Some of our Artists

Barry Kidd

Barry Kidd’s reputation as an artist of note has evolved over the last 30 years. His work in Brisbane is highly regarded, with the Redland Shire purchasing several of his works over a period of time. In 1996 he won the prestigious Yurara Art Award .

Hariata Tangahoe

Since she first exhibited in the early 1980s, Tangahoe has been described as a naive painter, but these days she shrugs her shoulders and says she has never thought of her paintings in such terms.

Tennyson Brown

Art for me is the roar that I am not quite allowed to make. As a rebel or truth seeker it is imperative I have an experience that puts me in the position of giving myself permission to roar. Art is that permission.

Lachlan Kennedy

Born 7th March, 1979 - A Dreamy, Artistic Piscean! Lachlan has lived in Redcliffe all his life. He developed his artistic talent under the tutelage of John Robinson whilst at Southern Cross Catholic College. He does very intricate fine line abstract pen and wash drawings. Decorating faces from the newspaper is another aspect of Lachlan's work adding humorous captions. The masterful use of colour with freely applied bold, vivid paint reflects the early influence of Van Gogh in Lachlan's first oil paintings.

 

On leaving school, Lachlan was introduced to oils by Kim Mancini, his mentor and tutor, whose constant encouragement has challenged Lachlan to greater heights. His early seascapes show the stormy face of the ocean with a very free application of colour but his more recent outback paintings show Lachlan developing new treatments of depicting light, atmosphere, colour and movement. Living in the beachside city of Redcliffe, Lachlan naturally progressed to painting seascapes where his work became lighter and more ethereal - many with a delicate luminosity of light, he refers to this as his Turner style.

 

His parents stories of their bush heritage - hailing from sheep properties between Winton and Richmond in far north Queensland inspired Lachlan to produce his outback series. Lachlan has a quirky sense of humor and a unique vision of the world. He loves music. In 2007 Lachaln held his first solo exhibition at the Graydon Gallery at New Farm, selling 60% of his work. A fantastic outcome for the talented young artist.

 

This young man's passion for art has created for himself a great art future.
