Line Shape Form

Line  Shape Form an exciting exhibition by three vibrant female artists from the region showcase their work during the Wine festival time in Mudgee.

The exhibition was opened by renowned textile artist Jan Irvine Nealie. Jan is a great supporter of the arts and offered a very comprehensive and generous assessment of the work and encouraged the audience to stop, be still and to look into each work, ensuring that the joyous process of creating art is never undervalued.


Laura, Sarah, Sam & Jan Irvine Nealie

Sarah Robinson, Samantha Brown & Laura Burghaus

Exhibition runs from 22nd August – 24th September 2012


Opening night 22nd August at Fairview ArtSpace

Sarah Robinson won the Fairview ArtSpace cash prize & exhibition opportunity at Art UnLimited Dunedoo 2011 and finally the time has come to exhibit her contemporary work at the ArtSpace. Sarah has engaged two of her colleagues to exhibit with her. The combination of these artists’ work will be extraordinary.

Sarah uses gauche, ink & biro as her preferred mediums. They allow her to mix fine sharp lines, shape and form with textural colour components.  Using these techniques the viewer is drawn in to the work and encouraged to engage with the spirit of the journey. Her contemporary images are exciting and compelling.

Samantha Brown will present a series of 10 photographs of the human form

Sam decided to be involved in this exhibition to push her creative boundaries and break away from the more formal & structured elements of wedding photography.

“I wanted to express & capture a darker side of my black and white photography.  I shot in the first morning light and at dusk.  No flash was used as I wanted to use the natural light to see how it interacted with the human body”.

Laura Burghaus  I am a dress maker by trade so the pieces that I have chosen, used fabric as my canvas and the human body as my medium to print on to the fabric. The pieces I have create are inspired and an homage to Yves Klein.
