Nikki's work is focused on trees. She admires them and their ability to transport the viewer to a place that feels whimsical, otherworldly and calm.
This body of work includes pastel drawings and some acrylic paintings, all created from photographs taken on walks from the top of Spring Creek to Queen Mary Falls. It also includes imagery from other parts of the Scenic Rim.
The collection includes images of the Spring Creek drive, with is a sealed road bordered by tall, colourful trees. It includes work which looks at the depths of the forest, looking beyond to bordering open spaces, and work which encompasses the dark areas of this place, thick with overgrowth and moss covered trees.
In addition, imagery from Springbrook is also featured, showcasing little showers of light in such a dense rainforest setting. Each piece has a story.
The Allora Photography Club will hold their first group exhibition at Warwick Art Gallery starting on the 3rd of May.
The exhibition will depict our national anthem “Advance Australia Fair” with the verses of the anthem represented in photographic images taken by members of the group.
This ambitious concept has really challenged the group who were determined for their first gallery exhibition to be professional and memorable.
The Allora Photography Group aims to promote and advance the local photography scene by encouraging meetings to facilitate the exchange of ideas, techniques and above all friendship and support of each other.
Visitors to the exhibition will enjoy interpreting the narrative of the anthem and how it relates to the matching image.
