ICELANDIA - OPENING NIGHT

Melbourne certainly had it's Icelandia hat on for the opening night at Fenton & Fenton!

We were thrilled to finally open the doors to our valued customers and it was nice to see some new faces amongst the crowd.

Icelandia takes you on a voyage towards the north of the globe, inspired by icy glacial blues, emerald greens and beautiful shades of pinks and purple's that are reminiscent of the wildflowers that grace the region.

Icelandia proved to be a huge success, and a very big thank you to our new and valued customers who braved the cold on this chilly night and also a huge thank you, hugs and kisses to the team at Fenton & Fenton they do such a wonderful job, and for taking us all on a journey to experience Icelandia!

I C E L A N D I A BY MEGAN WESTON

We are proud to introduce Icelandia, the second Megan Weston exhibition to be hosted by fenton & fenton following the great success and sell out show, Altitude.

True to Megan's style, Icelandia features topographical portraits working predominantly with her favoured medium of resin. This time focussing on the far north of the globe as her inspiration and subject. Glacial icy blues, deep emerald greens and colours found in flowers from the wildest of terrains have been masterly combined to create Megan's version of Icelandia.

We take great pleasure in welcoming you to attend the opening night and celebrating with us by sharing a glass of sparkling from our friends at Terindah Estate or a cool beer by Moo Brew.

If you would love to come along then please RSVP to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

The works will be able to be viewed online from 5pm on Wednesday May 20 and available for purchase by phone or in store by 10am Thursday May 21.

We look forward to seeing you at the official opening!

cheers

Fenton & Fenton & Megan Weston

MEGAN WESTON

Megan Weston is a Barwon Heads artist. Renowned for her large aerial abstract works. Megan uses aerial photography as her inspiration.

 

In early art history landscape was considered lower in status than portraiture, which patrons would pay much more for. However, as artists experimented with rules of perspective, use of colour and effective compositions the painting of lanscapes presented very real challenges and the artist's rose to the challenge making it an important genre in it's own right.

 

The view of our world has led many to become obsessed by this destruction and in doing so has lost sight of the beauty that this world still offers. I am a young mother. My view is one of positivity. I am not blind to the damage that has already been done but I also hold a firm belief in our present view that we must nurture and undo much that has been lost.

 

In my art I attempt to take a more positive view, my landscapes reflect beauty in the present, light and hope for the future. I have been inspired by technology and the images presented. It shows how fragile our blue planet is as a small dot in the vast solar system it inhabits.

 

'While my art presents our earth as fragile and damaged by our selfish behaviour it also demonstrates that it's beauty still survives.'
