Paintings on Silk: Meet the Artist
May 1 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Local artist Carole Osmotherly will be exhibiting her new body of work in a solo exhibition here at Humble House gallery.
This recent body of works has been created to reflect her fascination with trees.
Carole’s intent is to encourage viewers to experience the many shapes, colours and textures of trees through her carefully considered silk paintings and hangings.
The process of painting on silk is complex and needs a considerable amount of pre-planning. To create the work Carole stretches silk across a wooden frame and applies colour in layers systematically fixing them with hot wax until the silk is completely covered. Once completed the work is steamed. This steaming process fixes the colour and removes the wax. To add depth and colour many of the works in this exhibition have been over painted and steamed several times.
Paintings on Silk opens April 28 and runs through to May 16. Carole will be at the gallery between 12 noon and 3pm on Saturday 1 May. Please join us for this “Meet the Artist” event to talk to Carole about her art.
