Where the Wild Birds Are by Sobrane
13 June - 2 July
Internationally acclaimed Broome based artist, Sobrane regularly holds exhibitions around Australia and overseas. Apart from her studio based works, she also works on large-scale murals and recently completed a 30-metre wall in Soriano Nel Cimino, as her third project on mural painting in Italy. In Where The Wild Birds Are, she features a series of mixed media artworks on canvas as a response to her passion for wildlife in Australia and around the globe, particularly fresh from her recent adventures in Tanzania. In this series, Sobrane continues her focus on birds and other wildlife as subject matters through her bold strokes that evokes an approach to pop art. Her exploration of medium parallels the materials found in everyday life, including the frequent use of blended charcoal, spray paint, coffee and pastels. These are employed together to create a fusion of painting, drawing, spraying, lines and dots marking on canvas. Running throughout her work is a strong intent to break through the confines of societal expectations and everydayness.
“Creating is like breathing to me. There isn’t a single moment in my day where my creative mind isn’t whirring away… Art as in life is an adventure!” – Sobrane
