Between Earth and Sky

Mellissa Read-Devine

Over the years I have come to care very much for Australia’s green spaces, fauna and flora. I often immerse myself in the bush and spend a lot of time in observation and appreciation before I create a painting.

I believe we are all called to be stewards of the natural world that surround our homes and cities; to protect and treasure what could easily be lost.

I invite the viewer to see the Australian bush through a vibrant and optimistic vision of colour and light.

Oriental: Architecture and Art

A Group Exhibition

This exhibition features the work of our Chinese artists. Li Xinsheng is well known for his evocative ink and watercolour paintings of China’s northern landscapes. Cheng Yu’s figurative works skilfully executed with oil and palette knife has seen his reputation grow in his homeland China.

Juxtaposing the art are traditional carved panels. Lattice panels of individually crafted and joined pieces combine with fine detailed carving. For this exhibition we have included unique and very rare house feature carvings. These are important elements of the traditional Chinese house and contribute to the unmistakable character of Chinese architecture.

Roger Beale AO – Solo Exhibition

I am a painter of life around me. That means cities, landscapes and people. The sublime glimpsed from ordinary places is important to me. But I am also interested in ideas and the history of Western art and architecture – these too find a place in my works.

I have travelled extensively for business and pleasure and a sketchbook is always close at hand. I have been privileged to meet many of Australia and the world’s political leaders, scientists and policy advisers.

Roger’s exhibition was reviewed by leading art critic Sasha Grishin. You can read Sasha’s review here Roger Beale: Sun Rain Flowers at Humble House gallery shares passion and beauty
