WILD AND TAME - Drawings and watercolours by Jennifer Ure and mixed media paintings by Jeannie Heynatz

Jeannie-Image-2

Gallery 1 : Jeannie Heynatz paintings.

"For this body of work I have reflected upon the ‘wild’ and ‘tame’ elements in Nature, and how these relate to the human condition.
Just as Nature (the environment, flora and fauna) is at its most glorious when untouched, as people we are born instinctually complete (‘wild’). But as Nature is manipulated to meet man’s perceived needs, with time and imposed expectation we are ‘tamed’ by a conformity dictated by cultural and social conditioning."

Gallery 2 and 3 : Jennifer Ure drawings and watercolours.

"Originally trained in nursing and having worked in the fields of biological sciences and education, I have always had an innate fascination for the anatomy and physiology of animals, plants and the human body. Bringing this interest into my art, the evolution of my drawing skills since the early 70s has expanded from pencil and ink into a variety of paint mediums."

Both Jeannie and Jennifer are Gippslanders and have shared a long friendship.
