Corrine Rapley is an Australian landscape painter, working both outdoors En Plein Air and from her Bouvard home studio, south of Perth WA.
Born at Donnybrook WA in 1962, Corrine’s artworks explore regions of Western Australia’s landscape hemmed by coastlines and waterways, a true-life record of her experiences and love for scenery. Her oil paintings are influenced by nature’s prismatic colour harmonies and how light plays and creates interesting shadow shapes. Recently her work has included gold leaf techniques to express the golden light of sun and moon.
Corrine Rapley lived in The Pilbara, for 15 years with her family, working as a casual art lecturer at Pilbara TAFE and setting up Pebble Mouse Studio Art Gallery, Tom Price.
An active exhibiting artist in NW art awards, winning Cossack Art Awards, Watercolour- Pilbara Landscape section, in 2002, before travelling Australia, 2008/2009.
Since settling at Mandurah WA in 2010, the artist works casually for Jacksons Drawing Supplies, where her experience and knowledge about artists materials and products, colour mixing theory, and network connections with the local arts community is appreciated by local artists.
Following a 12-month studio residency, in 2015 at Contemporary Art Spaces Mandurah, the City of Mandurah acquired an artwork for the city’s art collection, from her first solo exhibition themed Whispers on the Wind and Water, 2016.
In 2021 Corrine held her second solo exhibition – Waterviews, at Gallows Gallery, Mosman Park WA, followed by another solo exhibition at Mandurah Performing Art Centre in that year.
A new body of work about light source and light effects within the landscape was produced for her fourth solo exhibition – “Impressions of Light,” at Lost Eden Creative, Dwellingup WA in April/May 2023.
With an artistic practice spanning over 30 years, Corrine has continued to take part in group exhibitions, gained accolades in art awards, completed private commissions, and has artwork in local, national, and international collections.
Corrine is a member of Western Australian Society of Arts, Mandurah Plein Air Artists Inc., and Portrait Group Mandurah.
