Finte Art Space Update

I cannot believe there are only weeks to go until we close the doors. It has been such a great gallery space and opportunity to be apart of. So many Brisbane and nearby artists struggle to find affordable space to exhibit their work, so to provide, albeit a short term space, has been incredibly rewarding on a community and business level.
And it has been so lovely to meet so many followers and admirers in person.

However, our last Day will be December 18th.

So make sure you pop in before then, we have some amazing artists still to exhibit, and our side of the gallery, (Melanie Kilby, Tracy Murray and myself) has plenty of original artwork, ceramics and beautiful quality prints available. Perfect for Christmas.

You’ll find us at 37 Latrobe Terrace Paddington Queensland. And bring a furry friend…like Sizzles.

The Nature of Things

The Nature of Things

8 October – 7 November 2021

‘The Nature of Things’ brings together the work of 11 local and interstate artists across the mediums of painting and sculpture.

This exhibition explores our close connection with nature, and how it has offered reprieve from the sometimes chaotic world. The escape into and solace from nature is the central reflection for the artists in this exhibition; the degree of abstraction varies from artist to artist as they draw upon their experiences from their surrounding environments. Whether they are centring in on details, or summarising general impressions left upon them from a particular environment, each artist interprets this theme with consideration and reflection.

Artists: Jackie Anderson (NSW) Sally Browne (NSW) Jo Dyer (VIC) Ian Greig (NSW) Alexandra Hirst (SA) Tiffany Kingston (NSW) Cristina Metelli (SA) Rosetta Santucci (NSW) Tiel Sievl-Keevers (QLD) Claire Yerbury (NSW) Elizabeth Wojciak (SA).

“Words from Art Images Gallery”

Below is a selection of some of the works in the show. Please visit Art Images Gallery to view all of the works I have for this exhibition. Click on each image to see more information.

The selection of works for this show has arisen from three local areas I have been able to visit and explore since Covid 19 travel restrictions have been in place.

The first is Mt Coot-tha here in Brisbane. More like a bump than a mountain, but only a short distance from home where I can walk the many tracks and be surrounded by trees and wildlife. Here I sometimes sketch, but mostly photograph and collect flora from the paths. I often carry them in my hands, feel them, then leave them.

 

The second is my home. The simplicity of my garden, the eucalyptus trees and the river below. The magpies and kookaburras that come to visit us each day.

The third place is in Northern NSW along the beaches and creeks of Bundjalung country where the tides bring in a myriad of ocean flora, and each walk depending on the season brings new treasures.

Each place is a marvel to watch the transition of light and colour, new growth and the often the short existence of life.

Finite Art Space

In June, late June…just over a month ago I received a phone call from a friend who wanted to know if I would start a short term gallery with her and one other local artist.

And I said yes. It has been a crazy busy few weeks, but we did it. We being, Melanie Kilby from Kismet Design and Tracy Murray from Shut Up and Relax.

And so for the next few months we will be showing and selling our work from a cute little worker’s cottage here in Brisbane Queensland. We will also have a line up of artists who will be showing weekly.

It will all go very quickly so do check it out over at instagram

I don’t have a great deal of work in my online shop atm because I just haven’t had the time to add it all there. Photos, uploading etc. For now here are a few of my ceramic items available.

Satellite Show

From my recent involvement in the Found Studio Dog exhibition at Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery, I have also been asked to participate in a satellite show.

From October 1st to 16th at Side Gallery in Brisbane, you can see a number of artist’s works from both regions. As my Sizzles and Sesame painting is still on show up north, I have chosen a collage and some ceramic pieces for this show.

Curated buy Side Gallery and Adrienne Williams.

All works available via the Side Gallery website

 

 

Broken Landscapes: Mixed media collage 83cm x 37cm Framed.

Collaborations

When one artist says to another artist, “Would you like to paint some of my vessels?”

And I say, “Sure!”

So the ceramic artist magically throws some clay to produce these lovely forms and then she says, ” there you go”

And this all happens.

Apart of our exhibition for DUST until May 12th, 2019 Forms by Clairy Laurence, paintings by Tiel Seivl-Keevers

Bellarine

I am updating my website this month. Some of my work is very difficult to capture within the format of a screen. I always photograph work before glass framing, but sometimes I think showing the frame is also important.

If you see any of my works either in the gallery or shop sections that indicate they are framed and there is no photo, please contact me and I will email you a photo.

This is from a series I made in 2018. A series of paper collages. Bellarine will be exhibited at the upcoming DUST exhibition this coming May 3rd in Brisbane. Details here
