Art, Not Apart
Art, Not Apart is Canberra’s premier arts festival, featuring exhibitions, performance art, live music, installations and street food. The event is based throughout the NewActon Precinct, West Basin, the National Film and Sound Archives. I have exhibited work and performed live art during the 2014 and 2016 festivals.
In 2014, I exhibited a series of large, vibrant pastel portraits in the A. Baker Lounge. I also produced a series of live pastel portraits in the adjourning courtyard outside.
In 2016, I coordinated a live art project titled ‘The Spaces Between’ at Westside Acton Park, featuring Paul Summerfield and Juliette Dudley. This combined digital and analogue; using traditional materials on a fabricated surface. Each piece utilised a multi-layered sculptural canvas, with digital artists returning to more conventional methods by using acrylic paints to bring their works to life.
