Creative collective ‘Capricorn Fine Arts’ was established in 2016 to promote the practice of Australian-based and emerging artists by offering them an annual residency in Vallauris, near Antibes in the South of France. During its inaugural year, ‘Capricorn Fine Arts’ invited Sally Joubert, Brian Kewley and Rick Matear to Vallauris. All three are established Victorian-based landscape artists who had never previously visited the Cote d'Azur. The resulting works from the residency will now be shown for the very first time during this exhibition at the Alliance Française.



About the artists

SALLY JOUBERT


After completing a Diploma in Graphic Design, working as a designer in London and finishing a 4 month painting course in Florence, Mebourne-based artist Sally Joubert began painting full-time in 1989. Mixing streetscapes and familiar architectural iconography with coastal views, Sally "re-imagines" landscapes in her own distinctive style. With her trademark thick brush strokes and deft use of the palette knife, Sally adds fresh, immediate and vibrant doses of colour, giving her work its unique vitality.

Sally's work can be found in private collections in Australia and abroad, whilst she has also been shortlisted for a number of prestigious Australian art prizes.

BRIAN KEWLEY


With a painting career spanning over 50 years, Brian Kewley has held over 25 solo exhibitions in Australia and was also invited to exhibit at the Palazzo Parisio in Malta. He is famous for his beach and bay paintings, as well as paintings produced whilst travelling overseas. Painting both in gouaches and oils, Brian's palette is both bright and exciting, resulting in lively landscape paintings.

His work is owned by many private collectors and can also be seen in the National Gallery of Victoria, the State Gallery of Queensland and the Reserve Bank of Australia.


RICK MATEAR


The natural world, its beauty and the interaction between people and the built form provide a constant source of inspiration for Australian painter Rick Matear. His fascination with the sea and its ever-changing light is also evident in several of his paintings.

Rick studied at the Victorian College of the Arts, Melbourne and after graduating, travelled to Europe where he completed further study in London as well as spending time painting in Italy.
