Angela Buchanan and Edie Chappell
Opens Thursday 30 August 6pm
Two artists combine in this exhibition expressing their diverse creative techniques and subject matter with paint and mixed media. Abstract design by Edie Chappell sits alongside formed designs and clean lines by Angela Buchanan.
In her out-of-world vision, Edie encourages viewers to see, to look and be intrigued by the visions they see. Loving semi abstract landscapes, Edie mixes both smooth work and a chunky look, exploring different subject matters. Edie explains, ‘Art for me is very therapeutic; I love the process, and love seeing the end result. Hours can vanish quickly when I’m in my studio. It’s a continual learning experience; you discover new ways of expressing your feelings when you put them onto paper.’
In this exhibition, Angela Buchanan produces paintings with formed lines and clean designs with a comical edge and local scenic, photographic print works.
Angela established her art career on completing her apprenticeship as a traditional sign writer, making traditional hand painted signs using multiple techniques and in varying and sometimes challenging positions and places. Her canvases include honours boards and window sign painting, airport towers and fixed wing planes.
Angela now paints using her dreams as her main inspiration, focusing on incorporating her brush skills into her artwork.
