A time and place for ev­ery­where

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Art -

PERTH artist Louise Clarke is hold­ing her first lo­cal ex­hi­bi­tion, First Im­pres­sions: Australia and Be­yond, at Houghton Win­ery Gallery, Mid­dle Swan from March 28 to April 29.

The April ex­hi­bi­tion show­cases oil- painted im­pres­sion­ist land­scapes of inspiring lo­ca­tions, in­clud­ing Australia, Europe and Amer­ica.

Clarke said she painted land- scapes that in­spired her to cap­ture a par­tic­u­lar mo­ment in time.

“The light, sea­son, weather, scenery are al­ways chang­ing,” she said.

“My aim is to re­flect the way the el­e­ments of na­ture com­bine to cre­ate a par­tic­u­lar mood, and paint my im­pres­sion of that mo­ment in a beau­ti­ful piece of art.

“It could be the still­ness of re­mote hill­top towns in Si­cily, windswept rocky light­houses in coastal Cal­i­for­nia, quiet bays with an­cient Mayan ru­ins in Mex­ico, the Blue Moun­tains in NSW or the stunning beaches around Perth.

“I re­cently re­turned to Australia af­ter living abroad for more than 15 years and have fallen in love again with this beau­ti­ful, vast and iso­lated coun­try.”

The ex­hi­bi­tion is open 10am4pm daily.

Louise Clarke has cap­tured im­pres­sions of beau­ti­ful lo­ca­tions all over the world in her ex­hi­bi­tion at Houghton Win­ery Gallery.
