Foyer Gallery: Mandurah Plein Air Artists Incorporated

The main gallery features artists Warwick Fuller, Leon Holmes and Jos Coufreur who present their uniquely individual response to the landscape, with plein air studies exhibited alongside larger studio works, inspired by the natural and built environment.

Warwick Fuller is one of Australia’s foremost living landscape painters, a Fellow of the Royal Art Society of NSW and has paintings hung in private, corporate and institutional collections in Australia and overseas.

Leon Holmes is a professional, international award-winning artist who paints from life on location, without the aid of photography.  He uses his small studies as reference for larger works created in his studio and travels regularly to exhibit and teach.

Jos Coufreur began en plein air six years ago after moving from NZ to Australia. He captures the Australian landscape in vibrant colour and also enjoys painting streetscapes and heritage buildings.

 “For me painting is an unfathomable process of the heart and I trust my intuition to lift me to where logic can’t go.”– Warwick Fuller
