Award-winning NSW artist Mark Waller, brings his love of the spectacular Western Australian coastline to Kidogo Arthouse, with an exhibition of new works.

Renowned for his ability to capture ocean and coastal scenes, “Time and Space” is a celebration of the sublime discoveries Mark has made during his trips to Western Australia. His paintings depict selective glimpses and impressions of the Western Australian coastline we know and love from down South to the bays of Rottnest, viewed through Mark’s philosophical and artistic aesthetic.

Mark’s work has been described as “meditation for your walls”, and that he uses “sunlight as a colour on his palette”. His work is a kaleidoscopic expression of his eye for nuance and colour. His paintings are interwoven with his philosophy on life; that is, that there is power in just “being”. And that simple moments can transform lives.

Mark visited Perth in March 2015 and again in September 2015, and toured around the South West and Rottnest Island, and has created over a dozen paintings that feature Caves Beach, Yallingup, Bunker Bay and more.

His paintings are so life-like that you feel like you can run down the sand and jump into the water. This exhibition is a fantastic opportunity for aficionados of Realist Seascapes to make an extremely good investment or for anyone who would love a luminous, light-filled scene of the spectacular WA coastline on their wall to lose themselves in. Mark’s work is well-priced for both type of art-lover.

On his experience of painting the unique Western Australian seaside landscape Mark said, “Really, for me, WA is all about the light, and the space. Because there’s so much light bouncing around, everything looks saturated and hyper-realistic. And because there’s so much space, it allows the light to travel without being diminished. The light is different here.

“Having said that though, I really do love the colour in the plants right up against the beach. There’s all these lovely little plants, so you can put flashes of all these gorgeous purples and oranges right in the sand, right next to that luminous turquoise water”.

Mark will be conducting free painting demonstrations during the exhibition from Friday 13 May to Sunday 15 May from 10 am to 1pm at Kidogo Arthouse. This is a rare opportunity to learn about the techniques he uses in the creation of his stunning coastal landscapes.
