Student/Artist work made at our workshops in Melbourne.
These were made just this week by three different artists. Congratulations Galia for the striking collage of body/machine, Congrats Helen for the earthy abstract painting, there are human forms within this painting, I can see them, Congrats Jan for the abstract that we discussed as accidentally having cirrus and other cloud formations within it.
Great work everyone.
It can be quite difficult to change from observational drawing/painting to abstract and to collage. My advice would be to keep it very simple, complexity, if needed can come later. I do prefer collage to be easy to read and therefore with less distractions. The focal point is usually a surreal image that needs to be absorbed by the viewer and this should be enough without clouding a work with things happening on the periphery.
Have a great weekend everyone.
Art Workshop available in Alphington Victoria.
I have a workshop available this Wednesday afternoon with only two other people as I try to cap it to only three. You can paint or make mixed media collage in a very relaxed no pressure environment.
Let me know if interested. Date is 20th Feb 2-5pm.
Experience or beginner are both ok.
Let me know if you are interested and we can discuss what materials you have or do not have. If it’s a one off class I’m sure I can supply for you.
Alphington Open Studio art weekend is coming up 24th and 25th November.
Hope to see some of you at this very special event this year. We have thirteen artists including some special guest artists exhibiting. You will see my collage and my still life paintings plus from everyone else you will see either sculpture, jewellery, tapestry, textiles, glass, ceramics, mosaic, drawing and more. I hope you will come along with a friend or a neighbour and take a stroll around Alphington to see us next weekend. All artwork will be for sale.
Favourite colour is all kinds of yellow.
This is a small painting of around 25 x 25cm using acrylic on board. This is one of a series of four still-life works. They are all framed in blondewood box frames. I will post some of the others later. Loved making them and using super vibrant colours. I have used a limited palette as I always do however I will always introduce alizarin crimson for apples. So only four colours plus white. I think you can call that pretty limited.
Surreal 3D collage assemblage.
The newest series of works I have been making are assemblages or collages of found images of things that I love. The selected images merge with other things that I love which then become brand new surreal works in a new context. This is a work in progress, almost finished. I hope you can see the love and or tenderness between the two people as that is what made me want to put them both on a pedestal with an ecclesiastical framing behind them. The horse, bones and wood are references to their past and a link with the earth.
Art, Workshops, Christmas.
I had an enormous year of art and exhibitions this year.
I was invited to exhibit at Holy Trinity in East Melbourne as part of the Eastern Art Festival.
I exhibited with the Out of the Box Group of Artists at Cambridge Studio Gallery.
I had the Alphington Open Studios in November.
I also arranged a fundraiser for several of my art workshop regulars. It was their first time exhibiting so I let them pick the charity which of course made them work harder. I then encouraged them all to bring along 5 or 6 friends each to the opening. We almost had a sell out, plus a couple of commissions for future work. The charity was for the Tiwi Island Girls Football Team. They have to travel long distances to play so our efforts helped their travel fees.
I’m hoping for an exhibition with a couple of wonderful artist friends in 2018. A bit early to tell you much about that. I am keen for you to see my new website annewarrenart.com as it will have information about workshops and exhibitions which may be of interest. Please have a look and stay in touch.
Here are a few pics from this year. By the way I love the snow in December on this site even if it is really really hot here.
See below my Christmas Card for you. Merry Christmas. xx

Melbourne East Arts Festival art exhibition August 18-20th.
I was so pleased to be invited to exhibit works at the Melbourne East Arts Festival on Friday 18th August to Sunday 20th August. Inside this beautiful little church, alongside the magnificent stained glass windows I will be exhibiting a solo still-life exhibition of paintings made especially for this occasion. In another room I will be exhibiting a selection of collage work with the highly regarded and beautiful sculpture of Michael Meszaros.
By the way I have heard that the wine and food flows at this event.
Hope you can come along and join us at the Friday evening opening at 8.30pm (note there is a $10 fee as it is a fundraiser for the church) and please also keep in mind the other calendar of events available during this weekend.
