Animal inside me, an exhibition at Chrissie Cotter Gallery

animalinsidemeAn art technique first developed by post-impressionist artists in the late 1880s will feature at the next Chrissie Cotter Gallery exhibition.

The exhibition, Animal inside me by Zuzu Galova, uses a technique called pointillism – dots for shading and shaping the artwork.

Zuzu then scans the artworks and paints them digitally.

“Once the artwork is done, I print the limited number of artworks, which makes them unique – all of them are signed and numbered,” she said.

As to the exhibition theme, Zuzu explains, “My new series is called ‘Horse power’. I play with female identity. Each woman has got something special inside them, pride, stubbornness, power... for me the horse is a symbol of these ‘super-powers’," Zuzu said.

“I believe that all of us have inside an animal, sleeping, shrieking or just waiting for the right moment. We live in a daze, where we are hiding behind some masks, we behave in some way as society expects, but nothing is for real,” she said.

Zuzu is donating one of her artworks to the Cancer Council “for the breast cancer fight. If the artwork is sold, all the money will go to the Cancer Council, she said.

Animal inside me is at Inner West Council’s Chrissie Cotter Gallery in Pidcock Street, Camperdown from Wednesday 24 August – Sunday 4 September.

Opening Wednesday 24 August, 6–8pm.

Gallery opening hours are Thursday to Sunday, 11am–4pm.
