    Artist Statement

    Painting enables me to address some of the big issues of life and question our understanding of universal truths. I strive to construct an aesthetic in my paintings that will satisfy me and engage the viewer. Ultimately I want to invite people to read the works privately by putting them in touch with something that they have experienced in their own lives. I also want to share my vision of the world so that others might recognize something that they otherwise might not have noticed.

    Artist statement
    new paintings
    Summer; the heat, the light
    Light has always been a prominent influence on my painting. I had
    always wanted to paint the Western Australian landscape during the
    seasonal changes capturing its nuances. This series of paintings
    developed from that idea.
    My awareness of the environment grew as I explored light and colour;
    leaves on the trees, the sun as it rises higher or lower in the sky during
    the course of the day and the atmosphere as it creates memories that
    remain, however dwarfed by the reality of what was once all in a day’s
    passing.

    view details

    The artworks in this exhibition are the result of the time Shayne O’Donnell spent on the site of the historic Guildford Hotel, which was gutted by fire in 2008.

    Salvaging material found in the ruins Shayne has constructed images from the substance of the subject itself. Using powdered brick, charcoal and pressed tin she documents the saga of the Guildford Hotel and its impact on her community.

    “Place gives way to space and takes on a different significance after loss. A power more potent than before as memories and hope lay together in the rubble.” -artist Shayne O’Donnell

    Shayne O’Donnell has been a practising artist for thirty years; she is based in Perth and is a Masters graduate from Curtin University. Her work is held in numerous private and public collections.

    A mixture of classic and contemporary, Sense of Place is the current exhibition at Harvison Gallery. Curated by us, it features famous Indigenous artists such as Katjarra Butler, Nellie Gordon and Julie Dowling. In the café area the work of Victoria Watts is featured, including the magnificent Modernist Icon fresh from its victory in the Black Swan Heritage Prize 2014.

    United thematically, these works tell stories of particular places, at particular times and the human interaction with them.

    We have also kept the last four Nigel Sense pieces up, as a tribute to his success in this place and for anyone who may have missed all the fuss.

    Bricks and Mortar
    Feb 13 - Mar 06, 2015
    view details

    Nigel Sense’s solo exhibition Bricks and Mortar features paintings from the ‘Servo’ flower series, as well as iconic houses and apartment blocks from the suburbs. The ‘Servo’ flowers are flowers from a petrol station, the ones people buy when they know they’re in trouble… but unable to arrange anything else. They’re an Aussie apology. Flowers from a petrol station don’t last long and are usually on their way out with only a few beautiful days left.

    Nigel Sense is an Australian pop artist who uses bold colour and bold humour to explore the Australian psyche and examine notions held in Australian society. Like the 1960’s pop artists he turns mass reproduction and the pervasive influence of mass media into subject matter for his work. Nigel is based in Sydney and has exhibited widely there and in Sri Lanka.

    His exhibition and visit to Perth coincides with the launch of a Limited Edition Sparkling Rose in collaboration with La Vigna wines, which features one of his recent works, Taped the football match over Dirty Dancing, on the label. This is the wine that you give…to express love, as an apology or to say ‘thank you’.

    Growth Patterns
    Nov 28 - Dec 16, 2014
    view details

    Growth Patterns is a new series of works that retain the circle motif as a major component of interest. Boundaries, borders and barriers are explored in fine lines, organic geometry and colour contrast.
    Beautifully constructed facades contain elements of chaos, perhaps fears and issues we don’t understand. While self-imposed walls shelter, they also limit possibilities for growth.
    The barrier is the fine line of separation between protection and restriction. The illusion of depth, where there is none, is an insightful metaphor for our times.

    For the first time, this exhibition includes two major, large scale works that are suitable for display in a private business context or public space.

    Graham Stove is a Perth based artist with a background in graphic design, fabrics and textile. He has a BA in Fine Art from Curtin University.

    Graham has lectured in drawing and design and has exhibited extensively since 1993. His work is held in numerous public collections.

    Julie Dowling has an international reputation as an artist who challenges established versions of Australian history. Her paintings subvert stereotypical perceptions of Indigenous people and serve as a reminder to respect their complex and diverse culture. She records personal histories and perspectives overlooked by colonial tradition.

    This important exhibition features new work that considers, for the first time in painting, the connection between Julie’s Badimaya family and her Noongar family. Extended family associations are an integral part of Indigenous culture and the paintings explore these complex relationships from a personal perspective. Many of the works examine narratives of Indigenous people interacting with the City of Perth, some for the first time after being excluded until 1954.

    East to West
    Oct 10 - Oct 28, 2014
    view details

    Rachel Fairfax is a Sydney based artist who grew up in the Forster/Tuncurry area of NSW. She studied at the National Art School in east Sydney, where she now lectures in painting and drawing, and her CV contains an impressive list of scholarships, residencies and prizes.

    East to West is a collection of paintings and ceramics which depict the Australian landscape from the East Coast, moving west into the Northern Territory. The ocean plays an important part in Rachel’s life, childhood impressions and daily visits as an adult providing inspiration for her ocean scenes that are based around the Coogee and Tuncurry areas.  Rachel’s inland paintings and ceramics of the Larapinta Trail were inspired by two artist group expeditions to the region. There was so much to capture there that Rachel got car sick from sketching as they drove. She captures the distinctive landscape and its changeable atmosphere through layers of colour, emphasising the vibrancy of midday in the outback or the subdued tones of evening. Rachel refines her paintings in the studio from her drawings and en plein air paintings done on site.

    Landscape, Sea and Beyond
    Sep 07 - Sep 28, 2014
    view details

    Artist statement:

    Through the use of light and colour I work towards a certain vision of the world. This is a transformative vision and reveals the magic and spirit of the land. Much of my work deals with landscape images from Australia, Ireland and the British Isles and visits to Britain have  inspired a number of landscape paintings. Many of the places I paint will perhaps not exist in years to come and preservation of these areas is, for me, very important. The special significance of the landscape is reflected in the fairy tales, ghost stories and myths of this isle and my art links in with these to create a symbolic and metaphorical language. Forests, fields, hedgerows, ruins, waterways and oceans feature strongly in my recent works and figurative images are integrated into landscape forms which create works of imaginative power. The philosophy behind the artwork comes from the ancient pagan religions of the British Isles combined with, and contrasting with, Christian iconography. In many of the works there is an investigation into the part faith plays in our existence, whether it be religious or otherwise.

    Robert Gear

    Artist Statement

    “Painting allows me the freedom to make sense of my world by working in a representational style.

    Different aspects of the landscape appear in my paintings. The Swan River, Perth, The Narrows, and Albany are some of the places that are connected to my formative years. My memory of those places calls me to revisit and rediscover their portents and power.

    I don’t try to simply represent scenes. I seek to restore my view of the world in a new light, constructing and weaving different elements together to satisfy aesthetic and emotional intentions. Painting enables me to address some of the big issues of life and question our understanding of universal truths.

    Commonplace objects find their way into my work…usually isolated in sparse environments. I use light to illuminate the objects and manipulate the compositions by strong contrast of dark and light. Light has many interpretations…divine truth, illumination of the soul, and a way of seeing.”

    Animals on Show
    Sep 29 - Oct 16, 2013
    view details

    Rachel is a Sydney based artist, living and working near the ocean in Coogee and Wollongong. She studied at the National Art School completing both a Fine Arts Degree in Painting and an Honours Degree in Drawing.  Since graduating in 2003, Rachel has been exhibiting in commercial galleries in Sydney and interstate, as a solo artist and in group exhibitions, as well as taking part in artist residency projects.

    Rachel describes her art as figurative and representational, heading into forms of abstraction.

    This exhibition is called Animals on Show and includes paintings of birds, rural livestock, and dogs taken from her drawings done at the Royal Easter Show in Sydney.

    Rachel comments

    ‘I drew at the Easter Show, firstly because I loved seeing all the country animals come to the city, and secondly the animals weren’t moving!

    The animals were drawn at the show and then the drawings taken back to the studio to be developed into the paintings in this body of work.

    I love to draw the different forms of their bodies, the colours of their fur and their feathers.  They curl up around each other in their cages or lie very still sleeping in the heat and it gives you a chance to capture their form and structure. Drawing from life captures more spontaneity and energy of the animals and their surroundings.

    Birds are beautiful subjects to paint.  They are symbols I use to represent many themes such as fertility, renewal, regeneration, spirituality, happiness and sexuality in my work.

    I’m not trying to create perfect scientific replicas of the animals and birds in these drawings and paintings.  I am interested in creating a work that is about the animals’ or birds’ personality, energy and feeling rather than finding exact realism.  My work is more about feeling than correctness.

    Often the animal or birds will stare straight back at you while you’re drawing them for long periods of time, almost like they know you need them to be still.  Sometimes they show off and start performing, particularly some of the Parrots, Cockatoos and Budgerigars….they are pretty cheeky. Most of the time, their owners are very proud to be showing their animals and love you to draw them. ‘

    Light of India statement

    Exhibition Opens : Sunday August 18 2013 @ 2pm

     

    This collection, ‘Light of India’ is based on my recent travels to southern India and Rajasthan.
    It is a pictorial essay of locations and experiences that have inspired me then and continue to do so…. for instance, the timelessness of walking into the Minakshi Sundareshvara temple in Madurai – a site with a sensory overload of architecture, artifacts, statues, incense and ritual.

    Likewise, the intoxicating beauty of the Kerala backwaters resulted in my ‘Kerala reflection’ painting.

    The architecture and colours of Rajasthan are unique to this world. Bundi one of the ‘Blue towns’ of Rajasthan, was equally inspiring – from it’s imposing but decaying fort-palace to it’s narrow, winding alleyways.

    For me painting is a sensory, physical experience. I attempt to re-connect with the subject matter with each painting and capture it’s essence. My love of colour was rewarded tenfold by my travels to India.

    Drawing is a more direct experience, it is something that I enjoy immensely and it provides the best means of venturing into a new body of work. Naturally they were the earliest pieces completed for this collection.

    “In my art practice all medium sI use are water based. Reasons for this vary from environmental issues to states of workability with the acrylic mediums. Surface also vary from paper through to board. Working with these different surfaces requires changing approaches and techniques to suit these different qualities which adds more depth and interest to ones practice.

    The key themes in my work are growth and transformation. Inspiration comes in many forms such as natural history, anthropology, geometry and surface decoration.

    One of my major aims is to achieve a greater quality of depth and the visual illusion of three dimension in my paintings.”

    Artist Statement

     

    Painting allows me the freedom to make sense of my world by working in a representational style. Several major themes recur in my work. The impermanent nature of our lives is prominent. Our time is short and I’m conscious and curious about how life deconstructs and how things in general always return to the earth.

    Different aspects of the landscape appear in my paintings. These are places that I frequent and are significant to me. TheSwanRiver,KingsPark, my property in Wattle Grove,Albany…They provide the means to create works that reflect my internal landscape. I don’t try to simply represent places. I construct and weave different elements together to satisfy aesthetic and intrinsic intentions.

    Commonplace objects find their way into my work. I use light to illuminate the objects and manipulate the compositions by strong contrast of dark and light. Light has many interpretations…divine truth, illumination of the soul, and a way of seeing.

    Artist Statement

    Urban sanctum, on first impression, depicts sanctuaries set amongst busy, sometimes intense, urban landscapes.
    Travel to some of the great and smaller cities of the world has allowed me the opportunity to explore and document them. It is always enjoyable to walk and discover peaceful promenades, enclaves and niches set amongst some of the busiest urban environments. These are places to rest and reminisce.
    My paintings for Urban Sanctum can also be interpreted as metaphor to our busy lives, when we rediscover a state of mind that comforts and feeds the soul. It is about enjoying the moment to contemplate, daydream….. and imagine.
