This exhibition featured several forms of Art - Painting. Embroidery. Sculpting. Video. Doll Making. Collage. In other words, Adrienne Doig works in many mediums.
One wall of the Gallery was devoted to smallish paintings on cardboard of various things that have happened to her and sees her in various situations both every day and important. Mundane and significant. When you study this wall, you think that she must have just about exhausted all that has happened to her, but in reality, it probably only just scratches the surface and there are much more paintings to be done before she is finished with this project.
Her exhibition has the title It's All About Me and Adrienne freely admits that this is what her work is all about. It’s all about her.
The ultimate outcome is that she is assembling her biography through Art.
Adrienne grew up in Wangaratta. So, we can claim her as a semi local.
Join us at the Benalla Art Gallery on Monday 2 May at 10 am for an introduction to the new exhibition, ACTS I-VII, by members of the Oculi Collective. Oculi, a collective of 18 fine-art and documentary photographers, has been the leading influence in photographic documentary practice in Australia since 2000.
