About Kristine Ballard:

Kristine Ballard’s work is driven by colour. Selective colour palettes and disintegrated shapes define the unique style she calls ‘Fragmatism’ where images float, dissolve and fragment across the canvas, and beauty is often camouflaged. Deconstructed shape and reconstructed colour is always the focus of her work.

Specialising in still life and landscape paintings, Ballard works at creating the atmospheric colour harmonies inspired by real life experiences.

She has exhibited both nationally and internationally and has completed art residencies at the world reknowned Art Students League of New York and also in Venice. In Australia, at Monsalvat and at the Mornington’s historic Police Point Residency.

Kristine’s artwork has also been licensed for fabric collections art cards. She is also an experienced art facilitator, having run an Art School for twelve years and been the Arts presenter of EdTV Australia.

She creates and directs many art functions, workshops, art mentoring programs and art retreats. She specialises in demystifying the art process and helping students develop their own unique style.

About Mark Wilson:

Mark Wilson is an Australian artist also known as Red or Redherring. He has been known under the name since High School, so when he started painting, it felt natural for him to use it as well — like a red herring, he wants his art to be a distraction.

Redherring’s work takes on today’s life, fusing abstract expressionism, colour and street art stencilling, creating imperfect postmodern pieces that reflect the beauty, chaos and politik of an imperfect modern world.

In 2021, he won the People’s Choice Award in the inaugural National Capital Art Prize and also at our MTAS 2022 Autumn Exhibition won best in show.

About Stephen Travers:
Stephen was initially inspired to pursue art when his daughter’s year 12 major work won a year’s scholarship at the Julian Ashton Art School, an urge that he had until then subdued every day for 25 years.

Upon completion of introductory TAFE Cert IV Fine Arts subjects in drawing and painting in 2006 and 2007 which provided some enforced structure and input, Stephen then went on to pursue the areas which have always captured his imagination – the light, colour, shape and texture of the Australian natural environment. In 2015 he took the step of leaving regular employment to work full-time at his art.
Stephen’s paintings often include warm and inviting depictions of Waratahs and Gymea Lillies as well as other native Australian flora.

MTAS Monthly Demonstration Meeting
Carol Gill – 8th February 2022
“Tone & Texture”

Reminding all that for our first Meeting of the year we are looking forward to welcoming Carol Gill demonstrating ‘Tone & Texture’ on Tuesday, 8th February, 7:30pm at the Stan Stevens Studio, Deerubbin Centre, George St, Windsor.

Please register your attendance by email to info@mtas.com.au.

Both members and non members are welcome to join our meetings to view an inspirational artist at work each month, as well as the opportunity to enjoy networking with like-minded art enthusiasts.

About Carol Gill:

Carol began her art career as a Graphic Designer spending her early years in advertising. Developing her art practise in this era meant the icons of the 70s-80s like Brett Whitely, Ken Done and Jenny Kee also heavily influenced her art.

In later years she rediscovered her art through further study and workshops where she was introduced to mixed media and collage by Judith White.

Carol uses a wide range of traditional Korean mulberry papers or “hanji”, tissue papers, water colours and gouache and loves the way they respond and react with one another.

She’s captivated by the textures and organic materials of the hanji papers and their relationship to the natural landscape from which they have been sourced. She enjoys bringing the beautifully delicate yet strong qualities of hanji to a very contemporary Australian theme.
