Look Right Through
Felicity Breen and Amanda Lin
19 January to 24 February 2013
Having been friends since childhood and now both arts practitioners, Felicity Breen and Amanda Lin look at the parallel experiences of a lifelong friendship. Drawing from individual perspectives and attitudes to life they investigate the commonalities and differences within a friendship.
Felicity Breen describes her artistic practice as a way of making personal sense of the patterns, inconsistencies, and mysteries of the world. In this exhibition she is showing series of prints on paper inspired by open and untamed landscapes. Her love of printmaking comes from the surprise of pulling a print and the myriad of technical and artistic responses that are possible at every step.
Amanda Lins art practice explores ways in which humans interact with their natural and built environments. In this exhibition she has created shelters for the human form that map boundaries and relationships between personal space and our surroundings. Distributed through the gallery space, Amandas sculptural work is constructed from a range of media including textiles, paper, timber, plastic and cardboard. Visitors will be encouraged to enter some of the sculptures and view the exhibition from inside the work.
Felicity Breen will give a floor talk on her work and the etching process on Sunday, 17th February 2013 at 1pm.
Throughout the duration of the exhibition you can come help build one of the large textile shelters. Amanda Lin will be available to demonstrate the weaving technique she uses on the following dates:
19 January 2013, 1.00pm to 3.00pm
2 February 2013, 1.00pm to 3.00pm
9 February 2013, 1.00pm to 3.00pm
and before Felicity's talk on the 17 February 2013.
