Tony Coles

Artwork on display at Gallery Beneath

The inspiration for my work is derived from direct observation of my surroundings and life. My work makes the communication of “feelings” its axis. I am interested in painting the synthesis of elemental weights, space, air and volume with emphasis given to these  through the use of a “full bodied” Australian light.
