Artist with imagination showing at BRAG
BUNDABERG Regional Art Gallery (BRAG) is delighted to present a solo exhibition by established Brisbane artist, Carolyn V Watson.
Watson's exhibition, all glory is fleeting (memory and hand) presents a combination of sculpture and drawings and will be open to the public today until January.
The works in this exhibition have been especially created by Watson for BRAG.
Over the last 18 months, she has spent countless hours preparing her pieces.
In particular, Watson's imaginative animal sculptures are all made by hand using a huge variety of recycled materials including bone, leather, cloth, charcoal, timber and polymer clay.
As well as her sculptures, Watson's exhibition includes ten drawings on linen which connect to the themes and figures of her sculptures.
As an artist Watson is driven to play and experiment with materials and forms.
Visitors will be able to get up and close with Watson's work and to marvel at the hand-stitched and moulded sculptures, together with her paintings.
Bundaberg Regional Galleries Exhibitions Officer, Trudie Leigo, said Watson's work was both surprising and delightful.
"The exhibition will definitely appeal to visitors of all ages as they engage with Carolyn's artistic creativity," she said.
Watson is spending the week in Bundaberg and is keen to see how visitors respond to her work.
"My sculptures and paintings always evoke a range of emotions and responses. It can be a little confronting at first, but ultimately most people find it intriguing," Watson said.
The official opening for all glory is fleeting (memory and hand) is this Friday, October 30 at 5:30pm in Gallery Two at BRAG.
As part of the opening, Watson will speak about her exhibition, giving art lovers the opportunity to gain a better understanding of her works. Complimentary drinks and light refreshments will be provided and everyone is welcome to come along to this free event.
