The Tasmanian Guitar Trio
The Tasmanian Guitar Trio is the flagship ensemble of the Tasmanian Guitar Studio,
directed by ARIA Award Winner Gareth Koch.
Gareth is a graduate of the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, the Royal Madrid
Conservatorium and the prestigious Academy of Music in Vienna. He holds Bachelor
Degrees, Diplomas and a Doctorate in Music. He has recorded multiple best-selling
CDs for ABC Classics, with over 30 years experience lecturing, recording and
performing throughout Europe, Northern America, Asia and Australia.
Comprising the versatile talents of Darcy O'Malley and Oliver Marshall, both senior
students within Gareth's teaching studio, the Tasmanian Guitar Trio continues to
enthral audiences through radio broadcasts and performances. Darcy is an
accomplished classical trumpeter and blues guitarist, while Oliver is active as an
electric guitarist and bassist within the contemporary music genre.
The Tasmanian Guitar Trio is characterised by a sense of spontaneity, bold
exploration across musical boundaries and its signature sound. The trio performs on
classical and flamenco guitars.
My artwork is ever evolving, resulting in fluid linear strokes with each colour unique and individual to the composition of the work, the combination of each unique stroke building the image. I progress through shades to provide the illusion of blended colour, thus simplifying the environment to basic form. Much of the resulting brushwork represents the world we move through, enhancing the natural environment with bold colour which draws me deeper into the canvas, searching the palate for the perfect hues.
Painting is my conduit to peace and harmony, stepping away from the illusions and delusions of everyday life to be in the moment, to be the brush, to be the paint and to be the painting.
