Anne Mestitz and Paul Snell: Timbre  
 - Art Collector

Anne Mestitz, ‘I Will Never Be Able To Tell You What It Felt Like’, 2018. Mixed media on wooden panel, 120 x 120 x 3.2cm. Courtesy: the artist and Colville Gallery, Hobart.
  Two artists whose understanding, exploration and exacting purpose of colour bring together works that push a sensory response to hues through a ground, field, slither, tipping interruption, overlay, obstruction, juxtaposition halt or continuation... to create a resonance and or vibration such as you would expect in a musical harmony.

While Snell confidently advances lines of colour with dialogue utilizing high gloss acrylic and resin layered pictures, he has quoted from Kandinsky as perfect response to his work in relation to colour and sound.

Mestitz's primary focus is on colour, form and line as a means of expression. Underpinning these formal devices is an enquiry into the vagaries of colour, the nature of visual perception, making “concrete” this sensation, further taking grabs of musical scores for a riff or a pause and pondering how to paint an abstract thought such as “I will never be able to tell you what it felt like”.
