THE ROAD LESS TRAVELLED Ipswich Art Exhibition 2019 Proudly presented by CPL’S Springfield, Leichardt & Booval Services

Arts, craft, jewellery making, digital design, music and so much more! At CPL we provide disability services and support to help people of all ages to maximise their potential.

The Road Less Travelled exhibition is a celebration of choice, passion, life, and all the hard work and time our clients have poured into achieving their creative and artistic goals.

Art captures ideas not easily expressed in words, it is a powerful medium for people with disability. It can evoke feelings we didn’t even know were there within.

Through art you can act independently, free yourself from the conformity of others, make your own choice & take the road less travelled…

NUDGEE BEACH

By Jasmine Ludlow, Sue McGreevy and Jack Horne

  • Medium: Acrylic paint on canvas
  • Artwork size: 45cm x 60cm
  • Price: $50

A collaborative work, each artist agreed a big scene was required to set off the bold background colours on the canvas.

The NUDGEE BEACH scenery was applied through a splatter effect, with contrasting colours used to represent beach grasses and flowers.

VIEW FROM ABOVE

By Luke Gill, Jess Geraghty and Jared McLaughlin

  • Medium: Acrylic paint on canvas
  • Artwork Size: 76cm x 61cm
  • Price: $60

This work is derived from a tactile painting technique that involved large quantities of paint being applied to the canvas, which was then covered with glad wrap.

The resulting effect is VIEW FROM ABOVE - a spectacular blend of colours and texture.

I WANDER THROUGH THE WOODS

By Sue McGreevy

  • Medium: Acrylic paint on canvas
  • Artwork Size: 40cm x40cm
  • Price: $75

For this work, the artist was guided by the great Bob Ross as she sought to experiment with painting techniques.

Utilising different sponges, brushes and even paper towel to provide texture and depth, Sue has created a beautiful and haunting image in I WANDER THROUGH THE WOODS.

SCOTTISH HIGHLANDS

By Sue McGreevy

  • Medium: Acrylic paint on canvas
  • Artwork Size: 50cm x 40cm
  • Price: $45

An exploration of her Scottish heritage, the artist has employed similar techniques to those in NUDGEE BEACH to recreate the look of heather and wildflowers.

To produce SCOTTISH HIGHLANDS Sue applied paint in splattered patterns, then let the paint run to represent the brightly coloured stems and blooms that give the painting its vibrancy.

INTO THE GROOVE

By Clay Lofts, Jasmine Ludlow, Jack Horne and Sue McGreevy

  • Medium: Acrylic pour
  • Artwork Size: 60cm x 45cm
  • Price: $50

This beautiful collaboration recalls the colours and patterns of the psychedelic 70s. The colours were chosen and mixed by the artists, before being poured onto the canvas. To produce the wave-like texture, the canvas is then moved about to spread the paint.

Like staring into a lava lamp, INTO THE GROOVE is a playful and funky expression of the artists who created it.

EWE

By Peter Swan and Darrin Simpson

  • Medium: Acrylic paint on canvas
  • Artwork Size: 60cm x 90cm
  • Price: $85

Inspired by an old art book, the artists decided to reproduce this smooth painting technique. Peter's love of animals was the guide for the subject matter, choosing to create a bold image of a ewe.

The canvas was masked off to give a guide and attain the smooth finish shown in EWE.

PEACOCK COLOURS

By Sue McGreevy

  • Medium: Acrylic Pour (framed prints)
  • Artwork Size: 50cm x 40cm
  • Price: Single print $75, Pair $135

These vibrant prints were produced from close up photography of a previous acrylic pour painting, which the artist created a couple of years ago.

The acrylic pour technique was used to achieve a beautiful melding of colours, bold enough to earn the work its name; PEACOCK COLOURS.

NIGHT BLOOMS

By Clay Lofts, Ethan Knight and Deb Wheeler

  • Medium: Acrylic paint on canvas
  • Artwork Size: 40cm x 50cm
  • Price: $50

To produce this spectacular work, the artists chose to paint the background black, to provide a base for the boldness and warmth of the colourful blooms layered on top.

The effect of the flowers in NIGHT BLOOMS was created using a balloon, gently pushed onto the paint and pressed in a circular motion to turn it into these beautiful and unique blooms.

NIGHT AND DAY

By Darrin Simpson, Jasmine Ludlow and Luke Gill

  • Medium: Acrylic
  • Artwork Size: 45cm x 60cm
  • Price: $55

Using the same process and painting technique as NIGHT BLOOMS, the artists used balloons to manipulate the paint on the canvas into beautiful patterns.

The contrasting background of NIGHT AND DAY - a diagonal split of black and white - give this work its name, as well as its fantastic gradient of shades, texture and colour.

HAWAIIAN GARDEN COLLECTION (Piece I & II)

By Mark Noffke and Peter Shields

  • Medium: Acrylic paint on canvas
  • Artwork Size: 30cm x 61cm
  • Price: Single canvas $45, Pair $75

The artists collaborated to create HAWAIIAN GARDEN COLLECTION (Piece I & II), available as a set or individually. A hand -over-hand technique was applied to create the bloom effect in the paint.

GRANITE

By Mark Noffke and Peter Shields

  • Medium: Acrylic Pour
  • Artwork Size: 60cm x 45cm
  • Price: $50

Working in partnership, Peter selected the colours in GRANITE, while Mark created the linear pattern as he poured the paint onto the canvas.

The effect is a stunning work that echos the colours of the earth and the beauty of nature.

DISTANT NEBULA

By Darrin Simpson

  • Medium: Acrylic paint on canvas
  • Artwork Size: 75cm x 100cm
  • Price: $100
