Danka Scholtz-von-Lorenz : The Pod

The Pod, ripe with seeds, is to honour nature’s resilience and determination to return. It refuses to be destroyed, in spite of natural disasters – be it bush fires or drought – and, sadly, all too evident humanity’s disregard for the sanctity of all life.

Leanne White : Awash

Awash' In the last light of day, can you hear the wind out at sea? Sink into the sand, see the sky? Feel the pulse of nature wild and free? I gave the paint a freedom of it’s own to create the energy, movement and power of the ocean by building multilayered impasto textures of […]

Sally Worth : Fireground

Fires are often devastating events, and images of bushfires in particular reflect the violence and destructive power of flames searing the landscape. But there is frequently a point, when the flames have died down and the smoke begins to lift, when, in the silence and amongst the ash and remnant trees, there is a patina […]

Joanne Duffy : Journey

Real and imagined. In our predominantly flat state, any hill, rise or range adds an dynamic view of our landscape. In "Journey", this ascending structure is part of the Stirling ranges.

Elizabeth Royce : Melaleuca Gracetown

I have had a longtime visual love affair with this coastal tree form.Its bendy twisty repeating linear horizontal slant creating at once a place of shelter from a stormy blast but also maybe the starting point for some spooky gothic tale... magical mystical and spattered with sea foam..... finally becoming an inspiration for this artwork.

Hannah Wainwright : Imagination Land

The act of imagination opens us to endless possible vistas. It challenges our fundamental beliefs, expands horizons and alters preconceived reality. If they need, ones life can be changed by imagining, feeling and acting. Art is many a thing and for me it is to exercise the ineffable imaginative capacity we behold. Generally speaking as […]

"Ever Yours, Alice" captures a fleeting moment of a storm ripping across the sea.

Robin Bigwood : Cathedral

The South West has some incredible scenery. For me there are local environments that evoke a spiritual or transcendental experience - one created by awe of nature or of nature shrouding man made structures.

Kennedy Range during springtime - a vast dry claypan - a symphony of colour – a generational story. Midmorning light intensifies the colours into a beautiful rich glow.

I thought about how the landforms that we see are carved out by the elements over millions […]

The painting is from a morning walk in Quindalup. Like notes on sheet music, the galahs dot the power lines overhead.

MANDY WHITE : Bathers Beach

Working flat on the table, with an energetic brush stroke or texta in hand, Mandy White’s artworks are gestural and sensitive.
