Rona Barugahare is an emerging artist, based in Sydney and working primarily with oil paint. She has always loved bright colours, fuelled by her father’s African heritage and her teenage years spent in tropical Uganda. She has been painting and drawing throughout her life, but recently has focused on abstraction in order to emphasise on light, motion and colour. Rona seeks to employ bold colour contrasts and to create an abstract sense of motion and form, evoking the imagination with an emphasis on emotive painterly techniques and celebrating the natural form of the paint medium.
