Artwork by Barbara Gray & Fred Marsh

This exhibition of paintings is inspired by the diversity of mood and light, as we explore the themes of light in the landscape, city & urban areas and the coast. They are informed primarily by plein air studies, urban sketching and travel.

As we journey together we find great diversity in the places we travel to, which reflects in the differing interpretations of our work.

Plein air painting & sketching outdoors plays a big part in our practice. We visit new places to draw, sketch and paint on the spot. Nothing beats painting outdoors where you can feel the sun and wind, and “hear” the landscape, it always turns out to be a very satisfying day at the “office.”

Having just moved to the south coast we are finding the light and coastal landscape a wonderful inspiration, & some very recent paintings showing this will be included in this exhibition. The exhibition will also feature urban, cityscapes & nocturnal scenes, providing a view of our wide-ranging subject matter.

We mostly work in oils, however, do use watercolours in our plein air work & urban sketching.

We have been shown in the NSW Parliamentary Plein Air Prize & as finalists in many shows in and around Sydney. A few years ago Barbara was a finalist (& sold her work) in the prestigious Mosman Art Prize.

Our work is in private collections in all States of Australia, most states of the US, UK, France, New Zealand, and Singapore. Work is also held in corporate collections in the US and Australia.
