» View exhibition

Inspired by the tangled forms of the majestic Angophora trees that hug the foreshore of Sugarloaf Bay in Castlecrag near where the artist lives, these large, oil on plywood paintings suggest a new sense of departure for Roberts.

Flat, broad sweeps and sinuous curves of colour compete with the tangled limbs of the trees themselves. Alluring harbour glimpses are over-lain with graffiti like swirls and splashes of colour that hint at the mood and personality of the tree that is the hero of each work.

Photos of all paintings in the exhibition will be uploaded to on the day of the opening - 24 July 2013.

Art Workshops - An exhibition by six artists

11-22 June 2013 ... more

This exhibition documents the experience of six artists during a trip of a lifetime to South Africa. Elisabeth Cummings accompanied the group together with Artworkshops Australia, combining art and adventure with wildlife and wilderness. Elisabeth will close the exhibition on Saturday 22nd June 2013.

BERYL MILES emigrated to Australia in 1986 from South Africa. She made the transition from ceramics to painting on canvas after visiting the outback a year later. The shift from realism to abstraction was a result of discovering her two greatest influences, Fred Williams and Elisabeth Cummings.

KATHRIN MCMILES has worked as a professional artist for 30 years. She specialized in sculpture and installation works using ceramic, glass, metal, wood and photography. Her work has been exhibited in Australia, USA, Germany, Italy and Indonesia. It was a privilege being amongst likeminded people and experiencing Africa with AWA. It was most inspiring meeting the animals of this ancient land and seeing how they blend into the natural environment. View images and contact Kathrin

JODY GRAHAM is a Sydney based artist whose work currently reflects her interest in urbanism. Resourcefulness, survival and sense of community observed in South African Game Parks and Townships have had a significant impact on Jody's work. Contact Jody on 0410596884 or [email protected] Website:


I begin, I find my way through and only at the end it all makes sense.

I agree with the Irish artist Jack B Yeats:

The artist always begins by expressing himself with line - that is, by

the most obvious means, then he becomes aware that line, once

so necessary, is in fact hemming him in, and as soon as he feels

strong enough, he breaks out of its confines.; ?email -[email protected]

24 paintings, 24 works on paper

My art practice is a core part of who I am, an extension of my environment and the various places I embrace as part of my belonging. I feel comfortable in my skin, at ease with myself. Knowing who I am within my family structure has enabled me to embrace various physical structures as part of me. Found, borrowed and bought objects and homes of family and friends are appropriated and become part of my visual world.

I divide my time between home in Australia and home in Italy, but always, home is home, wherever it is. This is the constant. I feel centered about my work. The centre of the home, evoking a pleasing calm to my images but clutter and chaos are just as real.

I look forward to meeting you at my exhibition.

ASCENSION - New works by Sophie Dalgliesh

5-9 March 2013 ... more

In "Ascension", Sophie continues to draw inspiration from nature, as she looks up to the sky and paints clouds and skyscapes. We all enjoy gazing at the sky to pick out odd shapes in the clouds: odd faces, animals ..
Their shifting amorphous shapes are the perfect inspiration for active imaginations. Clouds pass over us like moods.

This new series was painted over 2 years, on Italian linen, with numerous fine layers of Dutch oil paint, to create depth and transparency .

A new exhibition of passion from sculptor Carol Crawford and artist Karen Michael

Sculptor Carol Crawford and artist Karen Michael will exhibit their textured and tactile abstract works featuring alabaster, limestone and soapstone sculptures by Crawford and oil paintings on Belgian linen by Michael.

The luxurious works herald from deeply organic and traditional methods that the artists engage in their chosen forms. The physical creation of their art creates a poetic synergy between the works that display their passions for nature, abstract form and the physicality of the creation.

Michael's paintings have heavily textured surfaces, reflecting her love of sculpture and highlighting the physicality of painting as an endeavour, a process, as well as an end product. "They convey a sense of the rhythm of all things, organic and inorganic. Light and colour, texture juxtaposed against smooth surfaces and movement set against deep stillness," Michael says.

In the same way Crawford's sculptures seek to express the essence of nature, the fundamental quality that represents the soul. "It is the sensory nature of sculpture... tactile in the creative stages [and] to the person viewing the finished form... I draw on this sensory attraction to create the organic forms, be they abstract or representational, that emerge from the medium I am working with," she said.
