SALLY Whisson MATTNER

Sally is an Australian Artist living in Geelong, Victoria.

She has been involved in art making in one form or another for over 30 years: teaching art, working in the art industry and exhibiting in 3 solo exhibitions, 3 combined exhibitions and various community art shows. She has painted in watercolours, acrylics, mixed media and pastels and has been exploring oils for the last 6 years.

 “I paint what takes my eye and inspires me. From everyday objects to magical places and interesting people.
Expressing something more than reality is my aim. I strive to reinterpret reality with more than the eye can see: with mood, character and personal expression…. which ideally encourages the viewer to be involved in the artwork.

My style is organic as I explore art techniques, challenge myself and take risks. Each piece totally absorbs me, posing problems to be solved, generating ideas in the exploration of media and methods and requiring my full immersion in the artwork”.
