Arthouse Gallery is excited to present a new series of whimsical paintings by Sydney artist Leah Fraser.
Leah Fraser began working on the pieces for this show when she was pregnant earlier in 2016. Contemplating the new life inside her prompted her to also meditate on the irrevocable link between birth and death. ‘It also made me think about transformation’ she recalls, ‘because birth and death are transformations of a kind – I was transforming into this vessel for new life and eventually into a mother.’
The works in this collection are inspired by creation myths, gods and goddesses associated with that role of originating life and the universe. ‘I liked that ancient mythologies tended to use a natural symbolic language’ says Fraser. Timeless, otherworldly beings donning ancient artefacts and tribal instruments coalesce with a colourful bounty of flora and fauna in silent communion.
