'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

A few images from our last opening night Michael Motteram-Smith (Shmick). Great crowd and a great evening of unique artwork by this young artist. Thanks again - Burleigh Brewing Co. for the refreshments and support.
Michael Motteram-Smith (aka Shmick Creations) is a freelance artist from Northern NSW, specialising in large scale murals, illustration, visual art installations and digital design. Through many years and long hours of practice and persistence Shmick's unique style of painting and illustration has really come into its own. He has participated in numerous exhibitions and his work has begun to be recognised internationally.
Following years of perfecting his craft, Shmick's painting is a form of meditation. He channels great thought and creative energy into each piece, showing people something they may have never seen before. He does this through some of the most visually impressive graffiti pieces we’ve seen in a long time, using vibrant colours and shapes to explore deep into his imagination.
OPENING NIGHT // Saturday 3rd June // 6.00 - 9.00PM // WITH SPECIAL GUEST DJ'S
