Artist of the month
Tricycle Cafe and Bar supports our local artists. Each month we feature a new artist by displaying their work on our walls. We celebrate the artist and their work at the beginning of the month by gathering for drinks and nibbles on a Friday afternoon, timed perfectly to finish when Rektango starts in the courtyard behind us so you can continue the celebrations there. Contact us to get involved.
Wendy is inspired by the natural landscape, focusing on the shapes, textures, design, colour and patterns. She likes to produce images that reflect her reactions and feelings from subjects that appeal to her.
As a keen bush walker, Christine immerses herself in Tasmanian's wilderness and the love she has for our natural surroundings is reflected in her work.
Complex and multilayered pieces on
cradled boards express the emergence of
Gaye’s art into full abstraction. The past
year has seen a major transformation in
her work from realistic traditional oil and
watercolour landscapes and seascapes to
completely abstract images with multiple
layers of texture using oil and wax.
Experimenting and playing with various
approaches and media has led to her current focus on abstract. Gaye has a love of colour and texture and the magic of layering which is becoming more evident in her work. Her work has entered a new and exciting phase. As well as oil paint, cold wax, oil pastels, pigments, monotype printing and collage are being used to intuitively explore texture, shape, colour, form and gestural marks to create complex images..
