As from today, Krista Stewart’s beautiful painting, ‘Sensual Groove’ will be delighting visitors to this entry foyer in Collins St, Melbourne. Our client likes to rent their artwork so that they can changeover their paintings every three months to keep the entry to their building both interesting and informative for their tenants.

Krista’s artist statement is below.
“Sensual Groove, is a picture based on curves overlapping each other with the hot orange red being the dominant colour. The hot orange red form provides the passion, the underlying colours support the top elongated hot orange red – suggesting red passionate lips , creating added drama. Sculptural forms within this picture are play full and contemporary, which brings about a sensual kinetic energy.”

Artist Mike Reed joins Corporate Art Rentals

Mike’s works employ a graphical and colourful approach, utilising colour enhancing techniques and Fuji Flex paper mounted on a light but strong Dibond aluminium frame.

Mike Reed is extremely well known in Advertising Film Production but now explores opportunities to create even more success in photography and the publishing of unique creative photobooks. Mike’s work is influenced by a phenomena called Pareidolia which is a type of illusion of light, shadow and form representing something that is clear and distinct; usually in clouds but also people have claimed to see Elvis or the Messiah in the discolourations of a burnt slice of toast, or the image of Vladimir Putin in the soapy scum of a shower curtain. Mike’s works employ a graphical and colourful approach, utilising colour enhancing techniques and Fuji Flex paper mounted on a light but strong Dibond aluminium frame. For more information on Mike’s work, please visit his website here.

A premium lounge, dedicated to serving high profile airline customers, is now proudly displaying paintings by artists John Aslanidis, Donald Ramsay and Martin King.

John Aslanidis’s paintings give a visual expression to the physicality of sound and can be both mesmerising and soothing. John’s paintings are collected internationally and he was recently commissioned to paint a 84 sqm wall painting for Longchamp’s Omotesando boutique in Tokyo. A predominant theme in Donald Ramsay’s paintings is his interpretation of the Australian natural wilderness landscape. Donald’s studio is located on Victoria’s Great Ocean Road and many of his paintings are from that area. Martin King is acknowledged widely as one of Australia’s leading printmakers and many of his works on paper trace the movement of rain shadows and the effect of weather patterns across undulating terrain and vast tracts of desert. His work often expresses the fragility of our relationship with nature.

Ian Wells’ exhibition, “The Difficult Third”. Closes 16 Sept ’17.

Corporate Art Rentals’ artist, Ian Wells is exhibiting his work at the Five Walls Projects gallery in Footscray. In Ian Wells’ paintings, allusions to tabs, folds and slots and the deliberate misuse of the symbols of cardboard packaging, tease our sense of recall with recognisable forms.

In Ian Wells’ paintings, allusions to tabs, folds and slots and the deliberate misuse of the symbols of cardboard packaging, tease our sense of recall with recognisable forms.

Ian W exhibition

The resultant paintings contain an array of odd and unlikely shapes. Forms are intersected by creases, cut lines and separate panels, interrupting our attention to the bigger picture. Images appear within the paintings, indirectly referencing little-known and indistinguishable forms that exist in industry and consumable products. In the interstitial passages of painting, the viewer is left to recognise and make sense of elements that skirt the boundary of recollection. The viewer’s perceptual re-ordering and ‘filling in’ of these disregarded and frequently discarded forms is an attempt to make sense in an undetermined environment, neither new nor old; an uncomfortable, difficult third.”

Visit Geoff Harrison’s exhibition at Tacit Contemporary Art in Abbotsford

Visit the Tacit Contemporary Art Gallery between the 23 August to 10 September to see Corporate Art Rental’s artist Geoff Harrison’s exhibition of his beautiful landscapes.

Visit the Tacit Contemporary Art Gallery between the 23 August to 10 September to see Corporate Art Rentals artist Geoff Harrison’s exhibition of beautiful landscapes. Geoff completed his Bachelor Of Arts (Fine Art), at RMIT in Melbourne. He also completed the prestigious Drawing Marathon, run by Graham Nickson at the Adelaide School of Art. Geoff partook in an Associated Diploma in Art and Design, as well as gaining his Associate Diploma in Cartography at RMIT. Painting for Geoff is a journey of self-discovery and he is constantly pushing himself to the limits of his ability to achieve this. He often feels the aim of his paintings is to punch holes in the gallery walls and let the daylight in, or nightlight depending on the work. Geoff’s works are atmospheric, peaceful and draw the viewer into their space.

The Party’s Over by Merryn Trevethan

Merryn Trevethan, a Singapore-resident, Melbourne-native artist is proud to present a body of work that marks a chapter of her practice entitled “The Party’s Over”.

Merryn Trevethan, a Singapore-resident, Melbourne-native artist is proud to present a body of work that marks a chapter of her practice entitled “The Party’s Over”. Merryn’s inspiration stems from her observation of the urban landscape of globalised cities.

The show’s title “The Party’s Over” is a line from Leonard Cohen’s song A Street. Influenced by recent geopolitical changes occurring across the world, Trevethan observes a city that is constantly in flux and is continuously re-inventing itself. While specific buildings are not readily identifiable in the work, Trevethan captures the essence of each city scene with chromatic lines and varied hues. She depicts a landscape without horizon- using colour to collapse the picture plane. Each painting is not a portrait of any specific city but a convergence of urban cues

Exhibition Title: The Party’s Over…
Venue: The Australian High Commission, Singapore
2 AUG – 30 SEP 2016

Her selected engagements in Singapore include being awarded First Prize for the DRIVE – Public Art Open Call for her work “Accelerator City”, where she painted a mural on an outdoor wall at Gillman Barracks. In 2015, Trevethan was commissioned to create artwork for the new Facebook Headquarters at South Beach Tower, Singapore, as part of the Facebook Artist in Residence Program and is currently in the process of expanding this project.
