Gemma Donnellan (1971-.) Australia

Biographical Information

Gemma is currently studying Visual Arts at RMIT Tafe and is a member of the National Gallery of Victoria. She has been painting for 7 years and printmaking for 2 years inspired by the divine colours of nature.

Gemma was part of a group Printmaking and Photography exhibition at ‘Artholes’ Gallery, Gertrude Street Fitzroy in July of 2005. She also displayed a piece in the Shift#1 art and performance exhibition held in Brunswick in May and has six artworks on permanent display at the ‘Feeling For Life’ Health and Wellbeing clinic in Armadale.

Gemma’s painting ‘Taller Poppies’ was pre-selected for the prestigious Cromwell’s Art Prize although not making the final exhibition the painting was exhibited at Cromwell’s Art Gallery for 3 days then sold at auction in April 2004.

Gemma was chosen to exhibit in the Walker Street Gallery ‘She’s a Bitch’ competition in March 2004.

Gemma held a solo exhibition of 18 works, ‘First’ from August to September 2003 at the Level 11 Gallery, Flinders Lane. Gemma’s work described as “organic, emotional and passionate, which at first appear light-hearted but carry in them an eerie sense of something perhaps darker, struggling to emerge”.

One of Gemma’s larger paintings ‘My Magnolias’ is now part of the Peter MacCallum Hospital Collection.

Gemma travelled extensively through Europe and Asia between 1995–1997, based in London. This experience revived her love for art and culture. Upon her return took up painting as a part time hobby, which has grown and flourished into an artistic endeavour, working mainly in oils to create lush, vivid landscapes.
