New Artist - Rebecca Cooke

Rebecca Cooke is a South Australian visual artist/contemporary painter living in the Adelaide Hills. Inspired by the natural world she  creates art that depicts an interpretive style: pattern, colour, flora and fauna. " My paintings celebrate nature and my own fascination with pattern design and global traditional arts and crafts. A background in graphic design informs my approach and illustrative elements. Trees, hills, sky, waterways and animal forms are rendered in acrylic paint, with details given a decorative quality - through the added influence of motifs, patterns, repetition of shapes and colour. At the centre of each painting is the bird or fish, heroes of my artistic worlds and the representation of freedom, beauty and harmony."

Marc Spurgin - Artist Spotlight

Visionary artist Marc Spurgin's inspiration for creating art is to evoke awe and wonder in the hope of awakening the divine within.
Much of Marc’s expertise and desire to work with metal stems from his forbearers through five generations of blacksmithing.
Marc was recently part of the 'SALA in The Park' exhibition in Centennial Park.  His piece named 'Helen' has now been purchased b Centennial Park and stands as a beautiful tribute to his late friend.

'Helen Fletcher was a fellow artist and a dear friend that I said goodbye to earlier this year after a short and brave battle with cancer. When I was invited to be part of the Centennial Park's SALA installation I believed it would be a wonderful opportunity to express my sadness for the struggle so many people, including Helen, have with cancer.

My sculpture 'Helen' has been created as a symbol of the extraordinary fight one has within them in searching for a second chance at life. The butterflies represent 'rebirth' and I have utilised these in all of my sculpture creations as they depict the enduring cycle of life and the process of reawakening. All of us when confronted with cancer search for a renewal in life just like the butterfly does.'

We are pleased to now have his divine piece 'Artist Palette' in The Gallery. 

Anna Blatman now Exhibiting at Artworx

Painting for 28 years, Anna Blatman brings her unique vivid and textural paintings to Artworx.   Her love for flowers and colour has led her to forge a career in painting the subjects that she is most passionate about. Much of her inspiration comes from her garden producing works full of vivid, tactile and textured flowers. Tone on tone layering with strong pigment useachieves her desired finished effect.

'It may have been the spectacular pairing of mid sixties' Marvellous Melbourne combined with my parents' unique genetic blend, which brought to life a dynamic instinct in me to project paintings from my inner gallery into the world at large.'

New Artist - Ela Hardy

Oil Painting is Ela’s passion. 

Having dabbled with all other mediums, she loves the richness and the depth that can be obtained with oil paint, and the way it comes to life on the canvas.   Ela is most interested in still life, especially big, ripe, juicy fruit and loves to add a touch of surrealism to her paintings.

EDUCATION

She has spent the last 10 years being taught many techniques by several very experienced teachers and has successfully exhibited each year in local exhibitions and at several venues.  She has spent the last 5 years with Greg O’Leary who is a very talented, well known artist
