'Home - La Maison' - An Online Exhibition of new works by Gina Kalabishis

These works were intended to have been created for the group exhibition that was going to be shown on Saturday 9 May at 6pm at the Ancienne Eglise St, Laurent, Eygalieres, France concluding on Saturday 30 May 2020.

 

This suite of eight new ink and gouache on watercolour paper artworks are a combination of Australian and French symbols of flora and fauna with a culinary mix of produce from the south of France, the Saint-Remy-de-Provence,

Eygalieres and Molleges, are small communities in the Bouches-du-Rhône, southern France. These delicate ikebana free styled arrangements speak of and capture these beautiful areas as a safe haven.

This is a visual emotive recording though art of a personal nature that is potent in its tragic timing. It's subject matter of birds in the safety of the trees they inhabit, is symbolic of our 'Home- La Maison' a safe refuge for humanity.

The potent beauty of drawing, the emotive nature and gastronomic produce of Australia and France reaches out  to a current important online audience referencing the COVID_19 symbology of home isolation. 

I gratefully acknowledge Nicky Ginsberg Director at NG Art Residency, France for the opportunity to come for such a short and unfortunatley interrupted so tragically, I hope to return to continue my residency one day.
