Melbourne Printmaker Lisa Sewards has a new body of work that hints upon the Snow Globe, whimsical objects of memory, glass domes usually encasing miniaturized scenes often with a glittering landscape or figure. Reminiscent of the traditional Snow Globe the Artists' new tondo shaped etchings are both abstract and reflections of place and time, and recall childhood, a memory or a feeling.
Sewards recurrent motif of the parachute theme continues to weave through some of these new works on paper and sculptural pieces that are currently on exhibition this month in regional Victoria at Queenscliff Gallery. Sewards is one of three artists to feature in their focus exhibition that explores the notion of identity through the prism of space and time. Her works will feature alongside those of Megan McPherson and Andrew Weatherhill. During the current Victorian restrictions this exhibition can be viewed as a cyber-exhibition via the Gallery's online virtual interactive software.
The exhibition runs 10-27 September with a physical official closing event on Sept 27 subject to restrictions. An online personal walk through of the exhibition is also available by contacting the Gallery Directors.
