Island Splendour – Exhibition by Simon Olding & Michael Weitnauer

July 17, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - August 5, 2015 @ 1:00 pm

A PREVIEW OF RECENT WORKS BY SIMON OLDING & MICHAEL WEITNAUER

This joint exhibition contrasts artworks, in two distinctly different mediums, that are inspired by the Tasmanian landscape.

The juxtaposing of painting alongside photography, with colour canvas works resonating with black & white print images, provides a strong visual ‘snapshot’ of the varied ways artists can view and interpret our natural landscape, conveying to a degree its impact and importance for us all. It also demonstrates how the art-image, be it a painting or a photograph, can encapsulate more than just a representational mirror image through capturing a moment or experience that demands our attention and contemplation. While these are deeply personal interpretations, the skill of the artist is in making their images resonate and also have meaning for others.
