BARBARA BATEMAN

Out From Down Under & Beyond: Fine Art from Australia & New Zealand
May 20 – June 9, 2016
Reception: Thursday, May 26, 2016 6-8 PM

What makes the expressionistic landscapes of Australian painter Barbara Bateman so memorable is the unique way by which she weaves color, shape, and texture into terrains at once familiar and entirely new. Within each image, these elements are seamlessly brought together in a way that promotes a sense of fluidity and lends a deeper meaning to the overall effect.

While Bateman’s work is seated firmly in the Western landscape tradition (alongside such artists as Van Gogh, Cezanne, John Peter Russel, and Matisse), it is also strongly influenced by Aboriginal art, particularly in her use of color, light, and space. Working in the en plein air tradition, Bateman seeks to paint the sensed reality she observes, choosing to capture subjective experiences and nuances of memory and conscious meaning rather than a representational view of the landscape before her. As she explains, “My artwork involves a process of interiorization, of getting into the soul of things to reach their truth…of filtering out the most spectacular of what is visible.”

Barbara Bateman currently maintains a studio near Melbourne and another on the iconic Great Ocean Road near Lorne, where the bush meets the Pacific Ocean.
