Claremont Paintings

Do you have a special place in your heart for the charm of Claremont?
Maybe you grew up here. Maybe it is where you raised your family.
Maybe this is the place you and your friends got together.

These oil paintings of Claremont capture what a special place it is.

The red roof homes, the old train station and the river just there.
Bring Claremont and those memories close again with an original work of art by Ken Rasmussen.

Village Streets Down to the Water, oil painting by Ken Rasmussen

Village Streets Down To The Water

Oil on Linen Painting
Dimensions 610 × 610 mm
RH71

The higher up you go, the more Claremont sits perched on the river’s edge. The streets all seem to call you down to the water. Each boat is a little dream of freedom and escape. “Run away!” – that’s the invitation. Come and fly on this breeze until you are ready to turn for home again.

This is a painting about living in the city and dreaming of the river. The little boats in the Claremont Bay are each a story of someone who has decided to spend their time on the water. I’m blending the water and the streets. In my dream, our life and our leisure can flow together seamlessly.

Winner: People’s Choice, 2019 Town of Claremont Art Awards In this painting of Claremont, I’ve used colourful rows as metaphors for both houses and people – our community living together, connected and separate. Each person has their jewel-like colour and when you draw together all these colourful individuals, that’s when you get the vibrancy of village life. This is a homage to places created by the striving of individuals who live and work there.

This painting is about Freshwater Bay, while Claremont and the surrounding suburbs cluster around the edge of the waterway like some modern version of a fishing village. I’m having some fun with the details of Claremont. The underpass, the big shops, the old hotel and the railway. I love the Claremont village, and dabbling it with the light, lines and movement. I love this gentle little corner of the world.

This painting is a reflection on that time around four o’clock in the afternoon when the sea breeze stirs up the surface of the river. It’s hot and the roads draw you down to the jetty on the water. You can see the afternoon light catching on the rooftops here and there through the Claremont village.

It’s the end of the day and the streets are quietening down. Out on the river, there are boats scooting along. They are turning for home now after the twilight sail. The cares of the day are whisked away on the breeze.

This is about the last light over Claremont and Freshwater Bay. There are bright flashes as the setting sun hits the rooftops. The river turns to gold and there is time to slow down. For me, this time of the day is about homecoming and reconnecting with the family. It’s about letting go of the day and all its activity. A time for rest and replenishment.

This is a salute to the dear old Claremont Hotel. For a long time its been a place where people could come together. Even as the modern buildings bubble up around her this old lady holds her ground. She is the charm of old Claremont lending soul to the new.

It is mid-afternoon and the sea breeze brings the city to life. There’s movement in the treetops. Somewhere close by a beach is waiting for us.
