Summary This artwork is a paitning which was accepted for exhibition in the Art for Wellbeing 2016 Queenscliff Vic., which was curated by the CENTRE FOR THEOLOGY & MINISTRY, Parkville. The Exhibition ran from 29 April to 27 May 2016.
Notes The artwork was accompanied by this artist's statement:Artist’s statement: My younger sister, who died in 2014, was a beautiful, intelligent and creative women but also a troubled soul. She loved the sea and often collected shells. When she died we found a box of them, carefully wrapped, among her things. The painting shows one of them, an abalone shell, as if in flight above the ocean. To me, this symbolises my sister’s spirit, and the peace and freedom I hope she has found beyond this life. It is my attempt to use the practice of art to grieve, but also to create some beauty in her memory. Artist bio: Richard Evans was born in 1968. He is a criminology lecturer, historian and occasional songwriter. He lives in Ocean Grove, with his wife and two children. He has contributed sculptures and paintings to several exhibitions in the past decade.
