Oil & Water is a collaborative exhibition exploring coastal connections and featuring the recent work of Victoria-based artists Natalie Shumka and Selina Jorgensen. Working primarily in oils, Shumka’s traditional style of realism captures the beauty in everyday objects. Current studies involve glass objects surrounded by driftwood, seashells and feathers. Inspired by themes of collection, bio-diversity and personal symbolism, Jorgensen creates illustrative imagery of waves and found objects from nature using water-based paints.
