Still Life -  - Glebe - NSW
The practices of home and everyday life are close to us at a personal level and beyond. They continue to be a source of complex and blurred significance to visual artists, changing our awareness and inspiration as we continue to unpack home’s significance. Referencing home produces an intimate and compelling sense of self and others. Home is a place permeated with human presence, both current and past. The free imagination of the artist enables home to be explored and illuminated as timeless images, not only seen but lived. The meaning of home is fluid. This fluidity includes the personal and emotional responses of the imagination and their context in nature. Visualising not only the subject but the artist’s ideas. Through the interactive processes, the objects confinement is ruptured, creating transformation and change. Still Life (2018) is the result of these processes. Still Life (2018) is a suite of paintings, photographs and sculptures of domestic packaging. The result of the artist’s journey in relation to the homes she has occupied. Some are partially painted in vibrant oils, photographed, enlarged and printed. Some images, glued to 5-ply wooden surfaces, are hard, flat sculptures. Others are soft and flexible, but partially painted again, in rich colours, still revealing previous surfaces to produce net and skin-like images.
