Angela + Kellie

Angela Coombs Matthews is a painter, printmaker and photographer who has exhibited across the Riverina and Canberra. Most recently she was the 2011 winner of the Casella Art Prize, Griffith Regional Art Gallery.

Kellie Hulm is a painter, photographer, performer and ceramic artist who has exhibited work for the past three years in Art to Crow About. Kellie has been involved in the All Abilities Theatre Company as a performer.

Angela and Kellie have explored two different mediums in their art making: painting and digital media. Their large diptych paintings on paper are loose and wandering using inks, gouache and watercolour focusing on beautiful mark making. Angela and Kellie grew up and continue to live in their respective towns of Temora and Junee. The colours in these neighbouring landscapes inform the work and are present in their colour choices. The digital media series was created merging portraits of each other in photoshop to create new portraits where their individual approaches to mark making become one.
