Art Gallery Dayboro
“The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.”
“Paradoxically though it may seem, it is none the less true that life imitates art far more than art imitates life.”
“Any form of art is a form of power; it has impact, it can affect change – it can not only move us, it makes us move .”
EACH MONTH THE DAYBORO ART GALLERY SHARES WITH YOU SOME OF THE FINER POINTS OF OUR BRILLIANT ARTIST AND ART ITSELF. LEARN ABOUT THEIR PASSIONS, MOTIVATION AND UNIQUE ASPECTS TO THEIR STYLES AND TECHNIQUS. INDULGE IN OUR ARTS COMMUNITY AND IN DOING SO BECOME PART OF THE FAMILY
Di was a sketcher as a child and maintained a casual interest throughout her life. Work and family came before art. Like many who grow into art when the kids grow up, her interest was reignited when a friend
encouraged her to go to art classes. She is passionate about animals and is an "African tragic". Many of her paintings reflect this. She does not claim any specific medium or style, just a love of painting and learning new things. Her focus of late has been free form clay.
Ian had his first work featured in the High school magazine at age 12, which inspired his lifetime interest in making art as a hobby. His main topic of interest has always been landscape, impressions and representations of historic and present scenes. Recently he has begun painting abstracts, which he believes has loosened his application techniques, increased his appreciation of colour and improved his composition, "making mistakes is no longer a worry since I am more confident about correcting them". Ian views the process of painting nowadays as a state of decision making and correcting, and feels more relaxed and able to produce better results. The more I learn the more I realise how little I know.
Danielle B Latta
Danielle’s artwork crosses 4 genres, but most have a hint of cartoon, deriving from her years drawing for Walt Disney Studios. Firstly there are the whimsical ink works that capture the special moments from everyday life,like a little boy stealing his first kiss, and connections between animals and humans. Then there are hand inked wildlife works and photography. And finally, a digital collage cross between fantasy and photography to create something quite unique, and with a good dose of Aussie humour thrown in.
As the weather cools for winter the Gallery hopes our three featured artists for June will bring a little warmth to your day. Di Joyner, Ian Jones and Danielle Latta present a diversity of interests and backgrounds, drawn together by their commitment to making art. Pop into the Gallery and check it all out :)
