The heart of the centre

This is the name for painter Faye De Pasquale's exhibition which opened last Wednesday at The Light Factory Gallery in Eltham and runs until Sunday 3 August.  Faye has exhibited extensively over the past 40 years, having held solo and group exhibitions and is the recipient of many awards.  Her work features in several private and public collections.  Most of the works in The heart of the centre take inspiration from the vibrant colour and seductive patterns of the Australian outback.

Showing in tandem with Faye is Janette Thompson's exhibition Moving through time, no way back - a series depicting images of birds which have been reinvented and appropriated such as her Bluebird print which is based on the 'cassowary' series.  Colours are strong and imagined, built up on heavy Arches Aquarelle 356 gsm paper, using mostly Derwent coloured pencils and graphite.  The gallery is open Wed - Sun 11.30 am - 4.30 pm.

Also opening tonight is Natalie Ryan's Mortem in Imagine exhibition at LUMA - one not for the faint hearted with some fairly confronting images looking at both the human and animal cadaver throughout western culture, ranging from museum displays to bereavement mementos.  The show runs until 5 September with the museum open Mon - Fri 10 am - 5 pm.

Entry for all exhibitions is free.  We're now into the second half of Winter, which means we're getting closer to Spring!  I'll be back with more later this week.
