Exhibition opens Thursday April 15th
April 15th – 29th⠀⠀
Join us in the gallery for morning tea with Angela on Saturday April 17th, 11.30am – 12.30pm⠀⠀
Flights of Fancy is an exhibition monotypes and paintings referencing the natural environment and the inner landscapes of the mind, of the imagination and of dreams. ⠀⠀
These works are a visceral response to a harsh yet beautiful landscape. Angela’s work has always reflected the inner psychological world just as it reflects aspects of the physical world.
The interplay between these two worlds provides the stimulus for much of her creative energy and output. The distinctive marks which inhabit the surface of the works become the visual language through which Angela hopes to create yet another world which invites the viewer to empathise or re-imagine and feel. The ambient stillness is interrupted with the introduction of birds and creatures which swoop, dive, glide and hover, sometimes ominously, over the imagined landscape to bring ‘a lightness of being’ to the otherwise challenging environment.⠀⠀
