Jennings Kerr Opens / New dynamics : new vision
A huge welcome Jennings Kerr, an exciting new gallery for the the Southern Highlands!
Jennings Kerr is a contemporary art gallery based in Robertson, Australia. The gallery aims to bring a dynamic program to the area of Robertson, a regional town in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales. The gallery is committed to presenting leading Australian artists alongside early to mid career artists.
Artists currently represented by Jennings Kerr include:
Ochre Lawson’s paintings un pack her connection to the natural world. The paintings are intimate in their focus on microcosm and habitat. The mark making is loose and free, the bold landscapes fall into abstraction but beam with positivity. Lawson captures the essence of a place, the vibrancy and wonder found in the works reflects a deep respect for the wilderness. This passion and connection to ecosystems grew from many years of work as an environmental activist.
Imbi Davidson is a visual artist living in the Northern Rivers region, New South Wales. Her work explores the interstices between painting, landscape, plants, textiles, abstraction and mark making.
Ceara Metlikovec is an Australian artist. In 2017 she presented her first solo show with Fox Jensen McCrory in Auckland New Zealand, and then her first solo show in 2018 in Sydney at Fox Jensen, from which the Art Gallery of New South Wales acquired a piece. Her work has been represented in Art Basel Hong Kong, Auckland Art Fair and Sydney Contemporary as well as the curated projects Carbon (2017), Portrait Without a Face (2018, catalogue), Evenfall (2019) and Analogue (2020, catalogue).
Making photographs, for Ryrie, has always been about having something worthwhile to say. It was indeed the photographers who said most about there own lives, and in fact photographed them, that have had the most profound influence on Ryrie’s work.
Bonnie Porter Greene
Bonnie Porter Greene is a multi-disclipinary creative – born, residing and creating in the Shoalhaven. She explores her love of the landscape – both built and natural, through reflective studio practise, en plein air excursions resulting in direct and honest painted memories of the landscape. Always displaying a large element of connection and concern for the environment in Bonnie’s intuitive gestural mark, she rarely fails to conjure a creative response to the landscape or events that have impacted significantly upon her.
David Hamilton is an Australian artist and art teacher based in Melbourne. His practice focuses upon painting and drawing working within the traditional genres of landscape, portraiture and still life. Hamilton is an artist who recognises that working within a tradition need not equate to a restatement of conventions, rather the challenge is to critically re-examine them and to explore ways to reconfigure these for the purpose of self-expression.
Tanya Wales is an abstract painter based in South Australia. The scale and tranquillity of Tanya’s works invite the audience to pause, to breathe, to feel. Spurning the use of familiar reference points to elicit an emotional response, the flowing forms and fields of colour provoke deeply personal and diverse interpretations. A confluence of techniques including pouring, transparent layers, fine brushwork and painterly marks are used to create an otherworldly narrative balanced by a sense of ambiguity and the illusion of simplicity.
