Coolum Artist Uncovers the Naked Truth
A Coolum artist with an eye for figures - the undressed human variety - is exhibiting her latest works of art in the "Ladies of the Gallery" show at the Twin Waters Gallery, which is open for viewing from 10 August.
Pauline Adair, who has exhibited and sold her nude paintings throughout Australia as well as overseas, has won many awards and recognition for her work.
Described as "more evocative than provocative", Pauline's nudes can be in oil, acrylic, charcoal, pastel or watercolour. Many are executed in a more classical style, making very effective use of light and colour.
"I strive to capture the feeling that the subject is totally alone with her own thoughts; completely satisfied with her own company," Pauline says. "The viewer (of one of my paintings) is taken to a place where they couldn't normally go - to share a very intimate moment in someone's private life".
Pauline moved to the Sunshine Coast in 1998 from Brisbane - she was previously in Sydney for 20 years working in advertising - and now lives on the Coast, where she has her studio in her home with husband Dave Edwards and her pet cat.
The Twin Waters show will feature 10 of Pauline's works, including one of the largest she has ever produced entitled "Simone". For more about Pauline Adair and to see more of her nudes go to www.paulineadair.com
Other included in the "Ladies of the Gallery" exhibition are Olga Garner, with realism and contemporary works in oil and Jenni Kelly, whose watercolours and acrylics cover contemporary flora and fauna.
