FELICIA ARONEY

Biography:

Felicia Aroney

Artists Statement 

Felicia Aroney is Western Australian born, now living and working in Sydney as a leading contemporary artist. Felicia draws inspiration from her European heritage, channeling the distressed and peeled painted facades of classical architecture. Working with oils and acrylics, her distinctive abstracted floral works, and contemporary abstracts she utilises a highly sculptural mark-making process. Using a palette knife to layer and shape the paint until it stands relief from the canvas. Her newly appointed collages are just another expression of Felicia`s love of her Australian environment. Felicia paintings evoke a sense of history and antiquity mixed with all things Australian. A wonderful synergy of her European heritage and Australian background. “As a child I recall the tactile nature of the surfaces in Europe. Both the uneven pebbled ground, and roughly rendered walls lead my imagination to a gate way to the past. Falling in love with the imperfections and embracing the spontaneity of ancient architecture and town planning have influenced my technique. Using a palette knife I create similar textures, layering paint, never striving for perfection nor overthinking my application, but rather feeling and trusting the process. Together with my love for both my European influences and my love for Australia’s flora, particularly my favourite flower, the hydrangea, I breathe life into my work”

JAMES AINSLIE

Biography:

JAMES AINSLIE

 

James Ainslie’s preferred palette is acrylic paint on paper, with the occasional use of mixed media.

His forte is modern realism, although he also produces abstract art.

Ainslie’s paintings resonate with an inherent passion for the country’s unique beauty, particularly the sandy dunes and reflective waters of Queensland and South Australia.

Ainslie was born in SA in 1950, graduated in art from the South Australian School of Art and has exhibited throughout Australia and overseas since 1975. Sand and water have always inspired his work, harking back to a childhood in South Australia, spent playing around the Coorong and exploring the huge sand tracts around the Murray River. Now living in Noosa, he has turned his attention to the undulating dunes of Fraser Island and the many beaches along the Sunshine Coast shoreline.

Annual visits to Broome ensure that Kakadu and The Kimberley remain strong influences.

Ainslie was regularly an artist in residence at Ayers Rock, and was invited to represent South Australia in London with 6 other artists, and showed at the Museum of Fine Art in Pasadena, U.S.A. with Ainslie  Roberts and Garry Duncan. James won the prestigious Camberwell Flora & Fauna Prize in 1990 and was co-winner of the Barossa Valley Heritage Award.

His work is featured in prestigious collections such as Artbank; BP Australia; Reserve Bank of Australia; Mobil Australia; William Hancock collection, San Francisco; Banker’s Trust; Diamond Merchants, South Africa; and many public and private collections worldwide.

Artist’s Statement

 

As an artist my paintings are often a direct result of a location.

It is the colours, textures, smells, patterns, in fact the essence of a place that inspires my Images. The interpretation may be realistic, but often may develop more abstractly.
