Recent Works exhibit has our north-west in focus

DIETER Engler’s Recent Works exhibition featuring representations of northern Western Australian landscape opened at the Greenhill Galleries yesterday.

The exhibition focuses on scenes from Geraldton and Kalbarri National Park and incorporates a range of landscapes of the State’s north-west, which are often overshadowed by South-West art.

The German-born artist uses his innate European impressionism in his depictions of WA’s rural landscape.

The scenes are small and his use of stark and simplistic imagery highlights the isolation of small north-west towns but conveys that the small population makes a large impression on the landscape. Dieter highlights topical issues of the north-west, in particular the loss of natural landscape to commercial development. He juxtaposes man-made structures with natural surroundings. In particular, Dieter creates man-focused scenes using houses and telegraphs poles to highlight the importance of human communication on rural properties.

In contrast, other paintings show the serenity of the north-west landscape, particularly the Kalbarri National Park. And while the focus on the north-west is welcome, other areas of the State also are depicted in a similar fashion.

Dieter Engler’s Recent Works features artwork drawn at the following areas: York, Rottnest, Darlington, Margaret River, Gin Gin and the Murchison Gorge.

Dieter painted these beautiful impressionist landscape works on his last visit to WA. There are approximately 35 works of varying sizes in the exhibition, which is currently showing at the Greenhill Galleries, 37 King Street Perth. The exhibition closes on March 13.
