What: On exhibition in the Foyer Exhibition Space @ Mornington Library
SABRA LAZARUS 27 Nov – 29 Jan 2016
I’m a local artist, living on the Mornington Peninsula. Family, friends and playing in the sea (summer only!) – heaven on a stick. Here on the coast, I spend a lot of time roaming around at Point Nepean, on the back beach and up and down the streets of Sorrento, looking, listening and chatting – there’s a lot going on.
This is the stuff of my paintings, the day-to-day adventure of living. My works are a visual take on the dialogue between what I see and what I feel. I spend a lot of time pondering different ways of being and living, what we do and why?
The works are a take on the extraordinary often hidden in the ordinary. I paint for the joy of painting, for the challenge of getting what’s in my head onto canvas, sharing a story, and expressing a “what’s not to like” philosophy of life – I see a lot of humour in the business of living.
I paint in acrylics because they dry fast and I love to paint flat out.
