‘Affinity’ at Chrissie Cotter Gallery
Friday, 6 September 2019
A collection of small mixed media works using clay, embroidery and watercolour features at the next exhibition at Chrissie Cotter Gallery.
Artist Amanda Humphries said the works “are inspired by recent sci-fi and the arts writings”.
These include Making Worlds: Art and Science by Amelia Bariken and Helen Hughes, and Maurizio Bettini’s book The Portrait of the Lover.
Making Worlds is a collection of essays by artists, curators, art historians and writers who are self-confessed science fiction fans.
The Portrait of the Lover is an examination of the surprising number of stories from antiquity about people who fall in love with statues or paintings.
‘Affinity’ explores “ideas of relationships at a time when we navigate our place in a dual world of virtual and physical realities,” Amanda said.
‘Affinity’ is at Chrissie Cotter Gallery, Pidcock Street, Camperdown.
Opening: Saturday, 14 September, 2pm-4pm.
Exhibition dates: 11-22 September, Thursday to Sunday, 11am-4pm
