Crystallise

young-dsc_0231

Crystallise brings together the artistic expression of Christine Young and Margaret Kelly artistic and social concerns with imaginative, visual and social cognition and how these forces crystallise as experience in the external world.

Lit by crystal, Christine’s peacocks and lyrebirds, take flights of fanciful imagination to of irrealis, a place of possibility where the horizon might meet the sea or the fire touches the earth.

Margaret’s work, like a meditation, offers the viewer white space and the chance to quietly process the intensity of the juxtaposition of colours and patterns in one section of the collage.  Black and white ink lines wrap around the concentration of concrete forms and intrudes into these white shapes, reflecting the tension between meditation and our busy lives.
