LIVING in York for the past 37 years, the Wheatbelt environment has had a strong influence on artist Ann-Marie Boyle – as evidenced in her latest exhibition.
Running from October 9 to 27, Water and Clay is on show at The York Mill Boiler Room Gallery highlighting her work with water colours and first foray into sculpture.
“The earthiness of presentation captivates a quirkiness and humour that can be challenging to the imagination,” Boyle said.
“The water colours are a representation of Wheatbelt scenes which have been pared down to vibrant design rhythm and colour in blocks of colour and line.”
Boyle has worked as an artist in many mediums and has had six single and three joint exhibitions in Perth and York.
Her works are also held in private collections in Denmark, France, America, Japan and the UK.
The York Mill Managing Director John Langton added: “Following on from the huge success of August’s The Colours of My Life comes this wonderful combination exhibition from Ann-Marie in two mediums.
“Ann-Marie is an established York artist and I’m delighted to be hosting her first exhibition featuring sculpture, along with her distinctive water colour style.
“Having been given a sneak preview of the sculpture works, those able to come and view them are in for a treat.”
Water and Clay runs from October 9 to 27 in the Boiler Room Gallery. Admission is free.
The York Mill is at 10 Henrietta Street, York, and the gallery is open 10am to 4pm, Wednesday to Sunday. For more details, call 9641 2900 or go to www.theyorkmill.com.au.
