Dr George Masterwork - a sneak peek !!

We have a new addition to the Collectors' Gallery:

 

a spectacular 135 x 542 cm piece by the great Dr George Ward Tjapaltjarri titled Tingari

it has to be seen to be believed - make sure you visit the gallery soon to see this powerful piece - no doubt it will be the centrepiece of a corporate office (or a very lucky home!) in no time at all

Our Collector's Gallery was established two years ago to pay homage to the leaders of the Aboriginal Art movement which captured the attention of the world, and to the artists who keep that tradition and artistry flourishing. View our collectors' gallery here

Trevor ‘turbo’ Brown Exhibition Opens This Weekend

As I step into the charcoal gallery I feel as if I have been transported to the dreamtime; a time and place where all animals live in unspoiled harmony.  Turbo’s engaging pictorial style and irresistibly quirky critters have an unabashed loveliness to them.

His Tasmanian Tiger appears to be smiling right at you

 

While the Sixteen Pink Galahs are happy chatting amongst themselves, basking in the afternoon sun

 

Turbo’s work may seem naive in the simplicity of form, but there is an incredible energy in the dynamic composition, colour and line.

 

Using bright colours and bold outline, he usually works on a large scale and paints quickly using unmixed acrylic paint. His Engaging pictorial style and distinctive creatures from the dreamtime makes his works pulsate with an irresistible and syncopated beat.

Here, Turbo depicts two wombats – one above ground and the second appears to be nestled safely in their borrow, almost as if viewed from an aerial perspective.  It is this innovative and bold style that has seen Turbo achieve substantial recognition in just a few short years, as well as carve out a significant exhibition history. 

This will be a very fun opening weekend - the exhibition is a burst of colour and life; a celebration of Turbo and of Koorie culture and spirit. I encourage you all to visit the gallery this weekend and spend some time in Turbo’s Dreamtime.

Our Clients are Loving: Selma Coulthard

Selma Coulthard 'Lerra Pinta (Finke River)-SCOG0071' 76 x 106cm

As soon as we receive new works by this brilliant artist they are gone within a matter of days! In some instances we don’t even have the time to hang them on our gallery walls!

Selma has spent years representing herself prior to approaching Kate Owen Gallery to represent her in 2013. In that time, Selma has continued to develop her own distinctive style and she has rapidly progressed to be one of our most highly regarded and sought after artists.

We are thrilled with Selma’s latest body of work and her new, well-deserved status as one of our ‘most-popular’ artists. Her new body of work should arrive in the gallery in a matter of weeks & we will notify all our KO Gallery Club members as soon as they arrive.

If you’re not a KO Gallery Club Member & would like to stay informed on the latest news, sign up here.
