Joint Exhibitors for June 2022

Julie & Eric Cook

Born in South Africa and having lived in Spain, Julie and Eric, (Mother and son), began their art journey together in 2017 soon after arriving in Australia when Eric enrolled in Certificate III Visual Arts at Tafe.  He required medical support for seizures and thus Julie enrolled as well. This self-curated exhibition is the culmination of 2 years of studies finishing at Advanced Diploma level.

Eric’s love of portraiture is illustrated in this body of work entitled “Intriguing Characters”.   He has used acrylic paint to paint famous people and movie characters that interest him as he strives to convey their “presence” on a more personal level, as if they were standing in front of you.

Julie has extensively explored the use of the various shades of blue, in her body of work, “Out of the Blue”, incorporating them in some form, and sometimes minute quantities, in almost every colour mixed in the colour pallets.

The acrylic paintings in this exhibition convey her impressions of typical Sunshine Coast seascapes and have been inspired by her love of local vistas.

The Art Wall is open to the general public to view Monday to Friday 9.30am – 4.00pm.
