This exhibition at gaffa gallery, Sydney has brought together 2 artists who have known each other for many years. Fleur de Rouge is less a stroll down memory lane but a modern-day experiment with colour, composition, and form.
It asks the question, ‘What happens when two artists decide to exhibit together for the first time after many years of artistic exchange and involvement?’ The idea of making an art garden developed from discussions about nature and light, the cultivation of artistic growth, the propagation of ideas, and a cross-pollination of 2 different approaches and methods to art-making practice.
Tasha and Jen have collaborated in the elements of design and manifested the beauty they see in nature.
They use a variety of dramatic forms from traditional oil and watercolour paintings using sustainable materials, and installations using plastic straws, found objects and common-place materials. These two artists understand the exquisiteness of common flowers in gardens from generations of artists gone before.
They reflect on their processes and have the ability to represent the diverse nature of flowering plants in an enriching and contemporary way. Jen and Tasha create floral spiritual installation arrangements together with the beauty of French gardens, abstract forms of rouge, gold and greenery.
