Since moving to Tasmania in 2007, Jan Jefferys has been greatly influenced by living beside the ever-changing water of the D’Entrecasteaux Channel.
Her practice involves painting with oil and wax medium on canvas, also works on paper with water colour, linocut and mixed media.
“The water of the Channel has metaphorically seeped (and sometimes flooded) into my work. I enjoy being able to create luscious images of water overlaid with drawings and textures that playfully allude to my memories, longings and desires.”
Ange Cooper grew up in Tasmania, surrounded by bushland and sea, her passion for the natural setting has always been present in her art.
Teetering somewhere between semi-abstract and the real, Ange works with oil paints or printmaking, using colour, texture and expressive mark making to distil the landscape around her into lyrical gestures.
“My work is based predominantly around the Australian landscape with shack-like houses dotted throughout the environment or some small suggestion of a human made object.”
