ARTISTS draw in­spi­ra­tion from what is around them and for farmer and mum Nyree Tay­lor, it’s the beauty of her small coun­try town Piawaning that has re­ally taken hold of her cre­ativ­ity.

Draw­ing on her nat­u­ral sur­round­ings, Tay­lor has cre­ated a col­lec­tion of draw­ings and paint­ings for a new ex­hi­bi­tion at the Ki­dogo Art­house.

She said it was hard to pin down her style as it was con­stantly evolv­ing.

“At this stage I can be quite fig­u­ra­tive in my draw­ing and my paint­ings are ex­plo­rative works, so the brush works can dif­fer from paint­ing to paint­ing,” she said.

“This col­lec­tion is sub­tle in colour with a few, but then a cou­ple are colour in­tu­itive.

“The ti­tle Ar­ca­dia re­flects the land­scape in which I’m try­ing to find a paint­ing.

“By choos­ing oil paints as my medium for paint­ings it en­sures a real slow study of the land­scape, not just vis­ually but with my ears open as well to re­ally dis­cover my own in­ter­pre­ta­tion of how the land­scape makes me feel.”

Ar­ca­dia is at the Ki­dogo Art­house from Septem­ber 28 to Oc­to­ber 4.
