Northern NSW Artist Tesse Terrell debuted her first solo exhibition ‘Death Collection’ and guess what?.. It was also Halloween!!
Inspired by her lifelong passion for Mexican culture and arts, Terrell draws inspiration from the Mexican Dia de Muertos, commonly known as Day of the Dead, and presented a curated line-up of artists that passed away during 2016 and 2017.
A passionate painter, Terrell’s first solo exhibition expanded on her signature style, a combination of painted timber and mixed media, finished in a 3D setting. Each artist is completed in infinite detail and depth, credit to Terrell’s fine style and attention to detail.
Leonard Cohen, Prince and David Bowie are part of the 20-piece collection that celebrates these iconic artists. Terrell’s portrayal of each artist is authentic, light-hearted and voices true respect to the talent they were and clearly represents the impression they’ve made on her as an artist.
Tesse Terrell’s Death Collection exhibition ran from 21 st October to November 4th with an almost sell out show! Congratulations Tesse.
'Grounding' is the second solo exhibition from Cabarita based landscape painter, Dylan Cooper.
The series features his characteristic representation of rock formations but there has been a shift. Light floods dark places and a vibrant colour palette allows us to see the playful side of otherwise intimidating compositions.
Grounding takes a tour around the Giraween National Park, Queensland. Dylan uses multiple layers of mixed media on canvas. His pieces range from moody and desolate to vibrant and even calming. He allows light to play through the scene even in the darkest of settings. Through the use of palette knives, bold brushstrokes and rendering, he creates scenes that are texturally rich.
Dylans works invite you to pause and take in the scene as a whole, but also to step in and discover the secrets these monolithic formations hold.
Please join us for the Opening Night; 30th September from 6-9PM
Beverages will be supplied by Burleigh Brewing Co
