After spending the last couple of weeks of Uni planning and writing essays, I knew it would only be a matter of time until I'd be seeking some sort of artistic reprieve, be it focusing on my painting or writing or visiting some art galleries. At the weekend, I attended an event called the Artist Open House. Essentially, a couple of private homes in the city of Fremantle opened to the public, where visitors could view exhibits which displayed works by numerous local artists. It was such an amazing, intimate event and a unique way to be exposed to and learn more about local artists..
I found myself particularly enamored by Kate Jarman's pieces. The above are all works on wood using oils. I love how vibrant they are, the colours and subject of her works being the native fauna and flora of Australia.
