Conversation with the Artists & Gallery Tour

Hiren’s beautiful visual representations provide inspiration – perfectly illustrating what an immense Influence the natural beauty around us can have on the imagination of an artist. When contemplating the majesty of Australian bushscapes it’s hard to go past the tranquil and calming images painted by Sydney artist Hiren Patel.

They are rich in colour and texture and literally dance across the canvas. Many of the paintings evoke emotional responses and awe, particularly because they are so beautiful and detailed – especially the leaf detail in this series. But also, because they seem to have a sort of allure that affects the viewer which keeps them totally interested and takes inspiration from Hiren’s journeying around the countryside. Many of the studies for his paintings can be seen in small sketch books that outline in both painting and in words, the ideas and details pertaining to individual sights and compositions. It has often been my delight to scour through these delightful pages and gain some insight into Hiren’s inner world and the concepts and ideas that initiate his masterly works.

Welcome to this art exhibition celebrating the extraordinary talent of Hiren Patel, a versatile artist who has an innate ability to create unique works across all genres. This exhibition will showcase Hiren’s exceptional contemporary landscapes and abstracted views that are imbued with an unparalleled richness of colour, texture, and movement. Hiren’s dedication and love for his arts practice is extraordinary, and obvious, and I am sure you will enjoy these as much as I do.

Australian landscape painting evokes a strong sense of place. Whether it’s the vastness of the outback, the ruggedness of the mountains, or the tranquillity of the shoreline, these artworks transport viewers to the heart of the Australian contemporary environment. They create a sense of connection and nostalgia, reminding us of the beauty and power of the natural world.

Contemporary Australian landscape painting celebrates the unique and diverse beauty of the country’s terrain. Through their artistic vision, Australian landscape artists capture the essence of the land, its history, and its significance, creating a rich and vibrant artistic tradition that continues to evolve and inspire.

Hiren’s artworks perfectly illustrate what an immense Influence the natural beauty around us can have on the imagination of an artist.

‘Contemplation: A landscape journey’ is not to be missed.
Henry Matisse once said: “An artist must possess Nature. He must identify himself with her rhythm, by efforts that will prepare the mastery which will later enable him to express himself in his own language.”
