Creating an image that ensures people will ‘look’ and ‘see’ what it is all about has changed greatly throughout history, and is harder than it may seem. Having people react by looking at first is the objective. Then it is all about each individual’ reaction. Images in this show reflect changing times, attitudes, philosophies, curiosity and the concerns of society either with self image or the world around them.
The six artists chosen each demonstrated exceptional skill with their paint medium. They are showcasing the talent of emerging Australian artists. An exhibition of their works will take place at the gallery 27 September – 9th October, 2014 – Lethbridge Gallery, Latrobe Terrace, Paddington.
