Kerry Nobbs exhibition at JahRoc Galleries 7th September
Stunning, better than real life, sea and landscape paintings by established artist Kerry Nobbs
“Dunes and Shorelines” exhibition showing at JahRoc Galleries, Margaret River, Western Australia
7th September till 23rd September
Born in Brisbane in 1952, Kerry grew up in the Tweed Gold Coast regions. He is a self taught artist who painted many regional murals in the early years. Kerry has been painting professionally since 1984, using oils to capture the Australian landscape. He prefers to paint rugged mountain ranges and remote coastlines across our wonderful continent. Light and atmosphere are an important feature in his works. Kerry has won many awards and his paintings feature in collections worldwide.
“I fell in love with the pristine coastlines of Western Australia on my first visit in the year 2000 and have returned every year since in search of new subjects, especially in the South West. By combining my love of light and atmosphere with the secluded beaches, it has inspired me to produce this current collection of paintings. This year my paintings represent the inspiration of the local coastal areas between Rottnest Island and Albany, with a large collection focused on the magnificent Margaret River. I have created many of them with more of a panorama vision, moving away from the more traditional landscape shapes. The movement and reflections in the water and the light and shadows of the sand have laid down the basic fundamentals to each painting. I enjoy the ever changing landscape and find new paintings, with every visit. This is my second feature show with JahRoc Gallery and I hope the viewers can see and feel what I have brought to the canvas”
