Good evening fellow viewers, sorry for the lack of update exam week is a busy week indeed. Just wanted to get the blog up to date with my artwork which has been recently selected for the SACE art show at the Light Square Gallery in Adelaide, further notice of the Shows exhibition dates will be made known for all to visit! (Feel free to message is anyone would like to commission a piece of artwork like this, includes framing and all, great for children’s rooms and display)
The story features a girl who runs away from the pressures, issues and expectations of society and from those within her life. Many can relate to how overwhelming these issues may be, from body image, self esteem, expectations of being smart, fitting into a crowd and facing ourselves sometimes the harshest critic of all. Art was always my escape, my dream land, by safe haven, and I hope that you all can reach out to me or others when needed because sometimes life can be overwhelming, especially within our own minds. Have a good evening and please enjoy.
This artwork has been inspired by the song ‘Always running out of time’ by Motion City Soundtrack please have a listen. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ffaDPNgeJ_M
