OUTSIDE THE LINE | 8 OCT - 18 NOV | BURRINJA CULTURAL CENTRE | event
The opening event of 'Outside The Line' provided the opportunity to speak about the body of work, both in terms of the collection of paintings and the sculptural element in the 'art to wear'. Brought to life by three young women, Sophie Coombes, Olivia Moon and Melis Layik, each dress represented a character from 'Alice in Wonderland' and 'Alice through the Looking Glass'. Sophie represented Alice in Wonderland, Olivia portrayed The Red Queen and The Queen of Hearts was brought to life by Melis. These dresses provides a another dimension to the very essence of this body of work. Living, moving art transcends the two-dimensional confines of the canvas, embodying the idea that art isn't just something to be admired from afar.
The intention is to bridge the gap between the abstract and the tangible by allowing us to step into the world of these beloved characters, and become part of their whimsical stories, and to bring to life the nostalgic echoes of our own childhood imaginations.
