Animate: to give life to; make alive; to move or stir; to motivate. Animate: an exhibition of works to stir the emotions. Join us for a visual collaboration by artists Bronwyn Schmack and Liana Zverina, spanning nature and beast, wild and tame. Paintings which emanate feelings of joy, comfort, warmth, vibrancy and contemplation.
Bronwyn’s vivid and detailed portraits of animals capture the fleeting expressions of her subjects, which reveal their essential character. Using a combination of watercolour mediums and gouache on paper, this group of works is a celebration of colour, incorporating vibrant backgrounds to enhance the effect of playful portraiture.
Liana’s highly textural, slightly abstract, mixed media works on wood, focus on nature – flora and fauna – and their respective complexities while existing in our human dominated world. What lies beneath is at play in these paintings. Upon closer look, they reveal a kaleidoscope of colour and hidden meanings, seeking to inspire the viewer’s curiosity.
6pm on 3 June.
