ASHLEY FROST is represented in Australia by Stella Downer Fine Art. His recent urban and cityscape works, in both oil on board and mixed media on paper, evoke the diversity, colour and convergence of urban elements around Sydney; the curious and vibrant places, where the city’s periphery converges with the inner suburbs; at the anomalous moment where day ends and night begins. These works have developed from landscape works centered on the cities of New York, Beijing and Brasilia where the artist has been conducting research and exhibiting his work.
Frost has had three solo shows in New York (2000, 2002 and 2004) and solo exhibitions in Sydney since 1997, with his most recent show, Urban Patinas in 2012. Frost was also represented in the 2012 Melbourne Art Fair.

TANYA STUBBLES describes herself as a social landscape painter. Her goal is to explore the Australian identity, it’s stories and pastimes. She seeks to create iconic images, which weave together stories of the land, its people and history. Through the use of nostalgic and sentimental elements sourced from all over Australia, Stubble’s creates works which speak to the people of their experiences. Construction offers a opening to access the subconscious through materials which in turn trigger the memories of childhood experiences and pastimes. Stubble’s explore both rural and industrial landscapes and defines herself as working in abstraction of the landscape. Her use of materials and the interpretations of the places are always constructed through a highly intuitive process.

In 2008 Stubbles returned to her rural roots, completing a residency at Bundanon. Stubbles was also chosen as a finalist in the prestigious Wynne prize at the AGNSW. Since commencing work in 2006 she has exhibited in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Alice Springs and China.

Love Minus Zero = No Limit
An exhibition of new Artworks by Zoltan Koteczky

Opening Wednesday 27th Nov 6-8pm

Mathematics is artistic excellence, sublimely pure and gives a absolute perfection which is characteristic of all great art" Bertrand Russell.

Dense with narrative meaning Koteczky’s work has emerged late in his career after a long, rich and often tumultuous life journey. The use
of written text and mathematical symbols may look very current but for
Koteczky it is part of an ongoing struggle: the search for meaning in
his art and life. In the face of the issues of his time, including the
sex ,love, no drugs and rock in roll , he often felt the need for
mathematical symbols for explanation in a simplistic palette of black
and white.

Ashley Frost, Theme Media.

ZOLTAN KOTECZKY.

Zoltan Koteczky has been involved and produced Theatre Productions
and Events in every major centre in Australia as well as producing major
events at the Sydney Olympics.
Zoltan has also produced shows in Europe, namely Berlin ,Hamburg, Vienna and Verona.
He has also lectured at various educational institutions including NIDA.
For the last few years he has been producing and marketing
various Arts Events in Sydney and Melbourne including producing an
exhibition of the Artworks of Bob Dylan.

At the same time Zoltan has quietly worked on his own artistic
pursuits and this current series explores the universe and the answer
to life in mathematical formulae. Recently Zoltan was in the The Balmain Art Show and the series of works sold out.

For me the use of symbols comes from the fact that I couldn’t
communicate in English when I arrived in Australia as a child. Then
from my teenage years onwards i travelled and worked behind the Iron
Curtain to all the Eastern European Countries where I didn’t speak
all the languages and still had to communicate. Anyway words can lie.
Numbers don’t.
" Zoltan Koteczky.

SKETCHES AND STUDIES

opening Wednesday 27th Nov, 6 – 8 pm

An informed artist will tell you that “a good piece of artwork is more than an image”; yet these days the general consensus seems to be that working from a photograph is acceptable.

By working from the photograph one is denied a variety of subtle sensory delights; and experiences only the image.

The importance of working from life is revealed in the works of artists prior to the photograph. Their works express superior draughtsmanship, sensitivity, deft technique and inventiveness.

I create studies and sketches purely from the life model; allowing all I learn and feel to manifest itself in my abstraction works.

Artist Biography

After finishing up 3 years at the Charlie Sheard studio school studying traditional oil techniques and several successful shows, I took the last year off and worked fulltime on my artwork.

Originally painting figurative subjects, this last year has seen me start an intense exploration of a pure abstract practice. I continue to paint figurative works from the live model for purposes of painting exercise and to transfer acquired skills, feelings and moods across to my abstract pieces.

I present a collection of my sketches and studies here.

Judy loves the vibrancy of colour, the calligraphic nature of line, exploring the sensuality of surface and fleeting effects of movement as she makes her strong gestural statements. She constantly challenges herself to depict aspects of her extensive travels in her dynamic work.

Global Gallery presents ‘Horsepower’, a collaborative exhibition by Mother and Daughter duo, Judy and Fiona Trick, and their dynamic collection of acrylic and oil paintings, works on paper and photographs. 

Judy’s passion for extensive travel worldwide and most recently to remote parts of Ethiopia and Uganda increased the momentum to explore modes of transport and it’s inherent metaphorical symbolism. Fiona captures the character of vehicles on colour and black and white film as she travels ‘off the beaten track’, around the world.

Fiona and Judy have shared their passion for life and Visual Arts over the last 30 years and are excited to launch their first collaborative exhibition.

Global Gallery presents a new series of oil paintings by John Moroney that explore the subway stations of the world. ‘No Exit’ turns candid moments of commuters into statements about our estrangement in our modern environment.

Taken from Jean Paul Sartre’s play of the same name, ‘No Exit’ looks at the subway station as a universal stage that validates Sartre’s ideas. In Moroney’s work, it is the billboards that we look to emulate and uphold, that have become a reflection of our prejudices and shallowness. Advertisements have activated these spaces to the point where photos of women become predatory and our surrounding landscapes have been drained of life.

Channeling Edward Hopper and James Gleeson via the likes of Francis Bacon, the artist employs minimalism and expressionism in equal parts to convey some of the feelings of detachment and isolation that these landscapes conjure.

John Moroney is a newcomer to the Australian art scene. After travelling the world for several years and absorbing the works of modern and old masters, he has returned with a desire to put forward his own view of the world. At the beginning of 2013 he opted to switch from his trade, working as a rigger on mining projects around Australia, and commence full time study at Newcastle Art School.

His output spans a variety of genres and mediums ranging from realism to abstraction, throughout this a constant theme that has emerged is his capturing of the human experience. With two awards already under his belt and a string of exhibitions in Newcastle and Sydney, ‘No Exit’ is the beginning of many good things to come.

‘The Underpinning’ is a series of paintings in oil on canvas by Ashlee Bucholtz, an emerging Artist compelled to give a voice to the unknown. Hung side by side you encounter large, confronting faces that make up a veneer that hides the real barrier.

This is where the smaller fractured, figurative paintings play their part; you now see what was left unsaid. The expressive mark-making consistently appears across the works to tie the paintings together. The history of the mark left behind tells the story.

“The things that underpin the human are what really fascinate me, for a veneer becomes deceptively pleasant. The unknown of an individual intrigues me. It is compelling, the things people carry that cannot be seen; this could be psychological, emotional, or something physical that is simply hidden beneath the surface.”

Ashlee Bucholtz, winner of the Carol Duval Memorial Painting Prize, at 26 years of age, is in her third year at Newcastle Hunter TAFE, studying an Advanced Diploma in Visual Arts. Majoring in painting and photography, her passion for art comes from within. Much of Ashlee’s work illuminates her very own individual experiences. The solvent-free painter works across a large range of mediums including drawing in conte and charcoal and painting in oil paints and inks.
