Show & Tell
Wednesday 13 November
A warm invitation to all members and friends to join us for the next Show & Tell.
Hear from artists about why they make their art. Join in a conversation over a cup of tea - ask questions and look at examples each artist brings in to our Studio at Hawthorn. In the Basement, 360 Burwood Road Hawthorn (rear of the Town Hall).
Our presenters for November are
Susie Raz will be our first artist.
'I am mostly self taught. My repertoire includes life drawing, portraiture, landscape, and the imaginary,' explains Suzie. 'The common thread is always a fascination with colour and the interplay of light and darkness. I aim to portray my characters with tenderness and a certain fragility. I am always experimenting to see what new effects can be achieved at any given moment. It is this journey of experimentation and learning that delights me."
Paul Bartholomeusz will be our second artist.
'The arts - music, literature and especially painting have been in my blood for as long as I can remember, inspired by my parents and their friends,' explains Paul.
'The New York school, especially Pollock and Rothko, were teenage inspirations as the picture plane and its gestures became key.
Over the years which followed representation has reasserted itself, especially after seeing Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael, Giorgione, Titian, Caravaggio, Rembrandt and Vermeer in person.
Picasso and the Impressionists don’t seem quite so stunning any more.
I find the landscape difficult to engage with. Too many bugs!'
