Kristy Osseweyer and Ericka Baker came together as artists in residence at Patonga Beach Hotel for one week in September 2017. While painting for the weekend art fair it became apparent to Kristy and Ericka that they both shared a passion for the environment, figures and the Australian landscape.
From the juxtaposition of Kristy’s use of turquoise blue hues and clever abstract style set against the high contrast, Impressionistic style and explosive use of colour in Ericka’s acrylic paintings at the fair, the idea of a possible collaborative venture was born.
Kristy Osseweyer’s impasto pallet knife technique exemplifies her passionate feelings using the textural manipulation of oil paint on canvas to bring her landscapes to life.
Ericka Baker's paintings are inspired by the raw, powerful, unique Western Australian landscape and in particular the intense light, movement and high contrasts in colour.
