Tricia Trinder

Tricia Trinder creates her encaustic art from her home studio in Sydney’s leafy north. She manages her painting practice alongside a scrum of kids and an impressive backyard menagerie. She first started using encaustics in her work in 2009 and has since developed her own recognisable style. Her current Horizon Series of encaustic works is a contemplation of the intriguing and soothing effect of gazing into the distance, where your eye is naturally led to the endless horizon.

"My work begins with walking: along the Sydney coastline, over the coastal rock platforms, up on the cliffs, or sitting on the beach, observing the effect of light on water. Large seascapes start with quick studies and drawings made en plein air. Back in my Sydney art studio, I apply the rich buttery oil paint with brush and palette knife to create contemporary Australian landscapes.

Life just feels better by the sea.

Susie Dureau   Observations of light and atmosphere are central to my creative practice. While my paintings are landscape based, they are much more than literal depictions of the wilderness. They speak also of the wildness and primal nature in humankind.  My most recent paintings are desaturated landscapes fractured with cracks of highly saturated pigment. My enquiry is around man’s relationship with nature and the complexity of the issues that face us.   www.susiedureau.com

Saffron Craig   Saffron Craig works out of her Sydney studio, painting, embroidering and layering various techniques over linen. Her natural surroundings inspire her paintings. She grew up in a small coastal town in NSW and now lives by the shoreline on Sydney's Northern Beaches.  Saffron works are abstracted by layering colour, creating texture with subtle shapes peeking through.   www.saffroncraig.com

Marisabel Gonzalez   My work is a response to the surroundings that impact me. This results in abstraction based on common links in the scenery of where I come from, Venezuela, and the country I now call home, Australia.  I’m interested in raw, unmediated landscape, which generates the presence of something larger than us. My process involves building up multiple layers of paint beginning with shapes taken from sketches and photos of a particular environment.   www.marisabelgonzalez.com

Fiona Verity  On Fiona’s creative journey she pushes her materials, layering and experimenting with how to translate the essence of a scene onto paper, board or canvas. By drawing ‘en plein air’ she is able to record that moment, responding to the landscape, creating her own interpretation of the view that she sees and feels.  Fiona landscape paintings have been shown extensively throughout Sydney with solo and group shows. She was Warringah Councils first Artist in Residence in 2013 and has recently been working with fellow artist Debbie Mackinnon on large collaborative landscapes painted ‘en plein air’ that were part of the LAND exhibition, shown at Manly Regional Gallery.   www.fionaverity.com.au
