A small exhibition

While up having coffee with a friend at Cleveland I took time to drop into the Redland's Council Gallery.   It had an exhibition that I had already seen but in a side room was a small display by an indigenous artist, Claudia Moodoonuthi.  

Her work was all based around her two dogs that she had got from the RSPCA  as rescue dogs, Ruby and Hunter and her culture.  The dogs looked a bit wild to me but she obviously loves them.  She has a very interesting web page that gives a lot more information about her.

Camp dogs are often a subject for art but this is the first time I have seen them shown like this.

The paintings have that simple presentation and she has added wooden cut outs of the dogs in each one.   You could really feel the personality of each dog.

She is a very young artist, not long out of school, and it will be interesting to see how she develops.

I think the cutouts somehow bring the patterns to life, don't they!

Yes, I agree

It was such a lovely morning tea! Shame I had to dash away -- I would have loved to see this doggy exhibition, it looks great!
