SALA Artist in Residence - Athanasia Sitaras
To celebrate the South Australian Living Artists Festival this year, the City of Burnside is hosting an Artist in Residence at the Civic Centre throughout August.
Athanasia's stunning works of art will also be on display in the Cloisters exhibition space, which is inspired by impressionism, abstract art and still life.
As a mother of two young children, Athanasia said she strives to create artwork "that is like a window into a garden of profound beauty and brightness." This is done primarily through oil paints based on a stretched canvas or linen/canvas paper.
"I love to create highly textured artwork that exhibit depth and a three-dimensional look, often inspired by people's gardens when I take my dog for a walk and I study the garden and use that memory to create," Athanasia said.
"During my residency, I will be exhibiting and creating these gardens and flowers, which I hope you will all enjoy seeing.
"I also look forward to meeting new people and fellow artists."
You can watch Athanasia at work every Tuesday and Wednesday during August in the Cloisters exhibition space.
