Viewing Until: Sunday 28th May 2017 4:00pm

WORKS ON PAPER: FLORA, FAUNA & STILL LIFE
GAIK OEI AND JANET DORMER MARLOW
An exhibition of recent works by Gaik Oei and Janet Dormer Marlow

GAIK OEI is an emerging artist who started her journey learning botanical art but has since moved on to painting different subjects, including still life and portraits of pet animals. She enjoys working with different mediums, liking the fluidity of watercolour as well as the ability of pencil, ink, graphite or charcoal to achieve the detailed realism of some works. Gaik was a finalist in the 2017 Kenneth Jack Memorial Drawing Award Exhibition and received a commendation in the AGRA 2016 Summer Seasonal Exhibition. 

JANET DORMER MARLOW began learning botanical art when she retired from her digital day job, and has been exploring drawing ever since. Her lifelong fascination with flora, object d’art and shades of colour is reflected in her current work. This ‘wallpaper’ series was inspired by the diversity of natural variation in colour and shape of leaves affected by chance and season. Closely observed backgrounds interact with objects off the shelf, reversing the traditional emphasis in still-life.

You are invited to meet the artists on Saturday 6 May, 2-3pm in the Members Room Gallery of The Victorian Artists Society.

Exhibition hours: Tuesday 2 May to Sunday 28 May 2017
10am – 4pm weekdays, 1pm – 4pm weekends.
