Ab­stract scenes at Col­lie gallery

South Western Times - - News -

Var­i­ous colours, lay­ers and tex­tures will fill the walls of the Col­lie Art Gallery when it hosts Perth­based artist Carol Rowl­ing from De­cem­ber 21 to Fe­bru­ary 10.

Ms Rowl­ing is in­flu­enced by the vast Aus­tralian land­scape over which she flies on a reg­u­lar ba­sis, in­spired by the rugged for­ma­tions cre­ated over time.

Th­ese im­ages are con­veyed in an ab­stract way us­ing mixed me­dia, acrylic and ochre col­lected from her vis­its to the Kim­ber­ley and Pil­bara re­gions.

She also in­ter­prets the nat­u­ral beauty by carv­ing into lay­ers of can­vas with a power tool, as­sem­bling each work over pre-shaped wood and stretcher frames.
