Radiant by Gatya Kelly
Grainger Gallery is proud to present Radiant by Gatya Kelly.
Byron Bay artist, Gatya Kelly's still lifes are a testament to her skill as a painter. Sumptuous pomegranates and luscious grapes set in decadent chinoiserie porcelain, and iridescent bouquets radiate out from their dark chiaroscuro backgrounds. This show is a celebration of light and form.
"From a perspective often reflecting the domestic and the feminine, I use compositional elements as the common denominations of our collective experience" says Kelly.
"Oil paint has vibrancy, delicateness and strength – it is the perfect medium to suggest the elusive quality of light and express nuance. There is an intimate dialogue between the painter and the painting, which becomes a dance when the work finds its own presence, when the air of the arbitrary vanishes, and the painting is liberated from the artist. Then the work is not a representation of something else, but itself. "
