Brisbane based artists, Perrin Millard found a hidden love for oil painting in 2008. Although always interested in differing types of art mediums, oil painting quickly became a passion. Similarly, Emma Golder found her passions lie in painting, stoneware and porcelain and Raku art.
Both artists studied under Dale Marsh, an American singer songwriter, story teller and "self-admitted goodball" who bases himself in Arlington, Texas and pioneers the "acoustic folkletic" (you'll get what that means when you listen to his songs) style of music.
Having showed the occasional pieces of work in a number of art shows, 'Soften the Edges' is Perrin's first private exhibition. For the display, she has joined together with Golder and fellow artist and friend Taraneh Khoo to set up the exhibition with the intent of taking it's viewers on an exciting and exotic journey.
Soften The Edges" showcases over 70 of the artists' works produced during the past five years. Art fans will be able to view stoneware and porcelain, raku and oil and canvas still life portraits, landscapes and floral paintings - including Perrin's new interest in painting wedding bouquets.
The gorgeous soft lines and windswept appearances of the oil paintings is truly charming, while the raku and porcelain worksmanship cannot be faulted for its eclectic beauty. These truly talented artists, who truly are putting themselves and their work "out there" for the first time make the exhibition sparkle and it is worth a visit for any aspiring artist or fan out there.
The Percolator Gallery in Paddington will host the exhibition from the 12th to the 18th of March, with Dale Marsh attending on Saturday, 16th of March from 7:00 - 9:00pm.
