Introducing Marlene Butteriss

Open Art Exhibition on @ CFA  Sunday 25th August!

We are so privileged to introduce to you Marlene Butteriss our artist for August!

“I was born in Australia where I have lived all of my life. I’ve been drawing since early childhood. I’ve explored a large range of artistic modalities; music, dance, textiles, design, writing, painting, sculpture and digital creations

For me, self-expression through art is something heart centred; it is sacred, and intrinsically bonded to the spiritual. My artwork is an expression of the divine self, and the heart of femininity in all its glorious forms. I can paint as soft as a fairy or a butterfly, as loving and embracing as a mother, as sexy and swaying as a goddess or a hooker. I can paint as the soft rain or as a thunderstorm. I can paint as Kali and bring down the house. I bring the hidden into the light so that we can see, we three can see, you me, and she. Together we can feel into the expression of the Her divine.

I am inspired by nature; by dragonflies, jungles, the micro and the macro. I love beautiful places and they find their way onto my canvas. I am inspired by the eyes of a beloved, the lips of a lover, and the heart of a soul mate.

Most often I use acrylic to explore the unseen, to paint intuitive until what is offered is revealed. I aim to explore love, transformation, spiritual evolution, human connection and the divine feminine in all of its forms.”

Aveo Retirement Village Artists Albany Creek

Cup From Above is honored to be able to exhibit a small collection of beautiful artworks from the Aveo retirement Village art group.  Just a few suburbs away in Albany Creek a small group of retirees; beginner and experienced alike, gather together once a week with brushes in hand to spend time creating beautiful artworks. One resident shared that as well as learning from their art facilitator, the more experienced artists among the group, love to share their rich knowledge with those who are just uncovering their talent. Although this is only a small collection, you will be able to see the care and skill that has gone into painting delicate petals, glints of light on water and the beautiful colors of nature. We hope that you can enjoy these precious works as much as we do! Artworks from Aveo Retiree art group Albany Creek will be exhibited until the end of May.

A special thank you to all the amazing artists from Aveo Albany Creek!
