"Thou art weighed in the balances, & art found wanting...to be hanged" is Natalie Sunderland's debut solo exhibition currently enriching the walls at the Green Oven Cafe. There's a total of fourteen exquisite oil paintings of intricate detail & vivid colours, all on canvas & varying in sizes. Dramatic in their intensity, encompassing spiritual themes & lush rich textures, all resulting in truly mesmerising compositions. Nat's an amazingly gifted & talented artist. A self-taught emerging artist on the scene with no formal arts training to boot! Awe-inspiring! Nat's also my friend & I'm proud as punch that she has finally taken the plunge to bravely put herself out there & share her beautiful art with the public. If you live in Brisbane head on over to the Green Oven to check out this absorbing & sublime exhibition.
Here's a sneak peak at one of the walls...
The photo below is of one of my favourite paintings from the exhibit. It was inspired by a 1960s Barsony (aka "black lady") lamp. It's a large scale (approx 100cm x 100cm) stylish & fun piece with a sassy retro groove. Tres chic!
