LEGACY Exhibition - Artist in Conversation

LEGACY : Artist in Conversation

Available from 5pm, Thursday 24 September 2020

At 6pm on Thursday 24 September we’ll be releasing a video of exhibiting local artists Michelle Ripari and Emmet Davies in conversation with Wyndham Art Gallery co-curator Caroline Esbenshade.

Both pencil artists, Emmet Davies and Michelle Ripari took on the challenge of creating an A) sized portrait for this exhibition. Given their mediums, graphite and coloured pencil respectively, their creative process is laborious and taking on such a large format was no small feat.

In this conversation they’ll discuss their creative practice, including the experience of shifting the scale of their work, and unpack what ‘legacy’ means to each of them and how that informed the self-portraits created for this exhibition.
