My painting tribute to this auspicious day: “We are Stronger When We Stand Together”
This week I delivered some art to Collie Art Gallery ( in the south west of Western Australia – about 2 hours from our home.)
I am so pleased with the outcome. Collie Art Gallery is a fabulous art space. If you are in Western Australia please pop in and check out the gallery – and my work
It has been a busy few months in the lead up to my “Restless 2020” exhibition in Fremantle, Western Australia.
Here is a quick look at my room- it looks fabulous! Thanks to all those who visited the gallery, your support is amazing.
I am very happy excited to share with you the dates of my latest exhibition
“ Restless” – which sums up my feelings around 2020.
I had a fabulous time;a trip to Fremantle to take 3 paintings to be included in an exhibition at Studio 11 in Captains Lane. At the exhibition I won a high commendation for one of the pieces, and sold that piece too! Then had dinner out with husband and my daughter who lives in Perth – what a magical day.
My response to self isolation in this Covid climate. What do you think? Finished? More “ eyes”?
I am attending an amazing abstract watercolour workshop this weekend -it’s so energising. Thanks Stephanie Boyle Art
Van Gogh in 50 Works
Harper Collins Publishers Australia
From humble beginnings in Nuenen and Antwerp to his last month in Auvers-sur-Oise, this captivating book on Vincent Van Gogh’s life and works is the perfect introduction for all students and art lovers interested in late nineteenth-century and Post-Impressionist art.
Featuring fifty of his finest works, each painting and drawing is described and analyzed in beautiful detail, within the context of the period, so that the reader can really understand what the artist was hoping to achieve with each work. Drawing from the many letters that Van Gogh wrote to his brother, friends and others, curator John Cauman provides an enthralling and accessible narrative about the artist and his work, introducing the milieu, key characters, the themes, and legacy that continues to this day.
Among his most famous works, this book includes The Potato Eaters (1885), Père Tanguy (1887), Self-Portrait in front of Easel (1888), Still Life Vase with Fifteen Sunflowers (1888), Cafe Terrace at Night (1888), Bedroom in Arles (1888), Van Gogh’s Chair (1888), Portrait of Joseph Roulin (1889), Self-portrait with Bandaged Ear (1889), Irises (1889), The Starry Night (1889) and Wheat Field with Crows (1890).
This is a stunning collection, beautifully presented- the photography is first class- it looks like you have THE art in your hands…loved this very motivating read.
A must for all art lovers.
