OUTSIDE THE LINE | 8 OCT - 18 NOV | BURRINJA CULTURAL CENTRE | concept

 

The title of this exhibition - Outside the Line - is in part a response to a time when the young child is told not to colour outside the line. It is a common remark that can squash the child’s natural curiosity and stop the imagination from finding its own lines and shapes, both in terms of art and life. AND a response to the child that ignores that direction and does so anyway!

Outside the Line is an introspective body of work that embarks on an ontological journey, delving into the essence of abstract concepts and their profound connections to childhood memories and experiences. Through vibrant and evocative abstract expressions, this collection invites viewers to explore the blurred boundaries between reality and imagination.

Drawing inspiration from my own recollections of a carefree childhood, the paintings encapsulate the essence of innocent wonder, nostalgia, and joy. Each stroke of colour and texture becomes a visual ode to the emotions and impressions imprinted upon my mind as a child.

As I navigate the abstract realm, I endeavour to unravel the nature of being and existence through the lens of introspection and childhood memory.These paintings become portals to the deeper layers of the child's mind allowing one to ponder the very fabric of reality and our place within it. Outside the Line serves as a reminder that our childhood memories, with their unbridled creativity and imagination, continue to shape our understanding of the world and leave lasting imprints on our life journey.
