Life, landscape, we move through both. As you move through this collection of paintings consider for a moment life, your life. What are the things you have been told?

This exhibition sets the challenge to the artist of creating 3 pieces of related work in three different forms. One form is to be a wall hanging, the second a 3D vessel or object while the third is left to the artist’s creativity. Each artist has selected their own theme within this framework to explore an area that in some way has touched their lives. A Group exhibition held in 2012 with the Reddy Arts Textile Group.
The Dress is a universal theme and links our existence as humans to our everyday experiences, both past and present. We each have a desire to explore our own personal response to this theme. “The Dress”, has presented us with a diverse range of inspiration.

This group exhibition was held in 2012 and this gallery contains my works from it.
