FOUR heARTs+minds  

klein-image

Four women with a love of art and design, from three generations and different backgrounds, bound by friendship and a strong desire for creative visual expression, decided on a random whim to step outside their comfort zone and show their individual work together in one space.   Jan Barnett, a retired law secretary, Michelle Roberts, a graduate of landscape architecture, designer Elke Klein and high school student Rose Schafer are the FOUR heARTs+minds behind the upcoming exhibition of the same title at the Balmain Watch House. Works on show will include a surprising and eclectic mix of delicate water colour flower paintings, hand painted ceramics, quirky colourful fabric pieces, including bags and wall hangings, as well as drawings, collages and illustrations with a surreal take on youth, suburbia and strange dreams – all inspired by the immediate world around us and fuelled by emotional experience.
