Local Yarra Valley artist Tania Chanter is holding her first solo exhibition at The Memo gallery in Healesville.
The official opening is on Friday 1st February, 2019 at 7pm. The exhibition will be officially opened by Gary Collier the director at Tusk Gallery and entertainment will be provided by internationally acclaimed Paris Zachariou.
The exhibition is titled ‘Horizons’ and centers around Tania’s love of the natural world.
While painting began as a creative experiment with her children, she never anticipated falling so completely in love with the expression and freedom it provides.
For Tania, overthinking is antithesis to her artistic practice. Drawing from the immediate, nature-rich context of her home in Victoria’s Yarra Valley, her gestural brushstrokes reflect an intuitive process that is ruled by emotion. Whether directing her focus on a vase of flowers, a choppy moonlit seascape or a sparse, darkened promontory, the layers, textures and colours of Tania’s work bleed onto the page in the same uninterrupted way, lending the final product a cohesive yet idiosyncratic patina.
Tania’s Exhibition is proudly supported by Creative Victoria, Culture Tracks, Yarra Ranges Council, Tusk Gallery, Morgan Vineyards and Red Bilby.
