'Life on the edge - Caught in the flow' ©2012. Nicola Moss. Acrylic, natural ochre, charcoal frottage, hand cut papers. Collection of Moreton Bay Regional Council.
Last weekend I attended the opening of 'Drawing a line' at Caboolture Regional Art Gallery. The exhibition presents works from the Moreton Bay Regional Council Art Collection featuring drawing as a medium, along with a selection of contemporary drawing works from artists around Australia. I really enjoyed this interesting show as line and various mediums have been interpreted in a broad sense of 'drawing'. From paper embossing, to sculpted ply and all manner of medium in between - biro, pastel, texta, charcoal, frottage, and ink. Artists on show include Lincoln Austin, Arlene Texta Queen, Godwin Bradbeer and Deb Mostert, along with works from the council collection by Carly Scoufos, Sharon Jewell and myself to name a few.
There are a number of artist talks being held in conjunction with the exhibition, Carly Scoufos will speak on the 8th May and I will be speaking about my processes and inspiration on the 29th May, both 10-11am. If you are in the area and feel like coming along it will be lovely to see you.
'Drawing a line' continues till 15th June.
