20170601 Robyn Kinsela - Layers of Landscape

Join us for an exhibiton of large scale pieces from one of the regions highly recognised and collectable artists. The show runs from 3rd - 30th June "My works are mostly 2D and are about place and space and our presence in them. They range from the abstract to the expressive and the impressionistic. I work on board, canvas and paper in oil, acrylic, watercolour, charcoal, graphite, pastel, mixed media and digital printmaking. Nature's patterns and textures are common themes in my work where I interpret rather than copy my subject. My interest in people and the human condition also lead me to participate in portrait painting, an early interest of mine which continues to this day.
I develop much of my work in the studio referencing my sketches, photos and written descriptions which were done on site. I always need a tangible or intangible reference as a starting point. Listening to music, listening to the birds outside and the breeze in the eucalypts, even listening to someone else's experiences or reading a book can transport me to another place in my memory and back to places I have travelled, known and experienced. Resulting new work comes like a delayed reaction as if my thoughts need some sort of incubation time. Initial sketches and visual notes do sometimes become finished works especially my plein air work and life drawings.
Recent important exhibitions where I was selected a finalist include the Plein Air Painting Prize, NSW Parliament House, Sydney; Heysen Landscape Painting Prize, Hahnedorf, SA; Fisher's Ghost Open and the Drawing Award, Campbelltown City Art Centre. I also was judged the overall winner of the St George Acquisitive Art Award, Hurstville Museum and Art Gallery, Sydney.
Current important exhibitions where I am a selected finalist, include the Calleen Acquisitive Art Prize, Cowra Regional Art Gallery and the Bayside Acquisitive Art Award, Brighton Arts Centre, Melbourne."
