MAMA brings together three dynamic local artists in this new exhibition exploring themes of childhood, communication, and the femininity.
Bec Bromley Humphries
Singing Over the Bones: The Wild Feminine in 1000 Alabaster Stitches is the new body of work by Albury artist Bec Bromley Humphries. Fabric, paper and thousands of stitches create white organic forms and soft sculptures that call on the 'wild' and ancient aspects of womanhood.
These incredibly detailed works utilise traditional 'feminine' arts such as weaving and stitching, used in ways that create unusual, stirring pieces. Bec explores the mystical feminine archetype, reflecting on the way we gradually build and repair ourselves after periods of challenge or change.
Communicate with Me invites visitors to participate in the ancient art of handwriting. Reflecting on communication in the digital age, this exhibition ponders whether a handwritten letter still holds significance? How does it feel to write and express by hand? How does it feel to receive a handwritten letter?
In this installation, Beechworth artist Inga Hanover explores the concept of home, our desire to create a home, and the experiences that lead to a sense of home. She looks beneath the illusions of domestic stability and comfort, to reveal the disturbances and fractures that cab sit just beneath the surface.
