Heidi Jackson and Katrina Collins have a longstanding connection as both artists and art teachers who have shared an extensive exhibition and professional history over 2 decades.
Both are painters, who primarily respond to colour, light, and a love of form illustrated in the painterly vibrancy of Katrina’s compositions and Heidi’s subjective representation of the landscape.
Heidi Jackson’s work is always a personal response to place. Her paintings compress 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.
Informed by a lifetime observing colour relationships in her environment, Katrina Collins paints abstractions that celebrate colour and pattern. Katrina’s work creates vivid systems of colour, space and form that reiterate her dedication to the most essential aspects of abstraction.
Heidi Jackson was awarded the Glebe Art Prize in 2019 and Katrina Collins was awarded the RAW prize for best emerging artist in 2017.
They live and work in the Inner West.
Opening event 1pm-5pm Saturday 22 August.
