Torn pa­per paint­ing ex­hibit

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

MT PERRY Arts Group will be pre­sent­ing Who’s Noc­tur­nal, a torn pa­per paint­ing and pa­per mache sculp­ture ex­hi­bi­tion of noc­tur­nal crea­tures fea­tur­ing the work of Aus­tralian artist Sue Daw.

Sue’s first ex­hi­bi­tion was at the age of 14, at which paint­ings were se­lected for an in­ter­na­tional ex­hi­bi­tion.

Over the years Sue has held many group and solo ex­hi­bi­tions through­out the North­ern Ter­ri­tory and Queens­land.

To­day, Sue’s art­work sells all over the world.

The self-taught artist said she had al­ways dab­bled in torn pa­per paint­ings.

“Mak­ing my own pa­per and by build­ing up lay­ers of paint has al­lowed me to cre­ate the most won­der­ful ef­fects in depth,” she said.

“Work­ing with all medi­ums, my in­spi­ra­tion comes from the na­ture and wildlife of our beau­ti­ful coun­try, Australia.”

Trav­el­ling all over the North­ern Ter­ri­tory in the 1960s and 1970s, Sue lived in some very re­mote places.

She was an ac­tive mem­ber of North­ern Ter­ri­tory Arts un­til 2001.

Who’s Noc­tur­nal will run from May 26 un­til July 4. Open­ing times are Tues­day and Fri­day, 9am–12pm, Wed­nes­day and Thurs­day, 1–4pm. Other times by ap­point­ment – please phone 0407 699 894.
