Yvonne Fenech | Jeske
Yvonne Fenech | Shadows
20 September - 15 October 2017
Yvonne Fenech grew up in seaside Maroubra in the 1960s, following the surf trail north in the 80s, to find her creative haven in Byron Bay. She graduated in drawing, painting, fine arts and relief printmaking (Lismore).
Shadows presents a collection of works motivated by the qualities of a character, often hidden beyond physical appearance. Shadows are used as a metaphor to illustrate the individual.
Yvonne explores various techniques, developing strong, high contrast shadows that become the focus of each image. Whilst these paintings reference personal experiences and the histories of those around her, these images also allow the audience their own interpretations.
Yvonne captures beauty and energy within her immediate environment. Forms are structured and the work is textured and rich. From her paintbrush flows an energy that captures her enthusiasm for dramatic, vibrant human forms in all their beauty, bringing personality to the portrait.
Launch Event: Thursday 21 September | 5.30pm - 7.30pm
