Three Solo Exhibitions – 19 Karen
19 Karen Gallery is proud to present an event that brings together three unique artists from around the globe in one great space – all in their debut shows with 19 Karen, and two with their debut shows in Australia. Each artist has a signature style and interesting take on portraying the human form. The shows – [S T A M P] from Ariel Katzir, For Your Viewing Pleasure from Jason Bryant and Inner Beauty from Monique Van Steen. From Perth, the U.S. and Spain respectively, each artist brings an air of international flavour to their creations.
Ariel Katzir is a multi-talented young creative from Perth causing quite a stir in the art world. Graduating from the Central Institute of Technology with a Diploma in Fashion and Textiles, this exciting artist has chosen to put paint to canvas. Fascinated with uniform lines, geometry and the human form, she breathes life into her imagination and onto her canvas to create exquisite portraits. She will definitely be leaving a [S T A M P] on 19 Karen with this beautiful new body of 15 works.
Jason Bryant is bringing his new series of hyper realistic paintings in his debut Australian solo show, Jason is bringing back romance and glamour as he celebrates Hollywood icons of a time long past. Through vibrant colours and classic black and white imagery, we are transported from the modern day gallery to a forgotten world of elegance and glamour as he presents his beautiful works.
Using a dripping technique that allows her to create the loose, fluid lines so signature to her art, Monique Van Steen has created a new series of ‘beauties’ for her debut solo show in Australia with 19 Karen, exploring the concept of inner awareness and inner beauty in a society that thrives upon self-deception and superficial values.
The opening night the triple-header exhibition takes place on Saturday October 8 from 6:00–8:00 pm and is a great chance to mix and mingle with local creatives who love good art. The exhibition runs until November 19th.
