Torquay artist Andrea Shaw is set to showcase her work at Boom Gallery in Geelong, with her ‘The In-Between’ exhibition beginning on Thursday January 27 and running until Sunday February 20.

Having studies Landscape Architecture and Textile Design, Ms Shaw is a paint and textile artist with a strong focus on highlighting the relationships between colour, pattern, space and landscape.

“These works aim to capture some of what I perceive to exist within the landscape beyond my senses,” she says.

“I wanted to show the link between my more representational landscape works and the move to abstraction in the one body of work – how one work informs the next, focusing on those spaces between the recognisable aspects to begin the process.”

Andrea’s works are dynamic, abstracted snapshots responding to the ever-changing colours and forms within the landscape.

Having run five successful solo shows in both Geelong and Melbourne, as well as being curated into multiple groups shows around the country, she is also renowned for her window installations and murals for retail venues and galleries.

The other exhibition is ‘In The Studio’, brought to Boom Gallery by Amber Stokie, an Adelaide-based artist known for her figurative works on paper and canvas, who often shifts between drawing and painting to describe what’s going on in her world and society.

Boom Gallery will be hosting an event sponsored by 6Ft6 Wines, with both Andrea Shaw and Amber Stokie on Saturday January 29, from 1pm – 3pm, at 11 Rutland Street, Newtown.
