THEY say to create art is to meet the desire to express oneself.
SubiARTco artists new exhibit Desirables will be an expression of what we long for amidst living in the 21st century.
“There is this desire for art in our lives – we have lost track of face to face communication these days, as a lot of things are online and mass produced,” artist Narelle Manser-Smith said.
The West Leederville resident has been a full time artist for 12 years.
Manser-Smith is one of ten artists, alongside Scarborough resident Lindy Midalia and Bayswater resident Shirley Winstanley, who will have six pieces of original art on display at SubiARTco’s space along Sheen Street from May 17.
“I’ve spent a lot of time creating art and murals with children,” she said.
“I specialise in acrylic on canvas, I love abstract, water and anything with texture and movement.”
A total of 70 original pieces will be up for purchase ranging from $500 to $10,000 when the ongoing exhibit launches in May.
“I have a womanly theme throughout my pieces – I’ve created an abstract nude, an angel and a woman’s head so it’s quite a range,” Manser-Smith said.
The exhibit will run Thursdays to Saturdays from 11am to 2pm.
