November's Vianta Exhibition Jim Cox's Colour-Faunia

What a treat! Spring is well and truly here and all of nature is celebrating, VIANTA Arts is celebrating too with Jim Cox’s exhibition Colour-Faunia!!!

The title of Jim Cox’s exhibition ‘Colour-Faunia’ opening on the 6th of November at VIANTA Arts, is quite possibly the understatement of the year! Jim has been roaming around his forest neighbourhood, carrying with him his artist’s eye, bringing back images of the common and the ordinary in our lives, which he has represented as we’ve never seen them before. The Bush Turkey – pilloried for destroying vegetable gardens, holds himself erect and proud, knowing full well what a beautiful and extraordinarily colourful animal he really is; a scattering of dead leaves on the ground glow with the remnants of their past lives and the warmth of transitioning into their next life; the shy King Parrot stops for a brief moment to open his wings and  expose his glowing red chest before flitting back into the forest again; the sun shining through a ceiling of densely layered foliage generates a patterned tonal range of extraordinary depth;  even the Raven’s sleek plumage glints with an insularity matched only by the insolence that slips through the guard of his wary eye!

Jim has worked in the arts for his entire life – for 14 years as a graphic designer (at a time when to be successful in that career needed more than just software competency!) and for 24 years as a tertiary level Fine Art Lecturer at Brisbane and Townsville TAFEs and at the Queensland College of the Arts. Recently Jim has found himself busier than ever as he visually documents the important things in his life, reflecting his wide range of interests, values, and his sense of humour. Above all he values most – good design, draftsmanship and technical ability.

Jim’s exhibition ‘Colour-Faunia’ will hang at VIANTA Arts, 70 Simpson Street Beerwah, from the 1st of November to the 29th of November and will open at 6:00pm on the 6th of November. Light refreshments will be served at the opening, and an a la carte menu will be available from 7:00pm, after the opening – call Steve on 0412 312 399 for table bookings.
