Open Studio Collective 2019 Artists

Anthea Fitzhardinge

"Since graduating in Fine Art from Curtin University I have always been passionate about drawing and painting. Firstly, the power of mark-making and, secondly, the love affair between the brush and the canvas. I mostly paint with acrylic paint on canvas, but also have a fascination with indigo dyes on fabric. To capture the movement of a wave or the light on water is something I never tire of. Living in this beautiful coastal town with its unique places and community constantly provides inspiration for my subject matter.”  

Noela O’Keefe

“My journey as an artist began many years ago, with a needle, thread and lots of fabric. I find myself now with brushes, pallet knives and canvases surrounding me rather than bolts of fabric. It is not my wish to reproduce what I see - nature is perfect already. I prefer to capture a feeling, a moment and bring that to life to enjoy for all of time. I endeavor to interpret the shapes and colours that surround me in my environment I have for all of my life been drawn to the Australian Impressionists. The likes of Roberts, McCubbin, Streeton, Condor and Sutherland and without realising it, that is the style my art naturally goes to. I have spent the last year using cold wax as a medium mixed with oil with, I think, fabulous results. I am now endeavoring to learn the gentle art of water colour.”

Chelsea Turner

"There are two main elements that are important to my art practice. These are the process of physically creating and constructing the artworks, and the communication of stories, journeys and emotion. The art I create originates from my response to significant events and experiences that have occurred in my life, and the emotions, thoughts and understandings I have around these events. I explore themes such as loss of innocence, identity, dignity, not feeling safe in the world and recently, life patterns. As I bring my art works together I may represent a concept that is repeated within the art piece, I may represent an entire story or just one idea. I do this through the use of a variety of mediums because the meaning within the artwork dictates the imagery and how it will be created."

Tiny Shops on Wheels
