Obsessed with colour, form, bold strokes and graphic shapes, my paintings are driven by my emotions following life experiences or topics I am passionate about. 

About the Artist

Kate Dolan

Inspired by colours, forms and vistas found in the natural world, Kate Dolan is drawn to views of vast open spaces that occur both naturally and through the manipulation of man. Through her paintings, Dolan translates her emotional responses and experiences of the world. The loose spontaneity of brush strokes and gradually layered textures that she creates is sometimes interrupted with precise and determined forcefulness, such as in her Salt Flats series, whereby streaks of horizontal or vertical lines slice between areas of subtly built colour. The Patchwork series, initially inspired by the salt ponds of Western Australia, deliver a more equal balance of energy and tranquility across the canvas - textures and colours have been layered to create the most captivating compositions.

Having initially studied and worked in advertising, Dolan is a self-taught artist, who is constantly pushing the boundaries of her own creative practice. She has an innate talent for creating unusual yet compelling colour combinations and experimental forms - from geometric to expressionistic - each painting by Dolan promises to excite and enchant the viewer.

Fipé Gouge Merrall

Fipé Gouge Merrall

The monumental forms that Gouge-Merrall renders strike us as almost dream-like and metaphysical, their facial features obscured against the blocks and pools of colour that act as stages, props, and backdrops for each figure. The artist’s memories of moments and places inform the colours, textures and mood conveyed in each artwork, from bursts of bright colour reminiscent of her home city of Sydney to the forest greens and glacial blues that can be found in the landscapes of Sweden.
Jemma Day

Jemma Day

Using water-based oil paint, with wholly unique effect, Jemma Day paints directly onto wall-mounted canvases in her tranquil and light-filled studio overlooking the narrow Lanes of Brighton, usually working on multiple pieces simultaneously to maintain the momentum that creates such energetic paintings.
