I’m very excited to be holding a studio exhibition with Sona Babajanyan in our beautiful studio house in Bowen Hills!!
The show will feature my work done since April 2015 exploring sleep, specifically paintings of sleeping acrobats and dancers, and Sona’s works relating to sleep and dreams.
I am loving so many aspects of this series! From the simple contrast presented by working with highly active people in repose, to the discussion of their perception of sleep.. I feel that this is the beginning of an ongoing project, spanning several years..!
The exhibition will be at our studio in Bowen Hills on the evening of August 12th, 2016.
Please email me if you would like to receive an invitation to our show.
