A man who works with his hands is a laborer; a man who works with his hands and his brain is a craftsman; but a man who works with his hands and his brain and his heart is an artist.

Liquid Light by Narelle Pendlebury

Narelle Pendlebury

Narelle Pendlebury is an established West Australian artist with a background in Fine Arts and Art Education.  Narelle has been exhibiting as a professional artist for over 25 years within Western Australia and interstate.  Narelle continues to combine her work in Art Education with her professional art practice, and her work is represented by several galleries within WA, and is held in many corporate and private collections throughout Australia and overseas.

Narelle works in many mediums and has developed a practice that fuses and extends the processes and disciplines of drawing, printmaking, painting and textiles, with an emphasis on the interplay of surface, material and texture.  An integral part of her work is the concept and activity of layering – dyed, printed and painted materials, often transparent and translucent, are stitched and embellished with embossed shims and printed surfaces.  Acrylic and oil media are the subtly layered over these pieces to create a highly worked and jewel-like surfaces.
