If you put it out there, sometimes…..

We are living in unique times. The normal parameters we were used to are shifting, we are now required to be flexible and shift with the changed parameters of life as a consequence of Covid19 to be able to grow and prosper in the new world order. And so I disappear into the studio and quietly in my corner and create my own magical world on the canvas, listen to music and do exactly what my muse tells me. And I put it out there. Thinking because I’m creating work in isolation it is not seen. But there is the wonderful communicative power and generosity of others.

I put my ‘Covid19 exhibition’ out into space and I received an email from Mia on behalf of Julie Chambers Director of The Art Vault, Mildura

“I had a really lovely conversation with Julie today about possibly exhibiting some of your new “Corona” works in our gallery…. Julie suggested that I get in touch with a proposal for you to have an exhibition in our small gallery space.  Fortunately we have a gap from Wednesday 11th Nov – Monday 7th Dec …..”

The Art Vault has a special place in my heart. I explored the Mallee, my Mother’s country, while on residencies at the Art Vault. They invited me to have exhibitions. The staff became friends during my times spent there. So in answer to the question of an exhibition I said ‘yes’.

For this exhibition I’ll be freighting the work to The Art Vault, I usually take a road trip with the paintings. We’re considering holding a companion studio exhibition at the same time with larger works at my studio in Wentworth Falls.  You are invited. We think we could have a joint zoom opening. All work in the studio exhibition will be online and available for purchase through theloadedbrush.com.au and The Art Vault.

‘Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.’ quote attributed to Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. Let’s all do that!
