Adrienne Williams is a landscape painter represented by Red Hill Gallery. At the heart of her work is her passion for wild places and the natural beauty of the bush. Her practice involves totally immersing herself in the landscape, in its cycles of changing light, weather and mood, making extended sketching trips into the bush. Back in the studio those photographs, sketches and rock rubbings inspire drawings, oil canvasses and collagraphs.
A chaos of paper and pins and netting is how she hangs material in her studio. From the scribblings, scratchings and photos in the sketching corner through to plein air (outdoor) sketches made on various sites in the region, you can see this process in action.
Adrienne studied painting and graphic design at Queensland College of Art and has held solo and group exhibitions since 1999. In 2013 she was a member of an artists exchange between the Wide Bay region in Queensland, and a gallery in Las Cruces, New Mexico.
Adrienne William’s latest exhibition opened in her new home town of Mt Perry recently. This exhibition of sketches and oil paintings shows some of Adrienne’s work in progress for the joint Childers/Las Cruces USA exhibition in October, and at Red Hill Gallery in Brisbane.
Adrienne is one of 4 local artists chosen for the Wide Bay High Desert project coordination by the Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery, Childers Art Space, and the Unencumbered Gallery in the city of Las Cruces, New Mexico. The artists are currently each producing 4 pieces of work for the exchange as well as daily and weekly blog posts with their 4 New Mexico counterparts. Each artist will display two pieces in New Mexico and two in Childers in the October exhibition.
