The new season brings a new twist to some old favourites at the upcoming Spring Salon in Evandale.
Handmark celebrates spring with a bright and beautiful collection of new works. We decided to ask our wonderful stable of artists to produce a “Still Life”. Nick Glade-Wright moves away from his much-loved landscapes that pop with orange and instead presents a series of vivid still-life paintings that echo Matisse.
And, in a dramatic departure from her more realistic banksias, Anna Fitzpatrick also turns to abstract still life to produce three stunning paintings in a cooler palette that appear inspired by Whiteley and Miro.
Other Handmark artists who have enjoyed the challenge of painting a Still Life are, Chantale Delrue, Nathan Grey, Michael McWilliams, Heidi Woodhead and Katy Woodroffe. Tracy Samek whilst going through Tom’s originals also found a wonderful painting, that is perfect for this show.
One of the rooms at the Clarendon Arms will also feature the landscapes of Jeff Gatt. Jeff who hails from the north-east of Tasmania is known for his “Through the Trees” series of paintings. His vivid green and blue hues make these works a pleasure to live with.
Handmark’s Spring Salon pop-up opens at Evandale’s Clarendon Arms Hotel on Friday September 30 from 5pm and runs until October 31
