Kathryn Ellen Wilson: Faces of Balmoral

Faces of Balmoral features the large scale portrait paintings of locally-based artist Kathryn Ellen Wilson and is a celebration of the community of Balmoral.

Kathryn moved to the Balmoral area in early September 2021 and was grateful for the warmth, kindness and generosity she experienced from across the community. This exhibition is a gift back to the community members who extended her the hand of friendship, and has been previously exhibited at Balmoral Memorial Hall during Autumn 2023 in the exhibition The Good People of Balmoral.

“In my small way, I hoped to capture the essence of each of the subjects; showcasing their personalities and allowing me to celebrate the connections I have made in such a relatively short time” explains the artist.

Citing influences such as Australians David Darcy and Dan Butterworth, and overseas artists Jane French, Rogier Willems and Andreas Liss – Faces of Balmoral showcases Kathryn’s ability to employ colour as well as light and shade, to convey idiosyncrasies of her sitter’s characters. She playfully establishes a sense of closeness and affection, despite the ‘larger than life’ canvas size.
