Sydney born artist Ginger Ren Jones-Evans will host her inaugural solo exhibit on Friday 5th April 2019. This will be launched by the iconic Australian fashion designer and author Alannah Hill at Potts Point.
Alannah Hill, for those who have not worn her clothes, is a magnificent designer of clothes. She has been around for quite some time and her work never ceases to amaze me. Although very expensive, I simply love the materials Alannah uses as well as her styles.
But back to Ginger, who is the main person in this article! She began painting in 2014 when she was just three years old and is rather excited to be able to share her work.
On display will be eleven acrylic paintings and a video of behind-the-scenes footage of Ginger working in her studio. The gallery space will be mainly taken over with Ginger's major large-scale works starting at four meters in length!
Ginger says "I really love to mix my own colours and get up high to look down at my work. Painting always makes me feel happy."
Ginger's main aim is to become a professional artist. Excitement matters a great deal in Ginger's works of art. Her work showcases the delight of childhood spontaneity and complete freedom. She enjoys being interactive with her paintings. She loves to paint big flowing movements and going over the large-scale canvas with big brushes. Her paintings have a relaxed energy and she paints with her whole form.
Ginger mostly works with abstract designs and themes. Her paintings are bright, simple and pure expressions of her mind and body.
Dale's goal is for Ginger is to explore her creative side without interference or guidance from him. He would like her to focus on her own "freedom of thought and creative intuition." Dale set up the studio and once the brush is in her hand, it is all about Ginger. Dale says technique will be introduced along the way.
Ginger's father is Australian restaurateur Lindsay Jones-Evans who is the founder of Sydney favourites Jones The Grocer and The Victoria Room. He is also the owner of Melbourne's MeatworksCo, and he believes in empowering Ginger through self-belief.
Ginger went to the Rudolph Steiner preschool and now attends a progressive primary school that teaches children to be creative and successful. Her father wants her to have an extraordinary life where she can choose whatever she wants to do herself.
Her Chinese-born mother, Shengnan Ren, also encourages her daughter's love of art as well as her strong bond with her uncle. Her mother believes that Ginger is an artist at heart and that Ginger is learning her painting techniques in a fun and happy environment.
Ginger's opening night is on Friday 5th April, starting at 6.00 pm at 110 Brougham Street, Potts Point. The exhibition runs from Saturday 6th through to Sunday 7th April. All artworks are for sale with prices starting at $1200.
