The Shop Gallery

Every day, 10am to 6pm Thursday 22 February to Wednesday 28 February

Opening event 6.30pm 23 February

Iris Toren is a painter based in Sydney’s East.  Her work is inspired by nature, both local and abroad in Europe, New Zealand, Japan and Hawaii – the ocean, the sky, trees and flowers, birds, insects, and animals. She is also captivated by the classical sculpture of Europe and sketching these is one of her cherished pursuits. 

Iris was traditionally trained in drawing and painting at the iconic Julian Ashton Art School in the 1980s, receiving her diplomas there and being awarded the prestigious Henry Gibbons Drawing Prize.

Since that time, her life has evolved both as an artist and practitioner/teacher of yoga and Iris sees these parallel paths as complimentary and part of her spiritual journey.  Through her art practice she endeavours to access states of flow and deepen her connection with nature and beauty. Each work is the result of creative meditation.

It has been a very productive year for Iris.  The show will include paintings in watercolour, acrylic, oil, mixed media as well as drawings. More that 75 artworks will be on display.

Iris’ motivation is two-fold – to advance towards her full potential as an artist, and to spread joy and cultivate love and connection to nature through her art.

Half of the profits from Iris’ artwork sales are donated to animal welfare charities.
