AIDAN WEICHARD ‘Living in Colour’
27 March – 27 April 2021
Over the past few years Aidan has been painting using mixed media with his subject matter the Australian native wildlife and flora, as well as the stoic livestock that covers large parts of the Australian landscape. This new body of work ‘Living in Colour’ is an extension of Weichards pathway to discovering himself as an artist and what it means to be an Australian artist in the current climate.
Weichard sees the world through a coloured lens, particularly the native wildlife that he was surrounded by as a child growing up in the bush. These native animals, his own animals and the eucalyptus canopy that Weichard grew up in resonates deeply within him and is what directly inspires him to create. This body of work aims to showcase the beauty within our country using bold and bright colours as well as the multi-layered and textural approach that Weichard uses to build each of these works. Every piece contains emotion, movement and energy.
