ART EXHIBITORS

Chandelle was proud to support talented local Artisans

In sharing Mel & David's love of art, Chandelle Galerie proudly hosted and displayed the works of South Australian Artisans in their shop at Hyde Park. Each month Chandelle Galerie gave customers the opportunity to meet the artist of the month and buy their work. Below is a little information on each great artist.

 

ANNE MILLER

Anne Miller has been painting for over 20 years and is basically a self-taught artist although always grateful for the interaction and advice gained at Community based Painting Classes. 

She has tried every medium but is most comfortable with the fluidity of acrylic paints.  Her subject matters were just as diverse, painting landscapes, still life, portraits, and the occasional animal. 

With this broad range of experience, Anne has decided to explore the exciting subject of abstract art. 

Currently, she is using a mixed medium to incorporate the various textures and marks to elicit movement and emotion. The interplay of colour gives another dimension of drama to the paintings.

The interplay of colour gives another dimension of drama to the paintings. Anne believes art should allow the viewer to enter the process and participate in the storytelling of her paintings… to be able to share the same delight of the painter in spying an area of sheer perfection within a painting and make it their own.

 

ANNELISE KREIG

Another fantastic emerging artist - definitely worth seeing her latest works of art!

Anneliese is an emerging SA artist that paints contemporary pieces that are whimsical, fun and full of colour. She uses mostly acrylics but dabbles in other mediums. Annelise says: "a little piece of my heart goes into each painting, they are like my children".

Anneliese is married to a lovely farmer, Craig, and she lives on a property outside of Brinkworth. Her family consists of Emilee and her partner Danny, and Nic and his partner Jess. They encouraged her in every step of her art journey and are her personal support team.

Her love of painting was resurrected 3 years ago and she has not looked back since. She is heavily involved in art groups in the Clare Valley - the highlights have been several art exhibitions and demonstrating as an artist in residence at two of the exhibitions.

 

JB POPPY ART


JB Poppy Art is the art of Adelaide artist Jan Brown.

It was not until early 2014 that Jan painted her first canvas. It was instant love. The creative process, the richness and diversity of colour, the creamy texture of the paint and the feeling of lavishing it on the canvas, watching something emerge from a blank space is what grabbed her and what moved her to start her journey as an artist.

Jan had to take an extended leave from her work, which involved long hours of sitting at a computer to recover from a back injury. It was during this rehabilitation period that she took her first art class. She felt so inspired by the experience of painting, the total focus, and absorption in the moment was like a meditation. After being told that it was not advisable to continue her work for medical reasons, she made the bold decision to follow her heart and explore her new found passion for painting.

Jan's love of flowers has been a source of inspiration to her as she emerges into the world as an artist. She loves to capture the moment of beauty, the unfurling, the power and energy, like dance movements, vibrant, sensual and passionate. The colours and shapes in the depths and folds of the petals. The unlimited variations and combinations of colour, complex and exciting are all explored in her work.

We are very proud to showcase her work for the month of April and look forward to a special Opening Night planned for her and her friends to celebrate her first public works

 

LYNETTE KRING ART

Born to German immigrants Lynette got her creative bent from her devoted parents. Lynette's mum was a talented artist & her dad a painter decorator. Lynette is self-taught and says her mum was her inspiration and she recalls fondly time they spent together entering Rotary Art Exhibitions before she passed. After her mum passed, Lynette stopped painting for some time, but later started up again, painting with her sister, also a talented artist, and she has not looked back since.

"I love working on canvas and have maintained a similar style to when I did silk painting. I love experimenting with different textures and mediums, and rarely plan my entire piece as I like my paintings to evolve as I’m working on them" says Lynette. "I live on the Fleurieu Peninsula, for me the most wonderful place in the world, and I am fortunate to have my art displayed for sale in a few of the local businesses. I’m a firm believer in spreading one’s art around, even in the most unlikely of places because even if only one person stops to look, you have achieved something. Art should always be shared"

And we at Chandelle Galerie totally agree we are pleased to be exhibiting her stunning works of art and encourage you to visit to see them yourself. All works are for sale.

 

SHARON WOOD

We are honoured to have the paintings of our good friend, Sharon Wood at Chandelle Galerie for a limited time.

Sharon is a multi-talented lady who is a self-taught artist. While she has only been painting for a few years, she loves all paint mediums, which include watercolours, oils, and acrylics. Sharon is a member of both http://paintingsilove.com and http://fineartamerica.com.

Sharon has exhibited (and sold) paintings online, via commission, and via Rotary Art Shows.

Sharon recently began exploring a new type of art, using dye and pigmented inks. Sharon skilfully uses inks to create an image of great immediacy and life, balancing brightness and darkness, density and light, line and tone. But this just one of the mediums she uses, so a visit to Chandelle is a must to see her broad range of works of art.

Stay tuned for a date when Sharon will be in Chandelle to talk with customers about her passion . All Sharon's work is for sale at very reasonable prices!

 

KAY CUNNINGHAM

A self-taught artist with a passion for learning Kay obtained a Diploma of Art and Certificate in Art & Craft (with majors in painting) through TAFE back in the early 1980's. She went on to study watercolour technique with well known Dr. Jolly Koh and today still attends workshops on various paint mediums as the urge compels.

By invitation, Kay has shared her knowledge of painting with others in Vanuatu, Sweden and the United Kingdom. She has been engaged in teaching within the community in both South Australia and Victoria, has demonstrated her watercolour techniques to the Watercolour Association of Australia and has taught privately.

Kay professional associations include:
  • Past Treasurer of The Artists Association of South Australia
  • Past Treasurer of The South Australian Watercolour Society
  • Past Vice President & Committee Member of the Marion Art Group
  • Recent Board Member of the Red House Group based at the Marion Cultural Centre.
  • Member of the Watercolour Association of Australia
  • Member of the Royal Society of South Australia
  • Member of the Adelaide Art Society, and
  • Member of the South Australian Watercolour Society

Kay’s paintings can be found in Europe, Canada, United States, New Zealand, Vanuatu, China & Australia, and are held in both private and corporate collections. Kay enjoys travelling in Australia and overseas, photographing, sketching and painting the wonderful world she feels lucky to venture through.

Kay tells us she has always resisted the temptation to paint to a successful selling formula as she feels it's too stifling and she enjoys the challenge of new ideas and expressions within her art. She cites she is "very fortunate I am able to indulge herself in the frustrations and the passions of my obsession".

We are very proud to showcase Kay's latest artworks, and we absolutely love her landscapes and paintings of emu's, so please pop in for a visit during November.

 

RON KEELAN

What is Intarsia?

Intarsia is the woodworking technique of hand cutting tiny pieces of wood, then fitting them together to create intricate pictorial images with an illusion of depth. It originated in the Arabic world and spread to Europe, arriving in Italy in the mid-1300s. After about 1620, marquetry, which uses glued wood veneers, started to replace intarsia in cabinet work, and unfortunately, intarsia slowly became a lost art.

Most intarsia artisans nowadays are self-taught. Ron says "It's not just a matter of cutting out different shapes of wood from different species to give the effect of different colours, you need to fully understand the grains of the wood and how to best cut it - and that's after you have figured out how to get the piece of the pattern you are working with onto the wood".

In the picture below, created by Ron, hundreds of tiny pieces of different kinds of wood were used to create a three-dimensional image. By using different types of wood with their natural grain patterns and colours Ron created a range of tones, just like a painter. Each piece of wood is individually cut, shaped, and finished. The pieces are fitted together like a jigsaw puzzle, then glued to a wood backing.

 

SAMANTHA TIPLER

Samantha’s art is inspired by nature. She is captivated by the colours, textures and patterns contained within the broader elements. Getting up close with nature enables her to observe and appreciate the minute details and it’s these details that form the basis of her work.

Having exhibited and undertaken commissions in both Australia and the UK, Samantha enjoys experimenting with and incorporating different techniques and influences in her work. “I love the vibrancy of colours found in our natural environment and see inspiration everywhere.

Her latest series has been particularly inspired by her daily beach walks, awe-inspiring sunsets and the beauty and texture of shells.” Samantha’s work is a must see!
