The Eclectic Three
Regular price $0.00
Come meet “The Eclectic Three” at the opening of their very special exhibition.
Three artists have joined together to celebrate the very nature of artmaking, creating for connection. Who are our eclectic three? Let me introduce you.
In this exhibition Paula Adkins shares with the audience a series of wildlife drawings in pencil, watercolour and ink, focusing on the fine details of each realistic portrait. Her work is realistic in nature, taken from either her own photography or from credited photographers. Paula hopes to encourage her audience to get close to these beautiful creatures and remember how precious our planets wildlife is.
Kurt Le Breton
Kurt has been an avid photographer for over 20 years. The main theme he likes is nature with a focus on balanced form. Kurt does not believe in touching up his photographic works, he does not change the colour balance or the contrast but prefers to have an honest image true to its natural state. Still, he will crop as needed simply for layout purposes. The artistic philosophy Kurt ascribes to goes against touched up image. The image has been “faked” if tampered with, so it must be left with minimal intervention. He looks at an image when taken and instantly knows if it is right. Kurt can take thousands of photos before he finds the precious handful he can use.
Stefano Guseli endeavours to experiment with art forms rather than the form in art. The work in this exhibition traverses not two roads but looks for one destination. On the heels of the previous exhibition in February this year Where Roads Lead the artistic devices do use melding of the past and present – stretching into future works. Exploring expressionism, conceptualism, found objects and a meld of the painterly to ideas based art making – exploration and resolving is key. What is the nature of art? What is its essence? Can it be bottled like a soft drink and pitched till it pops? Or must it be painted and scraped onto canvases until all the paint in the world is exhausted? Art is the question.
Lewis Gallery is proud to host this exhibition and look forward to having you join us for opening night.
