Opening night: Friday 13 October 5.30-7pm
Wentworth Falls artist Sophie Conolly uses techniques which have ‘women’s work’ connotations – sewing, embroidery, papier-mâché – work which has been performed quietly, meditatively and often privately by women over centuries, primarily to mend and repair. Sophie also works quietly and privately - and as her process has evolved, themes have emerged: of childhood loss, emotional isolation and mourning.
In this exhibition, Repaired Relations, the artist draws on past experiences in order to heal personal wounds and find closure - sewing to repair and connect the past to the present; the good memories with the bad.
I hope you can join us for Sophie's exhibition opening.
