STEVEN POOLEY - 'The art works I create are an interpretation of place and time, with the strident colours, planes and shapes intended to produce an emotional response.' Steven's background in interior and furniture design lend his fremantle urban street scapes and vibrant rottnest works a uniquely structural feel. Heightened colour and spirited lines echo French Fauvism and David Hockney, Steven is also influenced by the Canadian Group of Seven's translation of extreme landscapes. His acrylic practice has evolve over 8 years from smaller canvases to larger studio-based works, painting from within the landscape wherever possible - 'I never feel more alive than when experiencing our natural environment through en plein air painting.' SP @steven_pooley_art TAHNEE ROBINSON - Tahnee has drawn inspiration from aerial photography for this series with experimental brushed and poured glazes emulating the wash of waves along the coast. She finds parallels between the tides and her own creative process; 'I am drawn to colours inspired by the West Australian landscape and ocean. Generally, there are two sides of my work. There’s the clean lines, bold forms, functional side, and then there is the tangible, earthy, handmade and somewhat organic side. I do like to make sure my pieces are unique and feel/look handmade. I hope they have that thing about them that is hard to describe but makes you know they are individually crafted by a person, not a machine.' TR JO MEREDITH - 'Painting teaches me about myself again and again, each creative outpour though familiar is a different experience, like visiting your favourite beach in all forms of weather. Swimming makes me feel alive and painting our coast a rich immersion in something I truly love.' Jo's love of the local WA landscape continues with works that revel in WA's colours, from dusk in Floreat to bright mornings swimming in pristine Rottnest bays. Her oil painting practice has deepened with vibrant chunks of colour, sweeping across the canvas with a wave like rhythm - 'I love the challenge of painting water, creating waves and ripples by guiding paint back and forth, lapping over itself and picking up flecks of paint from layers below, always moving like the tides themselves' JM @jomeredithart *for further info contact or 0439 918 010

Artists of Ampilatwatja | Welcome to Paradise

‘Welcome to Paradise ’ reveals the traditional country of Alyawarr people of Central Australia. The community of Ampilatwatja is north-east from Alice Springs, and its art centre has operated there since 1999. The paintings focus on the landscapes of locations that form the ancestral grounds of the people. Many artists depict Arreth, the bush medicine plants traditionally harvested by the people. The reflections of the artists and the on-going ties to the land are seen in the paintings, which are formed by the use of tiny dots that create the features of the country. Traditional knowledge is viewed through the lens of appropriate standing of the individual, with stories reserved for the initiated in customary law, and stories appropriate for wider exposure to the outside world. The artists are bound by these laws and so can reveal some aspects of their country and customs, while with-holding other aspects as part of the restricted knowledge of their country. These beautiful landscape images of Alyawarr country are on view at Japingka Gallery from 23 March until 16 May 2018.

Warakurna Artists Welcome to Paradise

Warakurna artist Eunice Porter Yunurupa says, “We’re painting about our country, our home. About the places we go hunting, and where we were born. These places are like paradise to us.” Gallery1 exhibition features work from Warakurna community located near the Rawlinson Ranges on Ngaanyatjarra lands in Western Australia, close to the Northern Territory border. For these artists the role of the art centre is to contribute to cultural maintenance. They want to ensure that traditional practices and culture are kept alive and strong. This provides an avenue for educating younger people through stories and paintings, passing down important Tjukurrpa and culture. Warakurna art centre opened in 2005 and now provides art support for artists at communities of Wanarn and Patjarr. The exhibition along with work by Artists of Ampilatwatja is on display at Japingka Gallery from 23 March to 16 May and the gallery is open daily but closes on public holidays.
