True Colours - an exhibition by Gayle Rodgers


Gayle responds to colours of nature, an autumn leaf, a dry gum leaf, rocks, the ocean, things that have a simple presence. She is very conscious of the environment and the impact people have on it, and her art is often a response to those concerns.

Her paintings are created in an abstract style with a fluid, marbling of colours and shapes depicting movement. She adds simple white bird forms to represent the fragility of our bird life.

Her glass collages are an ongoing experiment with colours, decals and shards of glass. She rearranges them into a pleasing ensemble, focusing on the spontaneity of the medium and the serendipity created as one colour blends into another.

Colour is the main influential back ground to all her works.
