Barbara Swindells

Barbara is interested in the concepts and principles used to set up expressive abstract and semi abstract compositions by the application of compositional elements such as colour, texture, line, surface and space. Barbara uses mainly oils and acrylics, although watercolour, inks and charcoal will be present, colours red, orange, yellow, blue purple and green always exist in her paintings and they are also the Noongar aboriginal seasonal colours. Barbara's intention is to use weathered embossed tin, linoleum, plaster, fillers, glues and sand on surfaces like MDF wood, canvas, ceramic tiles and an assortment of different papers, and may use a combination of these to support images she needs to relate her story, where the cruel unstoppability of time triggers fragments of memories such as the rust patina on roofs, houses built on fading colourful stilts, peeling paint on a child's bicycle or perhaps Northern Territory rainbow lorakeets and tree bark.

When: 20 October -16 November 2022
