Brian Sinfield Art Gallery
Brendon is a successful Sydney painter with a unique way of capturing landscape. With numerous solo exhibitions and whose paintings are held in private and corporate collections worldwide, his highly textural paintings have a sensuous, tactile quality which evocatively capture the vibrancy and development of Sydney in high-key and slightly blended palettes. He works in a range of styles to create large format, abstract paintings in oil on canvas. Using a technique perfected over the last 20 years, Mogg builds up thick layers of oil paint. His other style of art is a collage technique using previous geometric oil paintings. These paintings are then cut with formula and then re-placed and collaged onto new canvases. The technique was established in the later part of 2007 and again has brought new crowds and followers to Brendon’s unique work.

The gallery is delighted to receive a new body of work by Endre Röder.
Now in his mid 80s, Endre Röder is still producing work of sheer delight. Many of his paintings shimmer with dabs of colour, lighting up the canvas. Other works, rich in tone, are more subtle. They almost saturate the composition with blocks of colour, producing a soft beauty reminiscent of Gauguin. Influencers abound – Chagall, Balthus, Picasso and Modigliani with his use of strongly defining lines, particularly around the face of his models. It is a recurring theme in Röder's work that evokes fun and movement. Images from other artists frequently kick-start ideas which in turn motivate his sense of colour and design, culminating in work that is distinctly his own. Occasionally he uses the trick of chiaroscuro (light against dark) to illuminate an image, it's use brought to perfection by Dutch artists of the Golden Age who also, occasionally like Röder, filled their paintings with symbolic meaning.
Looking at these paintings it becomes perfectly obvious that the artist is captivated by women, and they appear in almost of all his compositions. He treats them with respect and deep sensuality and often places them in imaginative settings. But his women are strong – no shrinking violets here. They all look ready to take on the world. So – enigmatic, faintly surreal, thought provoking and quite beautiful, Endre Röder's work is also stunning.

Colourful and striking, Elaine Kazimierczuk’s paintings are impossible to ignore. Full of energy and vitality and inspired by the natural world, many of her works are interpretations of intimately-known localities. In her semi-abstract studies of meadows, trees and hedgerows, she achieves a tension between looseness and control, which enables her to convey the sense of place. Elaine is a self-taught artist who paints very much in her own style. Frequently working on a red ground which resonates with the vibrant over-painting, she adopts a bold approach, so that there is an evident freedom in the brushwork. In many paintings, where her mark-making appears unpremeditated, colour heightened paint applied spontaneously, touched or scraped, there is a judiciously managed untidiness about the work. The result is a kind of chaos but one which captures the intricate assemblage of the wild beauty she finds in nature.
"Some of my paintings are based on wild flower meadows which are maintained by the charity 'Plantlife' and I have pledged a donation to the organisation from the proceeds of these sales. I’m supporting 'Plantlife' because I want future generations to continue to enjoy our natural heritage. 'Plantlife' is doing invaluable work to save endangered plant species and their habitats. I hope my work will encourage others to make an emotional connection to these precious places, as I do – one which inspires us to value and protect the natural world" Elaine Kazimierczuk
