The Free Space Project is pleased to support an online virtual exhibition by artist Mahlia Amatina. This is the third and final exhibition in the Free Space Project’s commissions for artists to reimagine works into their virtual exhibition space.
After being diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome in 2015, Mahlia was inspired to share the unique sensory experiences of life on the autism spectrum through her art. Working around the theme of neurodiversity, Mahlia has transformed her signature style of abstract colourism into a unique, interactive, multi-sensory experience that invites viewers to engage on a level that works for them.
Mahlia has regularly been awarded Arts Council England (ACE) grants, including the ‘Developing your Creative Practise’ fund, and has been featured as one of the ‘Top 50 Influential Neurodiverse Women’ by Women Beyond the Box.
Join Mahlia on Thursday 22 October from 6-7pm on zoom, where she will be in discussion with gallerist Jennifer Gilbert about her ‘Life on a Spectrum’ virtual exhibition alongside her other projects, and what led her on this incredible creative journey.
