Artist's Statements

 

Ron Reynolds

Ron Reynolds paints mainly in oils and his semi-abstract images are built upon figurative studies drawn from life. Most of his works are completed in the studio from reductive compositional drawings. Ron's paintings have a strong underlying structure achieved by line and colour.

Ron has been a Victorian Artists' Society Council member from 1994 to 2001 and has taught oil painting for five years at the Victorian Artists' Society art school. Ron was named the Victorian Artists' Society Artist of the Year in 1996, and he won the Victorian Artists' Society Norman Kaye Medal in 1997.

Ron has held ten solo exhibitions and has participated in a number of group exhibitions.

His artworks are part of a number of Collections including the Art Bank Canberra, City of Nillumbik, Hawthorn Institute of State Education, C.I.G. Collection, Southern Health Collection, Olivia Newton-John Centre - Austin Hospital Collection, Ludwig Institute Heidelberg and Private Collections in Australia and overseas.

Rose Draffin

Horses are a significant reoccurring theme of Rose's artwork. When painting horses she takes a mixed media approach using acrylic and oil paint. Rose's exploration of an abstract under-painting plays a key role in developing the final image. Following the development of this, and the form, she has a particular focus on developing the final surface finish.

Bronwen Hunt

Bronwen has recently travelled around Australia and most of her work in this Exhibition has come from drawings on this trip then developed back in the studio with cold wax medium and oil worked on a cradled board.  This allows for flexibility in the development of texture and mood.
