I am a Noongar/Yamatji/Aussie woman and mother, and I was raised in the South West of WA. I have been evolving as an artist since a very young age, and after years of experimentation with styles, techniques and mediums during my search for my own ‘voice’, my art has blossomed with earthy undertones of my Noongar heritage and connection to Country. I feel compelled to and enjoy exploring themes around womanhood, motherhood, the Spirit, healing, mental health and expression. I believe my artistic process is a form of healing, and art is very much a part of my Being. Working with acrylics or oils, my paintings happen intuitively and often lead the way. They usually feature hands, faces, figures, flora and fauna from Wardandi Noongar boodja. In recent years I have been humbled to receive three local art awards.

Moment to moment, that which we seek can be found at the tip of our fingers. Striking, yet soft, Polychrome presents a vision of Culture and Spirit bleeding through to our binary perspective. A blend of colourful indigenous-style marks juxtapose the muted tones of the figures - not to highlight what we are lacking, but what possibilities we can invite in and explore - a space that any person of any race can touch if they dare. Twelve figurative paintings make up this exhibition.

"Vincent Van Gogh was once said, “…paint
runs through my veins”. This phrase has always resonated deeply with me. I can’t imagine a time in my life where a brush has not been in my hand. I may not have always reached for oil paints but I have always responded to the current life happenings through the expression of the arts. Having Dyslexia I have not always been able to express myself verbally that captured my response to the moment. But with painting, I don’t have to over think in the moment I can simply be and the work flows freely.

My latest collections of art works show a capsule of the last 12 months of highs and lows – the response to the even changing world around."

An Exhibition by Julie Fowell about how we evolve and continue to be resilient in difficult times, the paintings and prints reflect the ideas of escape, other-worldliness, and expression of different moods.

My Visual Art practice spans over 40 years and I work primarily in painting and printmaking.I studied Fine Art in Sydney, Visual Arts in Tokyo and then studied Architecture in London.Through this diverse creative experience, I have developed my visual art skills in painting (oil, acrylic and mixed media), drawing (design drafting and experimental mixed media), and printmaking, (intaglio, relief monotype).

The installation has been created especially for this exhibition! Also on display will be the 'People of Busselton' captured in portraits during Lorraine's time as the artist in residence at ArtGeo.

nothing lasts - live in the moment
nothing is finished - keep open for new possibilities
nothing is perfect - it's an illusion in the eye of the beholder

Lorraine is an internationally accomplished artist whose work is of autobiographic nature, investigating human condition, connection, communication and intuition through play with rhythm, balance, space and materiality. Lorraine describes her works as architectural vessels of personal communication containing seeds of thought; driven by the currents and tides of life, anchoring concepts in reality.

She has worked across many oceans and has been an official sculptor representative for the United Kingdom at arts symposiums in Canada, USA, Germany, Norway and Finland. Her sculptures and paintings are part of several collections worldwide including commissioned works commemorating the 4oth year of reign of Queen Elizabeth II.

A Transient Landscape

An exhibition by Tania Spencer with two distinct bodies of work. One is a wiry immersive installation of menacing overgrown plants that have escaped the confines of the household garden into the southwest forests. The second rustic jewellery, wall works and sculptures reflecting the layers of impermanence of our impact on the landscape.

However shortly after moving, Vonne was involved in a motor cycle accident that left her brain damaged. Like so many accident victims, her life was turned upside down. She was left to re-learn nearly everything that was intrinsically her.
