Yvonne Langshaw FRAS
A love of art has been the impetus to pursue the vocation of painting.
I work in acrylic, oil, gouache, watercolour and mixed media. Botanical and ecological studies have led to a profound love of the world of nature in all its forms, and my travels in many parts of Australia and overseas give me the pleasure of working in the field.
Colour, shape and pattern are some of the elements of painting that concern me. From my beginnings as a landscape painter, I have become drawn to still life and interiors, sometimes with figures, subjects that are an excuse for colour. Often reality is subjugated to capturing the spirit of the picture with loose and free methods of working towards a more abstract result. My works seek to convey my own experiences and vision using the language of paint and materials - a journey into both mind and place.
