Time & Location
About the Event
Glimmer Gallery is proud to present this joint exhibition showcasing original artworks created by Gino Severin and Michelle Arundel. Gallery Hours: Wed-Fri 9am-3pm, Sat 9am-12pm or as published on website.
Gino's exhibition is titled 'the burn' and consists of a series of framed acrylics on canvas.
Michelle's exhibition is titled 'iso-broken' and consists of a four part series of limited edition prints (from acrylic on paper).
From an early age, Gino Severin’s life ambition was to be an artist and painter, finding his talents in illustration and painting. Growing up on a farm in a small regional Victorian town, he found much of his inspiration in mother nature.
Being raised on a farm, there was not a lot of opportunity for him to pursue this artistic path, however he has always kept in touch with this desire to be more creative, whilst working full time.
This is Severin’s second exhibition, and he is primarily self-taught. His work reflects his passion to tell the story of climate change, with his own interpretation on the recent impact to our natural habitat. Calling it “the burn”, the exhibition is a commentary on the changing environment, which ultimately affects each and every one of us.
The exhibition work is a mix of acrylic and oils on canvas. Works are primarily larger pieces ranging from 36 x 18in up to 72 x 36in. All canvases are framed in local Vic-ash hardwood timber, contributing to the unique story being told in the exhibit.
Currently living in Caulfield South, Victoria, Severin is pursuing his life ambition, being a creator and artist. Severin comments, “be bold, take risks and begin the journey to discover your potential…it’s a human right to tell your own story!”
Michelle Arundel exhibited artistic talents early, graduating during the early 90’s in the top one percent for her art in the state of New South Wales.
Over the past 20 years, Arundel travelled across four continents and sought inspiration from her travels. She is inspired by bold colours, strong tones, and different mediums, sometimes bringing all three into her expressions.
During the long Melbourne lockdowns Arundel sought to express her mounting feelings, picked up her brushes and created the iso-broken series. This four-part series represents the confusion, anxiety, despair, and hope experienced by herself and many others throughout that time.
Originals are acrylic on paper, and this work has been made into limited edition prints, mounted behind glass with wooden frames.
Artwork is 295 x 420, and frames are 450 x 625 with bevel edge insert and a hardwood timber frame.
