Brisbane artist Joanna Davies will showcase her new collection Sepia from November 2 to 6, 2016 at the Percolator Gallery in Paddington.
The collection was inspired by her childhood in Brookfield and a photograph of a ‘bucket of squid’ from a friend’s recent fishing trip. Rendered in monochrome and vivid tones, Sepia is a collection of her newest and most inspired works. Drawing on the verdant scenery that surrounded her on her new block of land, groups of children, livestock and sunny days began to take shape and the neutral tones proved emotive which gave the works a reminiscent tone of days gone by and created an unexpected cohesive collection.
After struggling to name the exhibition, Joanna decided to group her works under the tonal umbrella of Sepia, which to her surprise means ‘a reddish-brown colour associated particularly with monochrome photos or a blackish fluid secreted by a cuttlefish’.Viewing and sales of the exhibition begin on Wednesday November 2, from 10am to 4pm.
There is also an opportunity to meet Joanna herself on Friday November 4 at 5.30pm. For more information click here.
