Exhibition dates May 16 – June 1
Otto Boron is an artist that paints from the heart. To quote Otto “my paintings contain all the honesty and truth that I possess .It is not surprising then that Otto Boron in collaboration with Cambridge Studio Gallery in Collingwood will be holding an exhibition of paintings that will be part of a fund raising event that will aid the Build Foundation , a non-profit organization which assists children, their families and the communities in Cambodia to meet their basic needs and to increase their ability to improve their economic & social circumstances.
Build Foundation Inc. is a non-religious, non-political humanitarian organization, established in 2010. Build Foundations mission is to create a society where all children are provided with adequate protection, education, care and support to develop to their full potential.
Build Foundation in partnership with Khmer Association for Development (Cambodia) are developing a ‘Community ,Vulnerable Children, Development Centre’. The complex will house a medical centre, education and learning classrooms, vocational training building, library and agricultural areas.
Otto Boron is a well-established and award winning artist. His work is bold and colourful. Expressionistic in style his imagery can depict landscapes , aspects of Australian vistas, portraits, and particular life scenes. There is often a strong sense of the mystical in his work. Whether it be depicting a nude figure in a bush landscape or a deserted farmhouse or shed, there is a strong sense of mystery in the imagery. Otto works to resolve the world that is presented to him with his own inner vision. He conceives an idea, then pursues this vision until it becomes resolved as a work. After many years of dedication to his art he has reached a high level of expertise and confidence and a deeply personalized oeuvre. This is the individuality of art which stands alone for each artist. The exhibition will include some special pieces that have been inspired by Otto’s feelings and reactions to the difficult and challenging environment that Cambodian people often find themselves in. Other works will include landscapes and figurative studies that highlight Otto’s sheer love of paint which he renders with his strong impasto technique.
The Exhibition will be opened on Wednesday May 15 from 7-9pm by TV personality and announcer Jennifer Hansen . Robert Lee president C. A. S. Victoria Inc. will give an address on Otto Boron’s works and career.
Hoping you can come along to this very special show.
