New Perspective

 
featuring ManChoi Chow, Mary Lou Hiller, Cathy Pascoe, and Sharl Smith.
The exhibition runs from Tuesday, September 19th to Sunday, November 13th, 2016.
 
 
Whether interpreted as “a point of view” or as “a dimensional illusion”, PERSPECTIVE provides a limitless creative playground for the artistic mind.
 
Photographer ManChoi Chow, acrylic painter Mary Lou Hiller, coloured pencil artist Cathy Pascoe and bead designer Sharl Smith set their sights and skills to the discovery of New Perspectives.
 
 
ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
 
ManChoi Chow: “That speaks to me”, she said upon seeing my art. Through New Perspectives, I hope to explore ways that my photographic art connects with others, to “provoke tiny jubilations” (Roland Barthes, Camera Lucinda, 1980).
 
Mary Lou Hiller works in transparent acrylic layers and a naturalistic style. In all her work colour, design and light are her principal focus. For this show she has chosen humorous, philosophical and special effects approaches to her presentation of New Perspectives.
 
Cathy Pascoe often explores the myriad patterns of light and shadow in her drawings. She usually explores new perspectives through her varied artistic subject matter; however, this time she approaches through a new challenge in light. For this show she has chosen to use different media.
 
Sharl Smith explores the art of bead stitching from a new perspective. In this show she studies the five Platonic solids and other shapes, further indulging her love of geometry and developing the sculptural potential of her chosen medium.
