These two artworks are ready to head off to an exhibition with this painting.It is one of my all time favourite exhibitions, held in my old home town Toowoomba. Its one of the few artshows I know of locally that seeks out and encourages art outside of the square of mainstream art. Over the time that I've been exhibiting I've seen some amazing pieces. The ones that come to mind... a decorated porcelain toilet by Mary Kate Khoo, stenciled letters on a series of squash racquets and a hanging lampshade made from dried strawberry slices stitched together (sorry I don't recall the last 2 artists)
I feel there is a sort of acceptance. That painted floral op shop pillowcases, buttons and doilies fit more into the norm with the many other pieces erring on the side of odd.And I love that.
Or maybe its me realising that my creativity isn't that odd after all?
