Etienne is thrilled to be exhibiting a collection by the French born artist,  Stanilas Piechaczek.
Currently residing in Australia, he creates colourful abstract worlds occupied by objects and characters. His work is created by a complex depth of layers of acrylic and pastel.
Stan continues to experiment with his art from which he draws much pleasure and his style evolves to reflect himself as he is inspired by all that surrounds him, his life and his journey.
Stan has participated on numerous solo exhibitions in Australia and was recently selected as a finalist for the Clayton Utz Art Award.

'Floral Alchemy' - Vicki Kerr

Wednesday, November 16, 2016

My amazing friend Vicki Kerr has spent the last 3 years writing this glorious book, I am so thrilled and proud to have it in my store. Vicki writes of her book... "The focus of this book is to show flowers standing on their own.  It is a combination of elements that I believe compliment flowers, and that I love... diverse paper stocks, fabrics, wallpapers, botanical illustrations, vases and sculptures.  In combining all these aspects I hope we have produced something that is beautiful to look at, to have and to give."

'frida kahlo' - micaela georgiou

   'frida kahlo'

Born in Adelaide to a creative family Micaela began her small business of Mid Century furniture restoration whilst living overseas.  It combined her love of vintage textiles, wallpaper and imagery with the good bones and design of 1950's and 60's retro furniture.
After moving home and starting a family, her creative limits had to be compromised so she created Boneyard Trader and turned her attention to small works of vintage imagery and photography that were hand printed onto timber and ceramic tiles. 
Micaela's current pieces are inspired by iconic imagery of Mexico mixed with vintage roses, art deco and tropical foliage collaged and mounted on plywood to create bohemian wall decor and simple side tables full of vibrant colour and pattern.

SALA - olivia ebert

Monday, August 1, 2016

'sunday monday'

on sunday’s and monday’s i work out, cook a new dinner recipe for the family, and i paint. i am the opposite of how people would typically spend a sunday, and i never dread monday’s. these are my creative days where i can spend my time immersed with paint and colour, exercise my creativity, and articulate abstract thought from my soul and my world into life on canvas.

'sunday monday' is a varied collection of works; i really just paint what’s in my head, often resulting in me either hoping for a spontaneous outcome and loving it, or my painstaking perfectionist mentality will have me agonising for hours until it's exactly how i want it to be.

my life & work-life consists of colour, design and creativity & it is through this that inspires & drives my artwork. i draw inspiration from my travels, the city scape, nature, fashion and textiles, architecture and buildings. my complete fascination and love of colour, textures and design trends constantly inspires me too, as it surrounds us in everyday life.
 
so here it is, my SALA’16 exhibition titled ‘sunday monday’ unveils my most recent works; highly considered, spontaneous & everything in between.. everything that has happened on a sunday and monday.

Art by Marcia - 'Birds, Herds & Curbs'

Monday, July 4, 2016

Canadian born Marcia calls the Adelaide Hills home. Formally trained in fine arts at Skidmore College in New York in the eighties, she found herself distracted over the last 25 years raising two children and following various career paths in advertising, publishing, importing and wine. Recently remarried, Marcia and her husband are rejuvenating “Inverugie Farm” near Mylor, a lifestyle that allows her to focus on her art.

Marcia has an interest in depicting urban and rural landscapes and the characters who inhabit them. Using acrylic paint, she is experimenting with her own personal style and has chosen 'cows' as subjects because she believes they must have an individual character – even though she can’t tell them apart in the paddock. The cows in this series are from the ‘Bean’ herd and have names with Bean in them – Coffee Bean, Jelly Bean, Pinto Bean, Vanilla Bean and Lima.

Marcia’s restless creative spirit keeps her on the move. A recent visit to NYC has resulted in a series of colourful streetscapes. When at home she is captivated by the brilliant colours found in Australian nature.
