Artists  Karen Marki & Monica Gewurz, present colourful & textured pieces evocative of natural & urban environments.

Monica Gewurz creates evocative & purposely imperfect paintings inspired by nature’s geometric repetitions, patinas, time-worn layers & the amazing colours of dawn & dusk. She applies thick layers of acrylic paint & medium with palette knives, resulting in a 3-D effect suggesting organic energy, flow & movement.

Karen Marki is inspired by the colours & textures of urban & natural environments as they locally coexist. Her works are created by scraping, sanding & manipulating pigments, creating layers of acrylic paint built onto the canvas like an excavation site; encouraging viewers to look more closely to see what lies beneath.

Plan your visit to the Kay Meek Arts Centre.
