Our first exhibition for 2018 is by local artist Sue Holm. Sue has exhibited twice before in Gallery Tasmania over the past 5 years and her work is always well received (and sells very fast!)
About the artist in her own words:
In late 2011, after a long career in teaching Visual Arts and Photography, I decided it was now time to foster my own creativity.
I exhibit works in a variety of media including acrylics, watercolour, mixed media, drawing and assemblage sculpture.
They are responses to sights, colours, textures, and materials. Even fanciful imaginings, such as soaring over the landscape in my mind’s eye or remembering how something made me feel or how it might have triggered a deeply held memory.
As a sculptor, some of my materials are unconventional and might be found more readily on a building site than in an artist’s studio. I also love to use found or discarded objects for their inherently distressed qualities.
As a painter I love to work in broad areas of colour and then over-work the surface with line etc. The joy of painting is derived from the very qualities of the paint itself.
My aim is to create images, not pictures.
Sue regularly exhibits with the Art Society of Tasmania at the Lady Franklin Gallery, Hobart as well as ONTRAK Gallery and The Working Art Space at Sheffield, Tasmania and Blue Apple Gallery in East Devonport. Her works are held in private collections in Tasmania, Victoria and New South Wales.
Come and meet Sue in the Gallery for a Meet'n'Greet on 21st January 2018 at 2pm.
