Reminder: Monthly Demonstration Meeting 8th October – Carol Gill – Mixed Media Collage

Carol Gill – Mixed Media Collage

A reminder that we have Carol Gill with us to demonstrate Mixed Media Collage at our next monthly meeting on Tuesday, 8th October, 7:30pm at the Stan Stevens Studio, Deerubbin Centre, George St, Windsor.

Carol began her art career as a Graphic Designer spending her early years in advertising. Developing her art practise in this era meant the icons of the 70s-80s like Brett Whitely, Ken Done and Jenny Kee also heavily influenced her art.

In later years she rediscovered her art through further study and workshops where she was introduced to mixed media and collage by Judith White.

Carol uses a wide range of traditional Korean mulberry papers or “hanji”, tissue papers, water colours and gouache and loves the way they respond and react with one another.

She’s captivated by the textures and organic materials of the hanji papers and their relationship to the natural landscape from which they have been sourced. She enjoys bringing the beautifully delicate yet strong qualities of hanji to a very contemporary Australian theme.

Richard Chao – Portraiture in Watercolour

We are very happy to welcome Richard Chao to demonstrate Portraiture in Watercolour at our next monthly meeting on 9th July, 7:30pm at the Stan Stevens Studio, Deerubbin Centre, George St, Windsor.

Richard is a Chinese artist living in Sydney, Australia. Born in a family of artists, he started drawing at the age of 5. He then pursued his art education in Xi’an Fine Arts College, Xi’an Fine Arts Academy, and finally obtained his Master of Art in Xi’an Jiaotong University.

Richard also became a teacher for 9 years in a Chinese university. He worked as a cartoonist and designer in a Chinese newspaper for 13 years where he produced a lot of oil paintings. After settling down in Sydney, he began to focus on watercolour. 

Richard is an enthusiastic watercolourist with a very keen sense of color. This had been initially reflected in his oil paintings. Focusing primarily now on portraiture, Richard will share his love of the watercolour medium with us.

He vividly captures the characteristics and nature of his subjects. His paintings not only witness his exquisite techniques and coloring skills, but also the deep influence of classical art upon him. He has also received numerous awards as an artist.
