Last Saturday I along with my hubby and two friends from Leongatha went along to Julie Andrews’ exhibition in Chancery Lane.
As well as writing a piece about this space for Weekend Notes ( see http://www.weekendnotes.com/chancery-lane-art-space/) I wanted to find out a little more about the why and wherefore of the wall art.
Julie kindly gave me her artist statement… ‘the work is about ‘in-between’ spaces the I am drawn to explore; the liminal, a threshold, a gap, between dichotomies, dualistic oppositions and either/or thinking. in both art theories and practice.
‘ The work is based on a series of paintings called trance- scapes that explore the in-between space – ‘to be there but not be there’ as an investigation into the psychological terrain of the liminal: the everyday and a place for remembering, noticing, daydreaming, possibilities and imagining. My work is often abstract and includes large gestural marks, stenciled shapes and floating circles to suggest a portal for reflection and contemplation.’
