Five works exhibited this year by renowned Queensland artist Gary Myers.
Gary’s art is immediately identifiable as Australian, with a deep connection to the outback and a passion for the history of Australia.His style is unique, providing glimpses of larrikinism that abandon the traditional norms of landscape painting.
He has held over 30 successful solo exhibitions - the first at Brisbane's Dunwell Gallery in 1971 and most recently at Cronulla Art Gallery in April 2013 and Graydon Gallery Brisbane in 2014. His artworks are highly sought after throughout Australia as well as by overseas collectors. His engaging interpretation of the Australian landscape has led to overseas exhibitions in Brighton, England and in Shanghai, China. A New York exhibition and a return to China are at the planning stage.
Sunshine Coast Artist Mel Brigg will again be supplying several works for sale at the exhibition...
THE STARS IN MY HEART - 2015
76 x 101 cm
One of the most influential street artists to emerge from New York, DAIN combines the visual language of graffiti with collaged old portraits of Hollywood glamour stars. Crossing genres and often working single pieces back and forth between the street and studio, DAIN combines wheatpasting, silkscreening, spray paint, collage, and acrylic. His process begins with a black-and-white photo that he layers with old advertisements, printed fragments, logos, and miscellaneous smaller images. He then begins adding paint; his unmistakable trademark is the “circle and drip” around the eye of his subjects. DAIN views his work as a confrontation between the destructive gestures of graffiti and the femininity of his Hollywood subjects.

"Earthbound" By Brent Redding - Oil on canvas
Brent Redding is a self-taught full-time contemporary artist based in Napier, New Zealand. He has had three solo exhibitions in Australia and two in New Zealand, as well as numerous inclusions in group shows etc. Brent also works as a muralist and tutor. His works are motivated by a search for pattern and design, and he often suppresses depth in his paintings in order to enhance the two dimensional arrangement. Many interests may appear in, or influence his works: music, poetry, dance, the human condition, and a keen sense of the absurd. He is constantly experimenting and his style remains fluid, but currently aspects of surrealism, futurism, art nouveau, pop-art and other genres appear in his works.
