ART IN­SPIRED BY IN­DIA’S PALETTE

Cockburn Gazette - - LIFESTYLE -

SOME­TIMES an artist needs to go be­yond what they know and ex­pe­ri­ence ev­ery day to get the big­gest in­spi­ra­tion for their work.

For 12 WA women, this in­volved a trip to In­dia for a sketch­ing tour to ex­plore the sights, sounds and ex­pe­ri­ences of an­other coun­try.

The art and mem­o­ries cre­ated on this trip are the in­spi­ra­tion for a new ex­hi­bi­tion on dis­play at the Moores Build­ing Con­tem­po­rary Art Gallery.

Fre­man­tle artist Dawn Meader said it had proved to be an amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

“In­dia has seeped into the souls of the women and out into their art,” she said.

“Their ex­pe­ri­ences, which were pho­tographed and doc­u­mented in their sketch­books, have be­come the in­spi­ra­tion for a col­lec­tion of works that will en­com­pass paint­ing, mixed me­dia, print mak­ing and pho­tog­ra­phy.”

The Spirit of Ra­jasthan ex­hi­bi­tion is at the Moores Build­ing Con­tem­po­rary Art Gallery un­til Septem­ber 3. Visit www.dawn­meader.com.
