KERRY-ANNE BLANKET

KAB Gallery, Terrigal

Looking at the artwork I am first drawn to its lineal patterns – the likeness to everyday items and daily sights such as crinkled aluminium foil, wrinkled surfaces, cracked footpaths, dry tree bark and even marble. This familiarity brings comfort but the bold colour oozes a unique energy. The patterns appear organic and intuitively created, while the colours bold and draw you in. This unique abstract artwork would work very well for a youthful or modern interior.

ALEX THOM

Thomgallery, Byron Bay

The application of colour is bold and seductive in this artwork by Ingrid Russell, while the overall use of space draws the viewer outside the confines of the frame. Striking for both its composition and palette, the artist exhibits inventiveness and originality. This work would position well in a minimal space with natural tones while a portrait hang may aid in its versatility. As it is a work on paper, framing it behind glass would be recommended and a black frame would further enhance the composition’s bold qualities.

NADINE WAGNER

Wagner Contemporary, Sydney

Impromptu Coranto is beautifully done. It explores mark making based on personal observations and experiences. Ingrid’s process of layering patterns provides the framework for her to render her vision. Her work appears to express a sense of time and history by the fossil-like lines, while the indigo background gives a sense of tranquillity and gentle movement. This artwork is small and a perfect by-the-cabinet size – it will go anywhere. I see it simply propped up on a sideboard against a wall for a casual display.
