Amanda Ruck, Cloud Sailing, 2015. Acrylic on wood, 60 x 60cm.

This painting brings back strong memories of hanging over the pulpit on a ship as we are nearing land in the early morning, straining my eyes for lobster pot floats. “Is that the coast ahead?” Eternally intriguing yet restful, I see it in a lounge or dining room decorated in pale colours.

KERRY-ANNE BLANKET

KAB Gallery, Terrigal

Cloudscapes typically evoke feelings of calm in viewers with a sense of free movement. While the majority of this artwork is focused on cloud formations, it’s the horizon line that conveys the story of this piece to me. The grey misty horizon view seems somewhat European and reminds me of the English coast. Amanda Ruck’s painting style is beautifully delicate, and her media on board combined with the creamy clouds provide an almost antique charm. This artwork is perfect for the contemporary collector who has a love for the old world.

GIOVANNA FRAGOMELI

Indico Galleries, Sydney

The creamy colour palette – combined with the material of wood – helps to convey a dreamy atmosphere in this piece. This artwork exudes a sense of calm upon the viewer and, with the hint of the horizon, it leads the eye above, into the clouds and to a realm of tranquility.
