Nellie Crawford

Nellie Crawford is a contemporary Australian still life artist. Nellies works are highly sought after as distinctive and finely executed oil paintings.

With subtle use of colour and a deep respect for the technical skills of drawing and painting, Nellie creates paintings which evoke a sense of tranquility and balance. The simple, timeless things that she sees everyday fascinate her... the colours and texture of fruit, the shine on an enamel jug, the patina of well-worn utensils, table tops and window ledges catching the morning or afternoon light. In her painting Nellie hopes to capture the feeling of quiet contemplation.

Douglas Kirsop

Since 1985 Douglas has travelled extensively through the Pilbara, Kimberley, Murchison and the Northern Territory. He states 'The north will always have a fascination and be an endless source of inspiration. The timeless, vast and spiritual nature of its land has a power which has not been felt anywhere else'.

'My art is expressed through the language of painting my reaction to a visual experience. It may be landscape, the play of light over a subject, the movement of water, the colour of the rock, but I am compelled and inspired to put it down on paper or canvas and develop it further in the studio. The process and purpose of making art is my way of reasoning my position in the world whose beauty I attempt to reflect and capture'.
 
 
 
     
Vayu

Michael starts with a drawing and can tell straight away if it has ‘something’.  As he states "My best work happens immediately without too much fuss. I have always loved the feeling of working with my left hand even though I am right handed. Painting provides me with an amazing feeling of freedom and this inspires the paint on the canvas. People are attracted to my work because there is a connection for them. I write words on all of my paintings and if these are honest then they will resonate". Michael states "The most important thing in the creative process is to know yourself.  I need a spiritual connection with my work. This connection is referred to in the name that I paint under, 'Vayu'. This is reflected as my spiritual name".
