I am spending a couple of hours each day at my art exhibition “Entranced”. In this exhibition I have several works from the past five years as well as a series of 2017 drawings.
While at the gallery I am listening to the opinions of visitors. What I am hearing is that many people prefer drawings with a more interpretive impressionistic bent than the detail-filled sharply focused pieces. Indeed, the first to sell at the opening was “Daydream” and many visitors have admired this piece and others like it.
I am happy that visitors are responsive to the impressionistic work because this is a type of drawing I am enthusiastic about as well. After years of detailed work, it is a pleasure to work in a looser interpretative style.
Kidogo Arthouse (Bathers Beach, Fremantle) is open from 11 – 4 Tuesday to Sunday (but closed on Sunday 17 September) until September 20. I am on site from 11 until 1. I am giving a talk on Saturday 16th at 2 pm. All welcome.
