During March you have the chance to see DAJA which comprises the works of four artists with four different styles at Red Tree Gallery, Jindivick. The four friends are active members of Warragul’s vibrant art community and this is their first joint exhibition. The official opening of the exhibition is on March 3rd.
David, a talented Gippsland native, has been drawing and creating art from a young age. David particularly enjoys “ animae “and his style has developed from black and white sketches into a vibrant world of fantastical people and creatures and landscapes with sci fi and fantasy elements. David uses many mediums in his art but in particular enjoys using graphic markers for their breadth of colour and precision.
Amanda is a local artist and some will remember her stall at the Warragul Art’s Market. Amanda works mainly with acrylics and uses colour and line with precision. Her style is often whimsical and haunting and may leave you wondering “ what are they thinking? “ where are they going?” Amanda works delicately and carefully producing beautiful pieces.
Amanda is a Gippsland native and after finishing university she decided to teach herself to paint and eventually, with her brother David, joined Jo Draisma’s adult art classes where she met Amy and Judy.
Judy a local pharmacist has practiced art in nearly every style for years when time allowed and only since she retired has been able to explore and find her own style. Having the space and time in the adult art classes run by Jo Draisma has contributed to Judy developing her skills. Judy works in several mediums and her art can be very colourful, intricate and fun. There could be strange critters, weird flowers or even realistic works. Judy also produces colourful crochet sculptures which can stand alone or twist together.
Amy is a Warragul resident who works for a Gippsland based digital media company and is fortunate to have space to create both at work and at home. She is actively involved in the local theatre scene and has created sets and props for many companies including STAG, CLOC, WYT, WTC and GT for shows such as Disney’s The Little Mermaid Jr., Wicked, Les Misérables, and Into the Woods.
Amy is a sculptor at heart but enjoys exploring with all art mediums and often combines aspects from multiple mediums into the one piece. Amy finds great inspiration in found and broken objects and loves to reimagine, reuse, recycle and give new life to such things within her art. (She feels it allows her to create pieces on the quirkier, sometimes fantastical, darker side of the spectrum. Within this exhibition Amy offers a selection of both 2D and 3D pieces which she has collated especially for Red Tree Gallery.
