ARTIST Nina Machielse Hunt is set to hold her first solo exhibition at Jayes Gallery in Molong and she admits she is a little excited.
Mrs Machielse Hunt has been involved in art for many years as a visual art teacher, a curator and art exhibition co-ordinator and is finally set to host her first solo exhibition.
“It’s about time, I’ve been working on this a long time,” she said.
“It’s been hard but it’s been good too.”
Her exhibition Seed and Drift depicts her life over the last three years in vivid colours of landscapes, the sea and lakes.
“The last three years I’ve been away in South Australia and I’ve recently become a mum and finished work for a time,” she said.
“I’ve been living in various extreme landscapes that I wasn’t familiar with.”
The collection of oil paintings, along with crayon and acrylic works, depict this journey she has taken.
“We’ve had a lot of water in our lives the last three years, the theme is a symbol of water,” she said.
“It’s a symbol of change and mood.”
She said her artworks in Seed and Drift depicted how she responded to her immediate environment.
“Drifting and going with the flow and the idea of ever changing and being able to adapt to it,” she said.
“It’s been a real journey focusing on my work and working towards the exhibition.”
Artist Ada Clark will officially open Seed and Drift on Friday at 6pm at Jayes Gallery in Molong.
All are welcome to attend the official opening or visit the exhibition which will run until Sunday, April 28.
