Greta Guzek’s paintings are characterized by her distinctive approach to line and colour and their calming effect on the viewer. By way of South Africa, she paints from her home on the Sunshine Coast, where the rhythmic waves of west coast life undulate from her brush. This sense of place resonates in her practice, it being an exercise in expressing joy through seeing and feeling the everyday. Each painting’s mood is announced through colouring – the tropical saturation of pinks and yellows and the rich greens and blues of the rain forest perform their time of day with kaleidoscopic energy.
