Renee Kamaretsos – Moments in Nature

January 12, 2023 @ 9:00 am - February 8, 2023 @ 3:00 pm

‘Moments in Nature’ 

An enchanting exhibition by artist Renee Kamaretsos. On display at The Garden from Thursday 12th of January to Wednesday 8th of February.

Having lived in France and Greece for several years and travelled extensively throughout Europe, Renee acquires inspiration from her ever-changing surroundings to create beautiful contemporary art. Now back home in Australia, Renee has formalised her studies by completing a four year Advanced Diploma in Fine Arts.

Renee has great energy and enthusiasm for painting in a variety of different genres and mediums. The freedom of watercolour, the unlimited expanse of landscape and the curves of the human figure are all fundamental elements in the creation of her desirable artworks. Looking to the natural beauty of her surrounding worlds, Renee captures the mood, harmony and rich palette of colours that effortlessly present themselves.

Renee’s newest series captures the textures, fluidity & movement that one can see just beyond the horizon, while still evoking a calmness within the viewer.

Renee has exhibited and hung at Wollongong City Gallery, Project Gallery, Art Arena Gallery, Shellharbour Village Exhibition Space, Thirroul Sea Side Festival, Woolshed Art Space Gallery, Corn Mill Fine Arts Gallery, Matthew Gillett Gallery, Fern Street Gallery Gerringong , University of Wollongong i Accelerate, Clifton School of Arts, The University of Wollongong Campus in Dubai & The Other Art Fair Sydney. Renee’s private studio is at The Timber Mill Studios, Bulli

Renee collaborates closely & has worked with interior designers and stylists; Colour Council, CP Property Styling, Style by Penelope, Wollongong Design Studio & Bird Black Designs to create stunning art custom made for their clients homes.

“The inspiration for creating always comes from Nature, its colours, texture & the movement of the Ocean.
When immersed in the beauty of our landscape I connect with the shapes around me, never working from a photo 
always working from sketches and memories. I feel this brings more freshness and an essence of abstract to my artworks.
I work in Ink which is a very fluid medium and gives my artworks great softness and also with heavy impasto to bring out the raw texture of our landscape.” – Renee Kamaretsos
