ART IS LIFE,
LIFE IS AN ART
Life is about continually changing perspectives.
Integrating the new with the old.
Challenging what we think and perceive to come to another level of understanding.
FLIGHTS OF IMAGINATION
An exhibition of collectable prints and other works of art by Graham Pippard
Graham Pippard's recent successful Art Exhibition was held at the Centre for Movement Studies, Shenton Park . The newly installed hanging and presentation fixtures enhanced the punch and visual power of the work.
Collectable Prints / paintings /photos /sculpture and other art works were superbly curated by Julie Peck and Sara Elderfield, well known Feldenkrais Practitioners.
The works created great interest among attendees and collectors, which was reflected in continual sales.
The lighting installation throughout the garden created the perfect ambience for discussion and meeting new friends.
JUST ADD WATER
The JUST ADD WATER series of prints document the journey from a 2D photo that was transformed into a 3D cube that was then taken & placed in the HD Reality of Perth's beaches.
This provided a setting for transitioning between the fluidity of water and the solidness of land.
The cube sculpture freezes a moment in time, drawing attention to the preciousness of our environment and the beauty of our coast line.
Water is essential to our life and our environment.
Reflecting on the movement of water takes us into a space of stillness and quietness.
Graham developed these works to facilitate finding this state in ourselves.
FLIGHTS OF IMAGINATION
These works were influenced by Graham’s time in the ancient
city of SHANGRI-LA in CHINA
He was surrounded with works from Tibetan Culture and Art.
Graham received instruction from a painting master, learning
and exploring the philosophy and techniques behind their spiritually based art.
Graham adds another experience to these works by adding theatrical lighting.
The multi changing colours add yet another perspective to the way
we observe and relate to our environment and inner self.
Inspiration was drawn from observing nature. By placing these observations into a ‘new’ context, it helps us to consider the interconnected relationship of ourselves with, and as a part of, nature in a new way.
Graham has literally painted the landscape.
This intimacy with working IN, ON, and UNDER the land scape………
Painting Bridges, Drainage Systems, Prickles in Fields, and Rocks in all types of weather, changes our relationship with the world and how we see, interact and respond to it
Playing with form, line, shape, color, contrast, movement, scale, and the illusion of space Graham has created and given us an insight into how he perceives the ’action’ of thoughts emerging and becoming alive.
Studies of Breughel, Rubens, Leonardo da Vinci give an insight into the development of Graham’s work.
