Exhibition: Andrea Shaw, To and From
To and From is a collection of abstract landscape paintings coming together from time spent in the bushy, brambly and wind protected paths behind shorelines of a handful of Australian beaches (predominantly the Victorian Surf Coast).
Andrea Shaw is a multidisciplinary artist living and working on the beautiful Surf Coast with her husband and son. Drawing from her studies in landscape architecture and textile design, strong relationships between colour, pattern, space and landscape inform her works. Andrea’s paintings are abstract representations of the beautiful landscape on her back doorstep.
The subtle changes of shapes, hues and textures witnessed and experienced walking the same paths over and over at different times of day to and from the beach come together in each painting. Rather than representing a moment in time the works come together intuitively, from memory and a collection of snapshots are pieced together to form each work.
