ARTIST Lorraine Corker expects to spark plenty of discussion during her exhibition at Joondalup Art Gallery.

Corker has a background in performance art, which is reflected in her drawings, paintings and archival prints.

“My work tries to promote curiosity and encourages viewers to question the work,” she said.

She will be working on new pieces throughout the exhibition so people can follow their progress and has created three large collage drawings that can be viewed from the outside laneway.

“A painted window will initially obscure the view into the gallery but gradually over the weeks the paint will be artfully removed allowing glimpses into the exhibition,” she said.

Corker said her art would intrigue people.

“It is not unusual with my work to find viewers discussing, sometimes quite energetically about what they think the work is about,” she said.

“Often reading their own narratives into it the work, which is exactly what it is meant to do.”

The exhibition runs until May 1, with meetings available with the artist this Sunday from 10am-5pm.
