Venus Rising: Paintings and Drawings Opening Reception

Hosted by Il Centro Italian Cultural Centre
Tuesday, January 23, 2018
7 PM - 9 PM

Venus Rising

There are certain works of art that reach such a level of fame that they become an archetypal reference point or even a catalyst for our meditations on the mysteries of human existence. Botticelli’s Birth of Venus (or Venus Rising) c. 1480 is one such painting. In this work the viewer becomes a witness to the birth of Venus. In this exhibition 14 artists study and reinterpret this painting. For 15 months these artists have contemplated, examined and recast this monumental artistic achievement. In the process they have reflected deeply on its impact on the history of art, feminism, and popular culture. How has this painting shaped our notions of physical beauty, they ask?

The exhibition’s opening night will be held within the museum from 7pm to 9pm, where light refreshments will be served.

Admission to this event is free.

Exciting news!!!

I'm so grateful and honoured to receive a grant from The Fund for the Arts on the North Shore (FANS). It's towards 'Artistic Production' – creating a body of large-scale figurative work for a solo show. It's an exciting next step in my artistic career, and to receive their support and encouragement is incredible!

Their Fundraiser's this Friday, November 4, 2016!

100 Days of Ocean!!!!

My ‘100 Days of Ocean’ Creative Challenge is complete! 100 Days is a long time to stick to something... but the length of time instills habit and pushes creativity and experimentation.

And sharing the process makes it all the more real... Thank you for following along and for all your support, inspiration and encouragement!!

After one big hiccup pretty late in the game, I got back to it, saw through the goal and the creative process. I expanded my range, learned new techniques and created pieces I didn’t think possible in a short time frame on a mostly daily basis.

A project like this is visual proof you can achieve something big by doing something small everyday.
