The creativity of six local artists has merged to form a new collaborative exhibition.
The exhibition will showcase six works by artists Lorraine Maddigan, Art Shed co-founder Tammey McAllan, Marie Low, Lauren Mackley, Renee Horne and Jade Punch. The concept was brought to life by Ms Mackley whose practicing artist name is Moral Lackley.
“The idea was to provide a project of true collaboration of artists’ practices and introduce a point of discipline in artists art making processors,” Ms Mackley said in August.
“This has been an idea I have had for a longtime for audiences to enjoy an artwork from more than one artist within one artwork.
“The artworks take on a life of their own and develop a new narrative with every artist’s addition.”
Ms Mackley said it was great to see the artists become “more confident” in their art practices over the months.
“I think that’s the best outcome you can have,” she said.
“It’s interesting to see how people approach things.”
Many of the artists said it was a fun project, including Jade Punch who said she “absolutely loved it”.
“I actually found it was really good to challenge myself because if you’re just working with a blank canvas, you can do whatever you want but if you get something with a different style, you have to really think about what you’re going to do,” she said.
Tammey McAllan said she found it an interesting process because each of the artists had “such different styles”, and the project had inspired her to expand her colour palette.
