Exhibition Opening: Lisa Axiotis – Full Circle

Exhibition and Shows

23 Nov 2019

November 2012: I married my prince charming on the beautiful grounds of Montsalvat

November 2018: My prince charming abandoned me

November 2019: I am exhibiting the pain of my less-than-happy ending, in the very place we married, coming full-circle to find closure and acceptance

Full Circle – Paintings is a series of abstract expressionistic works that convey the complex emotions that erupt when a relationship is unilaterally ended, tearing apart a family and a life, intertwined. Each painting is a direct expression of a specific emotion felt at the time of pain, accompanied by a video installation of the artist smashing to pieces the one hundred and fifty vintage plates she gathered for her wedding reception. These elements, collected and suspended in space, represent the debris that remains, scattered in their shattered form – a reminder that though it is the pieces that make the whole, it is their relationship to each other and fundamentally their wholeness, that is paramount.

Long Gallery, November 20 – December 8
Exhibition Opening on Saturday 23 November from 2pm – 4pm. All welcome, please RSVP by email.
