The Place I Call Home
July 23, 2022Free
Solo exhibition of Artworks by Fern Siebler.
Fern Siebler is an abstract artist who grew up locally in Taggerty, in a home hidden amongst bushland at the base of the Cathedral Ranges. Fern describes growing up in the beautiful town as the beginning of her passion for all things creative, and when her love of the earth, colour, light, and the flow of nature began.
After graduating high school in Alexandra in 2010, Fern then trained as a graphic designer (BA.Communication Design), and worked in this field for several years. Fast forward to now and she is currently working solely as an artist.
Many aspects of her artworks draw from her formal design training – negative space, colour, balance – to name a few. Fern’s abstractions are best known to be layered and flowing, heavily inspired by the fluidity and movement of the earth’s elements; water, air, fire and smoke.
She says, “I am inspired by nature and also draw from my own personal experiences, allowing the emotions, memories, feelings to guide my intuitive painting process. My artworks across all mediums are expressive and full of movement. When I paint I pour my heart and soul into the artwork.”
Fern’s works have been featured several times on popular renovation shows ‘The Block’ & ‘House Rules’. She has collaborated with renowned beauty empire ‘Ella Bache’, and several of her works hang proudly in the newly built Crown Sydney, One Barangaroo. Her works are in collections across Australia and internationally.
Fern tells us she is excited to be doing her very first solo exhibition in the Murrindindi region, right in the heart of Marysville, where she spent lots of her childhood, and isn’t far from home at Taggerty. She says, “I couldn’t think of a better place in the world to continue my art journey and present my latest artworks at my first solo exhibition, other than the place I call home!”.
‘The place I call home’ exhibition includes a collection of original abstract works heavily inspired by Fern’s memories of growing up in the local area, and the inevitable inspiration and influence this has had on her life and artistic career. Some of her favourite things are the sunlight at golden hour, the stars and the night sky, mountains at sunset, and the sounds of the birds. At her exhibition she hopes to bring you a sense of nostalgia, an air of warmth, and most of all – feelings of home.
