Kari Bienert Installation Pictures “When Mummy Paints”

Hello all,

What an incredible month of paintings up at BMGART for my show that ended on April 15. I also had a jumpsuit made from the 2016 painting Citadel which was a fabric field of colour! After 11 months of intense focus here are a few pictures of installation and opening!

Its back to the Studio after a great break, so many new ideas are forming and they’re not just on the canvas!

Kari Bienert “When Mummy Paints” Exhibition

The two most powerful warriors are patience and time……Leo Tolstoy

I am nearly there, I am surrounded by paintings and can hardly fit in my studio. When Mummy Paints an exhibition of my latest works opens March 24 at BMGART South Australia.

The intense preparation of the last 11 months fills my mind, heart and life. Works sit around me waiting, reflecting, glowing,… whether someone is there or not. The raw light shows every line etched into an ancient face, silent, half lit dusty space. The mind see-saws between judgement nonchalance…. resignation…nothingness. There I am again at the familiar point where I continue into the night.

The scene changes and the galloping ecstasy of light and knowledge sweep through, every brushstroke is illumined, […]

Kari Bienert Happy New Year all! May 2018 be filled with Peace, Love and Art.

Happy New Year all! May 2018 be filled with peace, love and Art!

Holidays have been wandering beach scapes and inner glades of new work coming up for air to the faces of loved ones. My girls have been busy in the studio creating mini aquariums and illuminated paintings from acrylics alongside long diatribe with invisible friends and mentors. It’s a wondrous time.

I’m so very excited to announce “When Mummy Paints.”, an exhibition of new works opening on March 24, 2018 at BMGART South Australia.

From the whirling laughter of children, and dreams made of energy and light. From Colours mixed through sadness, band aids and grief. From all the moments that make up the wholeness of life – it is from […]

Kari Bienert New Works “Desert Women Dreaming” Never Ending Children’s Path

For the past few months I have been focusing intensely on my new work Desert Woman Dreaming (never ending children’s path) in preparation for my solo show at BMGArt in March 2018 and Little Treasures group exhibition in Italy in November.

I can’t always reckon  with myself as to why I can’t whip up a work quickly..Why does one square sometimes take me 30 minutes to mix and place the colour?. This latest painting has taken two and a half months and I feel pressured by deadlines daily. Such is the nature and depth of my colourfield practice and this I must make peace with. Working towards an exhibition is a huge  soul investment and nothing draws me like this communion […]

Kari Bienert Into The Stars

There is something enlivening about revisiting a book you read when you were 16 or a place that was important years ago. The words are the same, the waves lap as they once did, things seem similar.. but you’ve changed, a later version of yourself stands beside you, a traveler you know so well blankets you with knowledge, there is no turning back, you can only step forward into the new journey. When the baby is ready to be born our eyes are fixed firmly on the moment.

It is now I am looking back to TRIANGLES in my work and the special language they convey. The painting that sung in my head was “Sahra and Starry Kari”, painted years ago. […]
