People who have saved this event:


The paintings utilize a technique Poonawalla first learned from Vazifdar where the paints are mixed directly on the canvas creating a thick impasto style which is carved into with a ruler resulting in a textured effect which is impossible to copy.


Born Free presents 25 new works which explore the fragility and power of nature. A series of animal portraits highlight the variance of life from the strength of the bull to the fragility and beauty of the butterfly. The works are superimposed with a mapped digital projection allowing them to run off the canvas and into the gallery and ‘our’ world. By forcing the artwork beyond the canvas and into the gallery it asks the viewer to address their own relationship with these animals.
