Watercolour Painting – Abstract Expressionism:
Kurt Koeppl – Living in ‘sub-tropical’ Maroubra, Kurt has painted most of his life and many of his friends have his work hanging on their walls.
Trained in the graphic arts, with a solid foundation in drawing and colour knowledge, and working commercially, there were often conflicts and confusion between the graphic commercial work and the freedom of expression in the fine arts.
Dappling in many mediums and genres over the years, watercolour has become Kurt’s preferred modus operandi. Initially painting traditionally, capturing the reflections of romantic cities and beautiful seascapes of Sydney beaches.
Kurt’s current abstract and expressionist work reflects the world around us, evokes emotions, conversation and encourages viewers to determine their own interpretation.
Kurt joined Randwick Art Society in 2010. He is one of two CASS representatives (Combined Art Societies of Sydney) for Randwick Art Society for 2020.
