I just thought I would share some work from one of my favourite Australian painters as I am doing a assignment on her at the moment. Her name is Louise Hearman and she was born in Melbourne, Australia in 1963. Hearman’s works are characterised by surreal juxtapositions, eerie light, and strong emotive emphasis. I am going to be looking at her work in reference to my major this semester. I will talk more about that later in time. If anyone else knows the work of Bill Henson, It is interesting to note that Hearman use to collaborate a lot with the Australian photographer. You can see a similar style in both of their works. I really admire her work and her skill is amazing, be sure to look at her work further.
