Shani White presents a collection of native birds painted in a realistic or illustrative nature on a bare background drawing attention to the subject itself. Shani’s style of painting is expressive with brush strokes and colour to bring attention to the feathers and character of the subjects.
Each painting contains gold leaf embellished into the background or the plumage of the birds to portray a jewel or prize like finish to each piece.
Local areas such as Crows Nest National Park, Hampton, Cabarlah, Ravensbourne National Park, and the 3 surrounding lakes all inhabit various species of birds. The Atlas of Australian Birds lists over 300 species of birds in the region, almost half of the total for mainland Australia. The intention of Shani’s exhibition is to bring attention to and to engage the viewers in appreciating the natural surroundings of the local area with reference to the abundance of beautiful bird life.
Join us on Sunday 11 June at 11am for an Artist Talk with Shani White to hear about her exhibition Flock Together.
