Artist: Rachel Milne
On exhibit at Goodness Me Organics throughout November.
Painted with generous spirit are a collection of plein air landscape paintings by artist Rachel Milne created while traveling through Europe. A subdued palette describes setting and place with delicate constancy. The timeless response is pleasurable in its spatial movement capturing a slowness and calm, the antithesis of Europe now. A pattern exists in these works emphasising a deliberate presence, a seamless coherence.
The technique of arresting a moment in time is developed with lavish daubs of oil paint defining form without overzealous attention to detail. The response therefore is spontaneous and fresh.
Also on exhibit is a work “Reunion” recently awarded Highly Commended in the Newcastle Emerging Artist Prize. With similar technique youngsters in the foreground are beautifully defined in robust colour offering the lively effervescence of childhood.
Rachel Milne’s collection can be viewed at Goodness Me Organics 617-621 Glebe Rd Adamstown throughout November. Opening Hours are Mon-Fri 9am – 4pm, Sat 9am – 3pm
