WINNER - Best New Australian Play Award (Redfest Dramafest 2013)
'KIDS PLAYING SOCCER'
ARTIST: KYM HART
Original Oils on Stretched Canvas
Size: 30 cms x 40 cms
Frame Size: 58cms x 58cms
This piece has you instantly transported to The Australian Outback!
Kym is the second eldest son of Pro Hart, who was considered 'the father of The Australian Outback painting movement'.
Having an internationally recognised artist for a father was a real head start for Kym. Kym enjoyed the ever-changing landscape with the heavy industrial influence of the mines and the tranquility of the Darling River System, adjoining lakes and billabongs which are prominent in many of Kym's paintings.
He has painted a vast amount of subject matter and his ability to paint in so many styles and with different mediums has won him acceptance in many collections over the world.
You can find many of these examples on his website https://kymhart.art

'MIST ON THE BORDER TRACK'
ARTIST: HELEN GRIFFIN
Framed Print Oils on Canvas
Size: 28cms x 28cms
Frame Size: 41cms x 41cms
Let the mist of the Gold Coast Hinterland into your home with this restful piece by Helen Griffin. In the artists words herself:
I works from photographs taken when walking bush tracks, by the ocean and over rocky, dry terrain while at home or abroad. These photographs capture one moment in time. My images are impressionistic - an attempt to capture the transience of the moment and my reaction to that moment.
My choice of colour for the initial 'wash' determines mood, and the speed and urgency of line and pain application are an instinctive effort to capture the immediacy of the moment. When I revisit a landscape I am seeking its essence and in the process a new reality is created.
The reason I paint? It's the turps high, the immediacy of line, the drama of contrast, and my ongoing dalliance with and discovery of colour and texture. And I believe that an artist's work is an artist's statement: it is for others to use the pen and comment if necessary.
