing glimpses into the everyday through detailed still lifes, chiaroscuro treatments and bold colour and patternation combinations.
New paintings that exude the artist's confident depictions of familiar settings, sharing glimpses into the everyday through lively composition, mood and abundant colour.
With a dark velvety palette, reminiscent of the one employed by the artist's muse, Renaissance painter Sofonisba Anguissola, these paintings convey love, joy and loss. The gloss and matte surfaces reflect changeable lighting and moods, as well as the shifting of time where memories flicker and the heart yearns.
Colour fragments sourced from the artist's palette of pre-existing surfaces come together in fresh compositions. The symphonies of intuitive responses can be read as the legends of unknown maps, aerial views of human occupation, or simply as a celebratory diary of colour.
