Avylon is an artist based in the Barossa South Australia. She studied Visual Arts at the University of South Australia, with a focus on jewellery design and printmaking, and later went on to complete a Bachelor of Education.
Avylon's passion for art extends beyond my own practice, and she is committed to sharing the joy of creativity with young people.
Avylon has been involved in multiple group and solo exhibitions, including the South Australian Living Artists (SALA) Festival, and the Barossa Vintage Festival Art Prize.
Stuart Hoerisch is an Australian artist living in the Barossa. His abstract work has collectors interstate and internationally.
Alan is a multidisplinary artist working as a painter, as a sculptor and in dance theatre.
In a sense, all of his work is autobiographical. For Alan, art doesn’t exist in a vacuum and while instinct will always play a part there is always a beginning point based upon an exploration of an idea.
Nicole is an abstract artist who paints intuitively, drawing from her formal university studies in design where she gained a sound understanding of colour, balance and form.
Nicole’s artworks are influenced by nature and emotion and are a balance of contrasting elements - both delicate and bold. Her aesthetic is underpinned by the richness of authentic layers, combined with the playfulness of line.
Nicole has recently returned to the Barossa area after living in Melbourne for the last ten years.
After completing a BA of Visual Arts in 2004, Vanessa's work has explored the textural layers of self, family and society through abstraction and expressionism of organic, geometric and figurative forms.
Vanessa has exhibited in various group and solo exhibitions with success in the Adelaide Fringe and SALE Festivals.
Very much a figurative artist, Renee’s works have been described as emotive. Renee’s daughters are her muse and create a common thread throughout her work, however, the often solitary figure is not a replication of her daughters but a vehicle which communicates numerous concepts including inner child, contemplation, society, belonging, isolation and stillness. Commencing each painting, Renee doesn’t have a specific agenda but rather finds they develop and mould to feelings and emotions surrounding her at the time. Each artwork urges the viewer to recognise, acknowledge and feel their own emotions in viewing her work.
Kirsty works in acrylic, encaustic and mixed media. Her new works express a certain bright freedom of the Barossa landscape and are an expression of life's intimate integrity.
Kirsty describes her process as a meditative practice. This continues long after the painting is complete in a renewed awareness of each moment through colour, light and shape.
Kirsty believes creating work from this place of integrity is not only nourishing for the artist, but also nourishing to the world around us.
Julie Winn creates beautiful handmade porcelain "blooms" which are high fired sculptures sometimes with a mere gentle dew of clear glaze.
Julie is inspired by the 17thcentury Meissen works which are exemplary expressions of European porcelain. Julie loves the colours, glazes and forms as well as the impressive artisanship of the makers.
Many look at funciton when discussing ceramics. These works are about the function of beauty captured in porcelain. They reflect nature, human skill, and the value given to a perfect resonance of nature when a bloom is at its best.
Jule hand forms sprays of complex plant inspired structures using white and black clay, in arrangements that overflow vessels reminiscent of grand Victorian arrangements.
We are delighted to have a series of Roland Weight small works at the gallery. Roland recently won the Vintage Festival Art Prize. Roland's richly textured streetscapes have been a favourite of visitors to Wonderground and his work at the Barossa Regional gallery has been rightly acknowledge and is worth seeking out; its texture and depth entice the viewer into its luscious streetscape.
Roland’s art practice is diverse and includes sculpture, realist and abstract painting, drawing, collage, community art, public sculptures and teaching.
