Award winning local artist Ricky Schembri will hold his first solo show at The Artery this April. Celebrating his love of South West Victoria, ‘Progression in Pastel’ is a retrospective of Ricky’s practice so far, which started twenty years ago when he moved to the region. ‘Pastel’ refers not to colour, but to chalk pastels. Each picture depicts every day, familiar rural scenes of cows, paddocks and sheds, but in a glorious spectrum of colour with shadows tinted purple, and fields striped with apricot sunlight. The result is a series of lifelike, yet playful and somewhat nostalgic landscape

Ricky got his start thanks to the influence, support and workshops run by W.A.D.A.S. (Warrnambool And District Artists’ Society). As many artists, art was a big part of Ricky’s childhood, “but I was in my late twenties when, out of curiosity I turned up to one of the meetings at the Warrnambool Artist’s Society. It was here that my passion to become an artist began. I chose the pastel medium for its ease of use, and fell in love with it. My passion for art continues to grow stronger, to the point where now all I think about are the possibilities of where my art can take me.”

“Every painting I do gives me a sense of gratification, and it has changed my life for the better.” Ricky’s aim is, “to explore how I can turn an ordinary scene into something that reminds people how beautiful our world is.” He wants to give this gift to others and consequently will run two workshops.
