RUDI JASS SCULPTURE

In his studio German-born sculptor Rudi creates contemporary water features and sculptures characterized by clean flowing lines, elegant forms and timeless design that are equally at home in small courtyards or amid the strong shapes of bold modern architecture in urban and commercial developments. He uses mainly stainless steel, cor-ten steel and copper which are often combined with glass and stone in his distinctive style. All pieces are handmade in small or limited editions. Rudi's work is highly sought after by architects and landscape designers, who particularly appreciate the fact that some of his designs can be modified to complement individual surroundings or some distinctive architectural feature. Custom-designed pieces can also be created.

Exhibition Comments:

 

Born in England in 1972, Ryan and his family came to Australia on an ocean liner called The Australia on a family ticket costing 26 pounds. Throughout his body of work, we can see a heavy influence of Australian landscape and culture. Ryans technique also shows the refinement and control of the European classics.

Obtaining a degree in three-dimensional design, from the University of Newcastle in the UK, Ryans technique was further developed whilst traveling throughout Europe and studying the works of such artists as Monet, Constable and Dali. Ryan has now returned to Australia and after several years in Melbourne now resides in Sydney. 

Ryan is a contemporary impressionist artist who calls upon complex techniques to create works of art arresting in realism and engaging in visual and narrative wit. He recognises the power of realism and uses his training in three-dimensional design to great effect, whilst still calling upon traditional techniques so to lay the intricate patterns that he uses (without the use of stencils) and with an interest in visual concepts and conceits to express his narratives.

For the past eleven years Ryan has been exhibiting work in Melbourne. He is also a commission artist who has done works for various companies, as well as numerous bars, cafes and private collectors.

I believe a painting should not be placed on a wall to fill a space, but to inspire the onlooker, to evoke thought and feeling, tell a story and record times gone by.

CONTEMPORARY REALIST PAINTINGS

 This latest series of work by Craig Cole continues his exploration of the metamorphism of an Australian urban and suburban environment and how this continual change affects the inhabitants. Within this context, Cole depicts public structures that are unnoticed but require a closer look to investigate the nuances of human contact. His painted canvases allow for contemplation of the process, giving the viewer a new understanding of the contemporary environment, prone to rapidly alter with the fast-paced evolution of technology.

by BRENDA HARTILL
08-12-2014 - 31-01-2015

Exhibition Comments:

  I always with my work I like to allow the medium to dictate to a large extent the direction that I follow. I am a great believer in lateral thinking, and with my etchings I work on the metal plate, "going with the flow", keeping an open mind, and "riding" the happy and unhappy accidents that occur along the way. I also like to use the action of the acid very much as part of the creative process, and my recent themes of elements in the landscape-erosion, structure, water flow, texture and universal forms, are a gift to the process of etching .

To retain maximum flexibility I often work on many small plates at a time, and the final images develop out of collaging the contrasting elements in juxtaposition. The etching/carborundum series, "Fractured Earth", and "Broken Land", are developed in this way. The theme of the fragility of the earth grew from the earlier "Hot Rock" series, and my visit to New Zealand in 1995. The land is crisscrossed with dramatic reminders of very recent earth movements, thermal activity and earthquakes, which is less obvious in older landscapes, where erosion takes over. In New Zealand there is always a sense of underlying danger, of the possibility of cataclysmic changes to the landscape and our lives. Now we have global warming and a sense that man is dramatically, perhaps irrevocably, affecting his environment.

The latest collaged etching / carborundum work, explores the theme of chemical reaction and erosion. "Silver Meltdown" was developed from a plate that had accidentally been immersed in pure nitric acid, then the dynamic and eroded forms which resulted were cut and reworked. The addition of silver leaf for "Silver Meltdown" developed this idea, which led to the "Alchemy" (where I used pure gold for the first time), and "Metamorphosis" series.

To create the collaged works I collect a large number of plates together with images, textures, vignettes, cloud formations, land formations, rock and plants forms etc. This is the basic material I work with, and I then begin to formulate, compile and distil my images by collaging the plates , cutting them, reworking them with acid until I eventually glue them onto a steel "base plate" . In these latest works I have sought to emphasize the forms by isolating them in a sea or pool of deep dark colour.

After trying many methods to achieve the intensity of colour I required, I found that by applying glue, and then the fine grit carborundum around the collaged images, I was able to get the sense of infinity, depth and space I was looking for. Each of the plates is then inked by hand, the carborundum areas absorbing a great deal of ink. I found it necessary to mask this surround out while inking the central area as the etched plates are subjected to several layers of ink, firstly with the "intaglio" ink (the first application which sinks into the deepest crevasses of the often heavily embossed metal). This inking is then wiped clean, and is followed by "the rubs" , often primary colours, which are applied in such a way to pick up at different levels of the specially-designed, deeply embossed plates. The sculptural quality of these plates allow the ink to "light" the surface rather like one would light a sculpture or a stage set with coloured light, thus the colour follows the form in a very true way, and creates a "buzz" of colour rather like refracted light. I have developed this method myself, although William Hayter in his Atelier in Paris exploited deeply etched metal by using hard and soft rollers, along with inks of different viscosity. I prefer the softer "illuminating" results for my work.

I print onto very heavy (400gms or 600gms) handmade French De Chene printmaking paper, which holds the embossing while printing fine detail and line exquisitely, and Somerset mould-made 300gms paper. All the works are printed in my own studio and signed in strictly limited editions.

ALL THE BEST GROUP EXHIBITION

CONTEMPORARY   PAINTINGS 

My works, classified in style as, "Neo-Classical Post- Surrealism", are based on aerographic interpretations of indigenous Australian, Greek, Roman and Christian lore, merged with dreamscape abstractions and impressions of Australia. 

Each masterwork is generated from a limited palette of the three primary colours; red ochre, yellow ochre and cobalt blue. In addition, white and very limited, to no black are also used with no pre-mixing of colour. The colours, not being pre-mixed, are applied using the classical technique of Glazing, which involves colour being laid down one upon the other to create the desired colour or its various hues.   

Due to the nature and style of the technique, each piece takes from sixty (60) to eighty (80) hours for a small work (600 x 450mm) to one thousand (1000) hours for a larger work of (1000 x 1500mm).

 Neo-Classical Post- Surrealism is now an accepted new style of contemporary art. Welcome to the magic. 

Fil Michels

I could not write this biography without first giving recognition to Jane Raffin of Orange, for granting me my first exhibitions in Orange and Dubbo at the age of 20 years old and for also directing me towards what was to become many years of studies in the Arts.

 

Also, to my first art teacher Barry Gazzard, my tutor in Fine Arts oils at Mitchell College of Advanced Education, Bathurst. I was fortunate to have Barry as both mentor and tutor for four years. He inspired me with a love of the discipline and perspective in art and introduced me to the philosophy of art I still adhere to today, through an appreciation of the works of Ananda K. Coomaraswamy.

 

Further to Lyndal Crisp of The Australian newspaper for introducing me to Elwyn Lynn a renowned artist and curator, who gave me the courage and determination to remain absolutely true to my own artistic techniques and style.

 

As aforementioned, during my early years (1970s and 80s) I have exhibited in many areas of Australia, from the central west of Dubbo, Orange and Mudgee regional galleries, to Western Australia, Coolgardie and Kalgoolie as well as taking a position as the artist in residence to the court of Prince Leonard at The Hutt River Province in W.A. at aged 24.

 

My 30s to mid 40s saw another change in lifestyle, as I became a prolific artist, regularly receiving commissions, (studies in oils) of a surrealistic nature,  with additional support studies in portraiture and developing a whole series of mechanical lithographic prints (studies in historical and rural Australiana).

 

From my mid forties to now, I have had been involved in several exhibitions, in the Blue Mountains Alleyway Art, Penrith Lewers Bequest Gallery and The Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre,  Campbelltown Fishers Ghost Art Prize and The Tap Gallery in Darlinghurst. I have also undertaken several commissions in the passed three years with what has become my signature style, NEO-CLASSICAL POST-SURREALISM.

 

All my works thematic content is drawn from my passion and knowledge of Australian history, both indigenous and colonial. This however, is often juxtaposed with European, Roman, Greek  and Christian lore featuring events of historical significance or perhaps just reflecting symbolically the resonating nuances and foibles of the human condition that have cross-cultural significance.

Exhibition Comments:


CONTEMPORARY SCULPTURE 

Phillip Hay was born in Sydney and left school at 15 to complete an electrical/mechanical trade. In 1980 he rejected traditional society, leaving his friends, career and secure lifestyle to be part of an artistic community within the upper Blue Mountains in NSW.

 

This began a period of introspection and self exploration in which he was drawn to the performing as well as the visual arts. In the 25 year period to follow, he developed skills in theatre, dance, stage magic, painting and sculpture, the latter becoming his professional focus.

 

The mud brick home and studio in which he lives and works is nestled amongst  bushland overlooking ironstone escarpments. The native grass and fishpond behind the house attracts parrots, kangaroos and blue tongue   lizards, thus creating a sanctuary for artistic pursuits. Today Phillip spends his time refining welding techniques and developing the ideas that come from his passion for nature and music.

 

Classical themes and archetypes of the soul intuitively emerge in his work and are the result of a life of introspection in conjunction with self inquiry. Sometimes the work is essentially visual harmony, at other times humorous or thought-provoking.
