An award winning Australian
landscape artist

Welcome to the online gallery for professional artist Werner Filipich

I have always admired and been inspired by the impressionist painters Heyson, Roberts, McCubbin, Condor and Streeton, their handling of light and contrasting colour depicted in their impressions of the ever changing hues of the Australian scenery.

Streeton wrote an apologia to the public in 1889 after the 9 x 5 exhibition of 183 works

"An effect is only momentary: so an impressionist tries to find his place, two half hours are never alike, and he who tries to paint a sunset on two successive evenings must be more or less painting from memory. So, in these works, it has been the object of the artists to render faithfully, and thus obtain first records of effects widely differing, and often very fleeting character.”

This statement constantly reminds me of the ever changing colour's of the landscape before me, it changes minute by minute and whilst on site I must capture and transform as quickly as possible the scene onto my blank canvas. Being a professional artist is an exciting journey and is a never ending learning experience. Werner Filipich

The Romantics

The Romantics

I, together with 4 professional artists, brought together over 30 years ago by our love of art and admiration for the techniques and qualities of  works of the old masters, participate in an annual exhibition held at the Hunters Hill Town Hall usually around early September, this year 2019 being our 10th exhibition.  All artists involved are recognised and collected globally with numerous awards and international sales.

A donation from the sales of paintings at this exhibition are donated to The Life house a charity for the prevention and treatment of all cancer patients.

The name "The Romantics" is derived  from the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood a group of 5 artist founded in  1848 whose paintings show a great deal of romanticism.

Looking forward to September

Looking forward to September

September this year I will be travelling to Boston and Maine to capture the beautiful countryside during fall, having never been to this part of the world but hearing and seeing so many paintings of other artists I’m sure I will be mesmerized by the landscape before me.

The Festival of the Palettes

The Festival of the Palettes

The first months of 2019 have been spent in the studio getting together paintings for any upcoming exhibitions, the first being held at the Morpeth Gallery in Morpeth – titled The Festival of the Palettes it is a weekend of all those interested in art and craft showcasing their wares, all in all a lovely weekend spent together with fellow artists some of who actually do setup their easels and paint. Customers find this very interesting as some have no concept of the time and effort put into each pieces of artwork.
