Art alive with colour and sensitivety
Gabbie Lancaster is an artist with amazing talent. She is like a breath of fresh air and has a way of painting nature in a display of colour that is almost unbelievable. Jade is dedicated to the Morten Bay fig trees and the birds that live in them.
I attended Gabbie's Art exhibition Elemental last October and was very impressed with her talent. I wrote an article about Elemental, so Jade will be my second review for Gabbie and It is a privilege to be doing it.
SANCTUARY was awarded the mayoral prize at the trees for life exhibition, in april this year. by gabbie Lancaster
Gabbie's art overpowers the senses. One is drawn into her deep connection with nature when viewing her paintings. The following words are part of a poem she wrote. It beautifully reflects her emotions while painting a Moreton bay fig tree. These trees on Anzac parade are under threat of being destroyed due to the construction of the light rail project in Sydney.
(Sitting in the shade under the canopy of a majestic fig tree. Observing, drawing, painting and tracing her lines with a sensitive touch. I feel calmed at peace protected even enchanted.)
The painting above is a black and white shot of Gabbie painting in her studio at home. Gabbie Lancaster is an artist who lives in Sydney. She has been an art teacher for many years. Gabbie's paintings are an expression of the connection between the human form, nature and the landscape.
The painting of the owl is probably my favourite painting. Owls are fascinating creatures; the eyes of the owl are very expressive. If you are a nature lover who also loves art you should really view her paintings. Her talent is rare and undeniably good.
The last painting you will view for Gabbie's exhibition is shown in her unique style where nature blends with the human form. Green is used in this exquisite painting of a girl. It is delicate and shows the female form as nature intended. Its intention is to represent mother earth in all its wonder.
Gabbie Lancaster's exhibition Jade will have two special events. The opening night on Thursday 3rd of November, 6pm to 9pm. Also Sunday afternoon 6th of November for tea and talk from 2pm. Gabbie will talk about her art and encourage conversation on the subject.
Gabbie's painting are priced between $500 and $2,500 dollars.
