A few years ago Ria Brenchley moved from outer Melbourne to Flinders on the Mornington Peninsula, found her creative home, and now paints full time.
This has resulted in her latest series ‘Peninsula Roaming’, which celebrates a love of the Peninsula and its rugged coastlines, golden pastures, sunny beaches and hay bale harvests. Ria’s technique exploits the palette knife and results in highly textural paintings full of colour and movement.
“I have always drawn and painted.
At a very young age I entered a colouring competition for a newspaper. It was a simple garden scene, however I extended the drawing to include a detailed landscape with large trees and complex plants. It was ‘out of the box’, I won and was very proud. I had found what I loved to do at an early age yet it took me many years to come back to it in the form of painting. Those years were filled by a busy career, being a mum and a significant family health issue. It is comforting that many years later, now in my 50’s, I am able to immerse myself painting these landscapes that were quietly waiting for my return,” says Ria.
Ria Brenchley celebrates the space and forms of the landscapes, and human interaction within the landscape from farming to leisure. She also celebrates summer in the region through her paintings. With plans to open a new studio from her home in Flinders late 2016, we can look forward to this talented artist to be added to the cultural activities of the area.
The exhibition will open with wine and cheese at Phaedrus Estate 220 Mornington-Tyabb Road, Moorooduc on Saturday April 9, 3pm to 5pm. It will continue weekends only, 11am to 5pm, until May 22. All welcome.
