Well-known local artists Naomi Trotter and Juanita Faint will open their exhibition ‘Different Perspectives’ at 2pm on Saturday 26 August at the Warwick Art Gallery.
The duo will exhibit their recent work at the Warwick Art Gallery on display from Thursday 24 August until Saturday 23 September.
Naomi and Juanita are also mother and daughter, and ’Different Perspectives’ will showcase the similarities and differences in their work.
A variety of media have been used which include oils, acrylics, inks, watercolour and pastels. The paintings cover a wide range of subjects drawn from their imagination as well as the world around them, the imaginative work being what they enjoy the most. Both artists find inspiration in similar subjects, but their approach is very different. Naomi works in layers of broken colour and Juanita works Alla Prima, which is blocks of colour.
This is their first mother and daughter exhibition. Naomi and Juanita don’t paint together but their subject matter is surprisingly similar and their artwork comes from two different and distinctive perspectives.
Asked why they decided to have an exhibition together Juanita laughingly said, “Well I did for her and she (Naomi) said she did for me”.
This colourful exhibition by local artists will delight the viewer and give a unique insight into their art practice.
