Artful Music and Musical Art : Synesthetic Art – Tracey Roberts

 Link to www.traceyroberts.com.au Tracey Roberts is a visual artist as well as an accomplished singer-songwriter, musician and performing artist.

Her collection of artwork, entitled Resonance, is a limited edition series of prints.
They are original, hand-drawn black and white illustrations which have been digitally coloured and embellished to create rich, vibrant and sensuous visual interpretations of the various effects created by different genres of music as well as particular musical instruments.
Her work is also an exploration into the intriguing world of those gifted with music-colour synesthesia.

Synesthesia is a neurological condition in which one sense involuntarily invokes another sense - in Tracey's case, she sees colours and shapes when she hears music.

Many people are synesthetic to a greater or lesser extent - and most do not realize that have this quality of perception. Tracey reflects this through visual art, colouring the images to that which she 'sees' in her music.

Accompanying this most interesting and vibrantly colourful art, will be a series of workshops, concerts, talks and information sessions that will encourage people to understand how they perceive art, and music - perhaps in quite new ways.

The exhibition will include a number of performances by this very talented musician/artist and some of her friends.

Launched on 4th February 7:30 - 9:30pm Tracey introduced her work and music with 15 - 20 min interactive performance.

Launch: Thursday, 15 July from 6pm.

 Artists In Residence - Lilia and Val Varetsa Here is some information about Lilia and Val Varetsa. Lilia and Valentin emphasize simple pleasures and inspirational messages through their paintings. Their goal as an artist is to touch people of all faiths, bring peace and joy into their lives, and inspire people to create their own place of refuge. Place of refuge - a place where the transient things of life give way to the things that matter most. A place which focuses on faith and family, a loving home and the people who know and love us - a place where the light of love shines most brightly. It is always difficult to present serious ideas in an art context. Lilia and Valentin make use of the symbol to their paintings. The symbol of idyllic subjects such as gardens, flowers. The beauty of nature is the peaceful and inspiring themes. The lotus flower comes out of the dirty mud under the water yet they still keep their pureness, freshness and beauty. Lilia and Valentin have worked together for a long time, bringing beauty and power of realities to realities of art through the images they create. Lilia's and Valentin's artworks are held in collections at the National Museum in Belarus and Ukraine, National Library of Belarus, National Congress Library of USA, University of Rome in Italy and in private collections in Australia and around the world.

 Link to Katsuya's website  Katsuya Information about Katsuya. Described by one critic as 'the painter's painter'. "Katsuya was born in Kyoto, and after initial training there, completed his study in Paris. The range of his work includes gentle and incredibly evocative landscapes, such as that pictured, religious themes and portraits. His work is in private and public collections in such diverse places as Australia, Ireland, or India. Katsuya's art philosophy is well described by as "...inspiring, one who transforms the world with their creativity, their good hearts and their positive thinking" Greg Roberts Website.

'Place' – The Second Post Card Project

This is one of our multifaith arts events of 2010. Artists from Islamic, Jewish, Christian and indigenous cultural/faith traditions have shared their thoughts about their 'place' - societal, cultural, historical, geographical with the other artists in the project. Everyone has a sense of place - geographic, social and with shared values and traditions. From these, our communities derive. The sharing of these qualities help provide each community with their identity and a form of validation. In the 2nd Postcard Project artists Sarrita King (indigenous), Abdul Abdullah (Muslim), Katsuya (Christian) and Shoshanna Jordan (Jew) shared their sense of identity as well as their personal artistic perspective on faith, community and life. Through a 'round robin', the artists created and exchanged a series of cards with the others, building a body of work which forms the substance of this exhibition. Through the eyes of each artist we perceive their sense of community, connection, as well as the feeling that the artist is always an observer - living within, but with a sense of detachment from their society. It is this, which in part, gives the artistic vision and perception its validity and authenticity.
This exhibition is curated by Andrew Blackburn (Director of Kinross House) and Jennifer Dudley (Outback Aboriginal Art)
Launched: Thursday, 12 August 7:00 - 8:30pm

Sarrita King:  Sarrita King

Sarrita King is the younger sister to fellow artist, Tarisse King and daughter to the late, highly regarded artist, William King Jungala (1966 - 2007). Sarrita inherits her Australian Aboriginality from her father who was part of the Gurindji tribe from the Northern Territory. The Gurindji tribe came to public attention during the 1960s and 1970s when members employed by the Wave Hill cattle station led a landmark case which became the first successful land rights claim in Australia. It is this same strong sense of self and pride that Sarrita embodies and it fuels her drive to paint her totemic landscape.

Sarrita spent most of her youth growing up in Darwin in the Northern Territory. Not far from where her ancestors inhabited, it is here that her connection to her Aboriginality and subsequently the land was able to grow. Her exposure to the imperious weather and extreme landscape has provided the theme for her works of art, since she began painting at age 16. Rolling sand hills, cracking lightning and thunderstorms, torrential rain, fire, desert and tangled bush are all scathing environmental factors that shaped her forefather's lives and also her own. Depicting these elements in her paintings, Sarrita provides a visual articulation of the earth's language.

Stylistically, Sarrita utilises traditional Aboriginal techniques such as 'dotting' but also incorporates unorthodox techniques inherited from her late father, as well as self-developed practices. Her art is a fusion of the past, present and future and represents the next generation of artists who have been influenced by both their indigenous history, and current Western upbringing. Sarrita creates frenetic energy on the canvas with her Lightning series and searing heat with her Fire series. Her aesthetic has a universal appeal and provides an entry point for people to experience the power and uniqueness of the Australian landscape and its harsh climate. On a world scale, her depictions couldn't be more seasonable and well-timed.


 'Southern Cross' by Abdul Abdullah Abdul Abdullah

Abdul graduated in 2008 from Curtin University and now works and lives in Melbourne, Victoria. In 2009 Abdul received the Highly Commended in the NYSPP at the National Portrait Gallery in Canberra and was named a Perth Rising Star by Insite Magazine. "The image is really strong and the painting is beautiful", [Stuart Bailey] said. "It has a real power due to its understatement and the ambiguous pose of the subject, who is casually scratching his beard while wearing a crown. For Abdullah, it's a bit of rejection of the popular understanding of an Australian identity."

"Painting is the best thing in the world. There is nothing I enjoy more. When I'm painting the room could be on fire and I wouldn't care. I don't know if my works will ever affect people or change anyone, but I'll do it anyway, for the rest of my life." Abdul Abdullah

 Katsuya - The Keys of Heaven - Charcoal on Paper

Katsuya was described by one critic as 'the painter's painter'. "Katsuya was born in Kyoto, and after initial training there, completed his study in Paris. The range of his work includes gentle and incredibly evocative landscapes, such as that pictured, religious themes and portraits. His work is in private and public collections in such diverse places as Australia, Ireland, or India.

 Shoshanna Jordan Shoshanna Jordan

Jordan says her photos, taken with her trusty Hasselblad camera, capture the "diversity of belonging". Her works capture the sense of belonging she finds in her very local area - around Carlisle Street in St Kilda. "It's a small area that so many people call home," Jordan said.

 Garden with Ivy, Carmelite Monastery - Katsuya

Soli Deo Gloria – an exhibition of paintings by Katsuya

Join us for drinks and light refreshments with the artist. Please note, only selected works will be available for purchase.
Address by Terence Lane
One night only: 6-8pm Tuesday, 5 October or by appointment 9827 0777.

"The aim and final end of all music should be none other than the glory of God and the refreshment of the soul." - J.S. Bach

Soli Deo Gloria (SDG) is one of the five solas put forward to summarise the basic beliefs of the Reformation. The loose translation from Latin is: to the Glory of God alone - implying that everything one does is for God's glory, rather than self-glorification or pride. Indeed, to signify a deep devotion and desire to serve God through music, the great Baroque composers Johann Sebastian Bach and George Frideric Handel often appended the initials SDG to the end of their scores and manuscripts.

Similarly, Katsuva wishes to relinquish 'ownership' when he paints; to allow God's glory to manifest itself upon the canvas; to seek and experience spirituality through the process of rendering his subject. For he finds his God in the wind and rain, in the way a garden grows (tended or wild) and the butterfly dance that accompanies. He finds his God in a lettuce, a potato, a mushroom or a bunch of grapes upon the small table in his studio, and when he paints his carefully chosen subjects to represent a Holy Figure or Saint.

Meister Echart said; "He who would be serene and pure needs but one thing - detachment", but Katsuya takes this further in his quest to find the ground of being through his art. By way of his devotions and contemplation, by living fully and loving effusively, by disengaging the ego and being who he really is, Katsuya's paintings become an affirmation of life's spiritual dimension.

ARTISTS STATEMENT
I have made art in various media all my life & hold a Dip of Art., and a Grad Dip Fine Art.
I exhibited my art jewellery worldwide, and have pieces in the National Gallery of Victoria. Making art is something I feel compelled to do and I have been showing paintings now for 3 years. My paintings are inspired by the Australian landscape, although they are not site specific. My trees are metaphors for life, death and renewal. The Edge of Illusion series show distant horizons, allowing the imagination freedom to explore and create fresh ideas. These paintings represent a metaphysical journey into the unknown.
