QUEENSLAND based artist Caroline Magerl will be demonstrating her portrait preparation techniques in London this weekend. Her live charcoal drawing will take place on Saturday 9 March from 12 to 5pm at Debut Contemporary, 82 Westbourne Grove, London W2 (nearest tubes: Bayswater or Royal Oak).
Ms Magerl states that her work is a visual language to express her journey in life. Her early influences were of a childhood spent travelling the East Coast of Australia on her father’s self-build 45-foot yacht. Her later influences were to be her vivid dreams.
As well as portrait painting, Ms Magerl works in other media including fine art, printmaking and children’s books following a grant from the Australian Council for Arts.
The London skyline inspired her on her last visit and the resulting etchings will also be on show at the gallery.
