Jo Fernandez – Time to Reflect

The Corner Store Gallery, Orange 382 Summer Street, Orange, NSW, Australia

Time to Reflect is the latest series of paintings by Jo Fernandez.  The works feature water as a prompt for personal reflection.  The central subject is the reflection of land and sky, and although inspired by specific locations, it could be anywhere, as the artist works from intuition as well as observation.

Karlie Simring – Unseen

The Corner Store Gallery, Orange 382 Summer Street, Orange, NSW, Australia

Karlie has explored various creative mediums, including watercolour, ceramics, basketry & weaving. Now an emerging artist, she creates contemporary textiles, focusing on surface embroidery. Art and design are Karlie’s guiding passions, with the world of textiles continually inspiring her process. Drawing from her experience in fashion, she infuses her work with a considered sense of colour, form and detail. Karlie’s process is intuitive, as she explores and observes her surroundings. Her art is an interplay of line, texture and tone, creating stories with a deep appreciation for materiality and tactility. Mark making with thread, brings the viewer into her inner world.
