The Geelong-Viqueque Friendship Schools committee is delighted to introduce our ‘Art for Timor’ judge Alison White. Alison has kindly volunteered her time to judge GVFS’s ‘Art for Timor’ art show. For each artist category, Alison will be making her assessments on the following criteria.
A) Interpretation of the Theme
C) Technical Skill (in relation to artist’s style type, skill level and or art medium)
The recipients of the Judges Choice Award will be announced at the ‘Art for Timor’ Opening Night. The Opening Night is scheduled to commence at 6:00 for a 6:15 start on Monday the 2nd of November.
Geelong based artist Alison White creates original, contemporary, abstract expressionist paintings inspired by nature, colour and flow. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Ballarat in 2003. While her degree allowed her to build a Graphic Design career that has seen her travel to all corners of the world, it’s the return to the paintbrush that is now providing the utmost satisfaction of just being in the moment and simply creating.
The rich vibrancy and organic lines of her acrylic and mixed media works are brought to life on canvas with often unexpected elements including dried pieces of acrylic paint for texture, red wine, tea, coffee, and she has also mixed her own pigments from ochre and flowers that have been found in the bush.
The GVFS committee extend their sincere thanks to Alison for her support of the GVFS ‘Art for Timor’ art show. The committee invite the GVFS community to visit Alison’s social media handles and website.
