An exciting mix of artworks, consisting of oil paintings and photography by Sydney based Artists; Christina Brunton, Debra Phillis and Ilona Abou-Zolof. These 3 talented artists are members of the ‘Meraki Artists’ which is a group dedicated to collaboratively working together to produce excellent artworks.
”Meraki” is a Greek word which means “to do something with soul, creativity or love; when you leave a piece of yourself in your work”. This is the approach of the artists and the result they endeavour to produce in their works. It gives each of them a challenging personal benchmark by which to assess the quality and success of their art.
Meet the artists at the official opening on Sunday, 15th May from 2 to 5pm.
Opening times from 1pm to 6pm each day on the 13th, 14th, 15th and the 20th, 21st, 22nd, May, 2022.
Christina is an artist with a background in oil painting who took up photography to capture images as a reference for her paintings. It was only when Christina learnt to do digital artistry where everything fell into place perfectly and she was able to merge her two passions of painting and photography.
Creating art is a way of life that sings to her and she hopes it touches the viewer’s emotional strings, in their heart and soul. Christina’s art has been published regularly in a variety of international magazines and won distinctions in international competitions.
The work of Debra has a strong investigative basis. Recurrent themes include social relationships, inner life, and perceptual representations of the everyday.
Debra continues to develop an art practise through regular portfolio development and group work with other artists. Recent group exhibitions Head On Festival 2019 and 2018.
Ilona sees the beauty around her through photography. She thinks of herself as an image-maker rather than an image taker and a digital artist and uses digital tools to convert her photos into digital artworks and paintings.
It is amazing what we can produce in the digital age and how much fun it is. Ilona’s art has been published regularly in a variety of international magazines and won distinctions in international competitions.
