On top of amateur photography and personal travel, I love art. Going to exhibitions. Seeking out inspiration. Creating. But I am a stylistically diverse and rather confused amateur artist. I can’t choose exactly what type of artwork or medium I want to be known for. And so I dabble in a little bit of everything – drawing (charcoal, pencil, pen), watercolor, multimedia, acrylics and painting, pastels.
I also haven’t quite had the chance to put together the artsy portfolio of my works that I had dreamed of…but in the interim, if you want to check out my works, take a look at the Australian blog “The Near and The Elsewhere” which wrote up a piece on the collaborative exhibition I was part of in 2012, “Twisting the Lilac Stalks” at the gaffa gallery in Sydney, Australia.
A few fun shots from the curating and installation process – a flurry of activity to complete it all in one day! Photos courtesy of 2 of the other artists, Sophie and Jessica, and preparation included the other 3rd collaborative artist, another Soph (as well as my Dad and the twins’ father that you see in the background)…it was a full collaborative effort!
Enjoy the art exhibition space shown here – the light and darkness of the walls vs the floor – the figurative curves of the artworks – the images and the imagination of the installation. The doors and framing the artworks in door frames. The windows and views to artworks. The geometry and perspective. The warehouse emerging artist feel. It is not so much about the actual artworks in these photos (more on that later!) but more about the actual space and its own artistry which can be enjoyed as part of the viewing of art.
I highly recommend arranging your own exhibition to share your inspiration with the world – your talents – your passions. It was a great experience. 🙂
Once again, all images in this post are not my photography but the work of 2 other collaborating artists, Jessica and Soph B! Thank you!
