  Feature Artist: Ken Gailer
Yallingup Galleries has recently welcomed Ken Gailer to its selection of fine artists. Ken has been working on a series of landscape paintings he refers to as “Windows to the World”. These works are reflections of the Australian landscape painted from both memory and photographs.  Minutely detailed panels contrast with expansive passages of sky and water, they explore the moods, colours and ever changing patterns of the world in which we live.

Ken Gailer states that his work of the last few years could be labelled “Nostalgic Pop”. To varying degrees he uses representational imagery culled from the mid 1900’s within each work. In a freely intuitive manner he combines these images with abstract and patterned passages, using strong saturated colour. Nothing is pre-determined apart from the first layer of colour and silkscreened images. This method of montage creates conflict where new ideas and narratives emerge from the juxtapositions. One of the artists’ primary goals is to direct the viewer through a constant discovery.

   Feature Work: Alex Wisniewski
Alex Wisniewski has been living and painting in the South West for more than twenty five years, where he finds inspiration in the grandeur and stark beauty of the Cape to Cape Region. During this time his work has focused on the seascape with an emphasis on composition, colour and light.

His approach is not a literal representation, as he prefers to extract elements from a variety of source materials and reconstruct a personal and idealized vision. He is drawn to the complex interplays of energy, patterns of wind on water, waves, ripples in the sand and patterns of cloud. By assimilating and manipulating these patterns as compositional elements his intention is to create work that is complex in structure and rendering, but simple in essence.  A harmonious balance of tensions.

    Feature Artist : Anna DeJager
Born in Holland Anna DeJager migrated to Australia in 1957 where she studied art for four years at the College of TAFE in Fremantle. Anna worked for twenty years as a ticket writer and commercial artist before focusing her energies on painting professionally.

Anna’s work is a bold and vibrant display of colour depicting bright and cheerful interior scenes, floral arrangements and landscapes. She achieves wonderful detail and movement through confident, defined brush strokes of oil on canvas.

Since her first solo exhibition in 1993, Anna’s works have been included in numerous group exhibitions and her works are represented in many collections around the world.
