Item Details
Sense of Place an exhibition of abstract paintings inspired by the characteristic contours, textures and colours of the landscape that occur in Nature’s cycle of growth and change . Imaginings of tree canopies reaching up to an immense sky whilst aerial roots melt into the undergrowth, twisted trunks turn and weave along the pathways and blooms cluster and disperse – a special theater of Nature’s gardens from which life emerges and then disappears.

A dance with nature

I am a Melbourne artist who loves nature and shares my passion for the natural world through my photography and abstract paintings. Working with the medium of paint, I explore the patterns and colors observed in the landscape. Painting on canvas and paper I work with organic motifs and contours creating translucent veils of colors that run, pool, and bloom, forms that suggest the patterns of nature’s cycle of growth and change. Evocative shapes and patterns are created during the process of painting and manipulation. Overlapping shapes and translucent stains of paint vacillate between the familiar and the unknown connecting with memories and the imagination.. I aim to provide an escape from the real world in my work, a space of contemplation where the ebb and flow of color and form beckon a dialogue with the viewer.
I have been painting professionally since 2007 when I completed a Fine Art Honors degree at RMIT University Melbourne. My abstract and landscape paintings have been shortlisted for a number of national prizes, including recently the John Villiers Outback Art Prize Queensland, and also First prize for the Open Art exhibition at the Frankston Arts Centre, 2017. My works are exhibited regularly in solo exhibitions in Melbourne and regional centers and with the recent Covid lockdown on global virtual platforms. Many of my paintings are held in private and public collections locally and overseas if you are interested in any paintings and would like further information please message me to discuss. I welcome commissions. Shipping from Melbourne to the USA is quite reasonably priced depending on the size of the selected painting and location. Please enjoy the work displayed on Wescover and I look forward to talking with you soon. Wendy
