Maureen Hansen

From Life : Brisbane Light

For 30 years Maureen Hansen has continued the tradition of plein-air painting brought to us by the Impressionists. By painting her immediate surroundings over hours at a time, Hansen mixes the colours unique to the Queensland sky. At QUT Hansen was fortunate to have the tuition of William Robinson and in 2019 Hansen has been asked to form an exhibition around the theme of colour for the Old Government House Gallery at QUT. Robinson said “if you paint your life you will never go wrong”. This sterling piece of advice has driven Hansen’s work to capture the feeling of change in Brisbane City.

This has resulted in her usual thickly painted still-life's and landscapes painted in oils and gouache which feature in ‘From Life : Brisbane Light’.
