Artist and author Rosa Fedele, daughter of Italian migrants to Australia, was forbidden from pursuing an artistic career. Finally able to follow her vocation in adulthood, she studied at the prestigious Julian Ashton Art School, Sydney.
Unconstrained by conventional expectations, her work is genre-defying – slipping between portraiture and still life to vintage cars, often veering off into the world of whimsy. Her preferred medium is oil, her style a blend of figurative, illustrative and modern realism, indulging in the dramatic use of light and colour.
“I’m passionate about preserving wonderful old vintage and classic cars on canvas; reflections and sunshine flashing off seductively curvaceous chrome, the patina of old duco, bumpers wrapped lovingly around steel bodies, the layers of colour and texture and, of course, delicious red rust.”
Dream Machines will take you on a heart-warming and nostalgic ride in your favourite classic convertible, Italian silk scarf billowing in the breeze and faithful hound by your side.
