Katrina Collins, Heidi Jackson and Anita Tesoriero have a longstanding connection as artists and art educators and share an extensive exhibition and professional history over 2 decades.
All three artists are painters, primarily responding to colour, light and a love of form, illustrated in the painterly vibrancy of Katrina’s abstract compositions, Heidi’s subjective representation of the landscape and Anita’s lively, expressive figurative work.
Katrina Collins’ paintings celebrate colour and pattern, creating vivid systems of line, space and form that reiterate her dedication to the most essential aspects of abstraction.
Heidi Jackson’s work is always a personal response to place. Her paintings capture fleeting moments or render more sustained experiences of the landscape into compositions that are defined by tracts of sky, bodies of water, country roads and the personally significant destinations they lead to.
As an artist, Anita Tesoriero finds herself drawn to the vibrant energy and joy that people experience on a sunny day at Wylie’s baths, a picturesque tidal pool in Sydney. Her series of paintings aim to capture the essence of these moments, to convey the sense of relaxation and freedom that comes with immersing oneself in the cool, refreshing water on a hot day.
