Griffth University Group ART EXHIBITION at POP gallery in Brisbane


LATEST  NEWS  -  College of Art graduates from 40 years ago share & display their art story 






My works on gallery wall


'Reflections' 1976 acrylic on canvas 162 x 137cm


 

'Salt of the Earth' 2014 Encaustic-Wax on board 40 x 40cm

                                       

'Jack in the Green' 2017 Encaustic-Wax on board 124 x 124cm


My personal response to artistic change is revealed in this exhibition from the Art College painting ‘Reflection’1976  with my connections to corporate life at that time as compared to recent work showing humanity more integral with nature. What has always remained constant is a sense of place using painterly colour and form. During this time my natural curiosity has drove me to explore the creative process with various diverse directions but I returned to mostly painting 10 years ago. Since discovering Encaustic-Wax 5 years ago I have developed various techniques using this ancient & versatile medium with a contemporary feel. I realise as I continue to mature with painting, my expressive style remains the same as 40 years ago and it has given me a real sense of belonging. 

‘Salt of the Earth’ 2014 was the first for a series of work using Encaustic-Wax. It is also a metaphor for the ‘Ebb & Flow’ of life and revealed much about where my heart lies.

Jack in the Green’ 2017 continues my mixed media journey using waxy organic forms combined with figure drawing taking on a personal and ambiguous view. It is typical of my vision where an emotional soul inhabits bringing an inner life to my painting. I allow spontaneous discoveries to appear in the landscape to develop a certain mystery such as this English ‘Green Man’ myth "An icon for respect for our beautiful country and its past but also perhaps a unifying champion for the upcoming environmental battle for its future” - T.L.Coltham
