Re­flect­ing on art­work

Ellenbrook Advocate - - NEWS -

ART teach­ers Su­san Robin­son and Ann Gar­diner have come to­gether to present their ex­hi­bi­tion Re­flec­tions at Ellenbrook Arts this month.

The duo live and breathe art and are pas­sion­ate about shar­ing their skills with chil­dren with dis­abil­i­ties.

Ms Robin­son’s in­spi­ra­tion is of­ten found in plants, an­i­mals and land­scapes, while Ms Gar­diner uses re­pur­posed can­vases and finds in­spi­ra­tion in photographs in mag­a­zines and on­line, with her own unique style.

Ms Gar­diner said she loved im­mers­ing her­self in paint­ing.

“What I re­ally love about paint­ing is that you can con­stantly learn new tech­niques, new ap­proaches,” he said.

“You can to­tally im­merse your­self in the process of paint­ing from mix­ing the colours and ap­ply­ing the paint Su­san Robin­son and Ann Gar­diner are show­cas­ing their ex­hi­bi­tion Re­flec­tions at Ellenbrook Arts.

to the can­vas, ad­just­ing the images as you paint. It is my form of med­i­ta­tion.”

The two artists have been friends for many years as well as work­ing to­gether and have

used the ex­hi­bi­tion to over­come hur­dles and ob­sta­cles.

All art­works range from $400 to $1250.

The ex­hi­bi­tion will run June 29 at Ellenbrook Arts.
