Exhibition begins Saturday 1 December
‘Retrospective Bruges to Casuarina – Journey of Change”
Casuarina Ocean Retreat, set in nature and beach with the sound of rolling surf is the setting for the Koningen Exhibition, ‘Retrospective Bruges to Casuarina – Journey of Change’.
Tweed Region. Koningen is exhibiting his works from both the Bruges Studio and more recent Yarraville Melbourne Studio.
Entering the spacious white open reception, we are met with the “Midsummers Series, Blue Moon” painting, and so, the journey begins, with paintings that remind us of the sea to the more intricate “Colours” and soft hues of “Winters Beach” plus much more! The paintings Svein has selected for this beautiful building are complementary to the space with nature and ocean.
Change is a constant for this artist.
- Past studios in Melbourne, Brisbane and the very successful Living Studio Gallery in Noosa Heads, 1997 – 2005.
- Relocating in 2005 to the stunning UNESCO BELGIUM city of Bruges in Belgium, Koningen’s studio quickly became the must visit for locals and international art lovers.
- Closing his Bruges studio in 2016 this being a heart decision, coming back to Australia for family and friends.
Koningen is now based in Casuarina.
