I am exceptionally proud to announce that I will be exhibiting my works at the Gosford Regional Art Gallery from December all the way through to February this year. I'm so happy working closely with the gallery and the amazing art curator Jasmine Kean to make this experience unforgettable. Paintings of all register; saturated and vivid, along with the more subdued ones will all find their place on the walls and light up the foyer for those few magic months.
Katerina Apale: Present Memories - Opening Saturday 17 December 2022
Exhibition dates 17 December 2022 – 26 February 2023
Relocating to Australia in 2014 from Europe, Latvian born Katerina Apale shares her awe of her unique Australian coastal surrounds through vibrant paintings. Her artwork intwines lived experience, bringing memory and the present into a two-dimensional fold. Carrying with her the importance of being in the ‘here and now’, while still
there is always a part of ourselves which is our unescapable personal histories. Apale is a second-generation painter and has spent time living and working as an artist in Berlin before relocating to the Central Coast NSW, where she works both en plein air and in her studio, with still life floral arrangements. Her paintings become versed in both saturated colour and muted tones, ink and oil on canvas, reflecting an appreciation of the surrounding natural and social environments for which she now calls home.
