Helen Dubrovich: My Watercolour World -  - Glebe - NSW
Join Vinh Van Lam and Stuart Horrex as we celebrate the launch of a solo exhibition by Helen Dubrovich. Helen Dubrovich, born in Germany of Russian parents, migrated to Australia when she was 3. When quite young, Helen started to travel overseas and this influenced her work which is quite eclectic. Helen has chosen to work in a variety of media with various subject matter, rather than sticking to one genre. She felt staying with one type of subject and one medium would lead to boredom, not only to herself but to her viewers. Helen’s artworks cover not only a number of media such as watercolour, acrylic, pastel and pencil. However, her artwork encompasses a number of styles but even then her artwork and style are recognisable through her joyous use of colour, exuberance, texture and detail. Travel and painting. Both things that I love to do. The travel bit came about when I was around 12 years of age and I was taking private lessons in painting with my first art teacher, a Russian artist that my father knew. My teacher told me stories about when he had travelled to so many lands, seen so many cultures and so many people. My teacher was the one who put the idea into my head that I needed to travel and see the world and see how other people lived. When I was asked to do another solo show, I had no idea what to paint. But when I thought about it I realised I wanted to share my travels over the years but through my paintings and as they say a picture is worth a thousand words. So appropriately I’ve called this solo show My Watercolour World. Helen Dubrovich. Opening: Saturday 10 March, 1pm to 3pm. Well-known travel writer and speaker Walter Mason will open the show.
