I FINALLY GOT TO SEE MY TALENTED SISTER’S WORK AT THE ROMANCING THE SKULL EXHIBITION AT THE ART GALLERY OF BALLARAT
Maria Flores AKA Say Hola (my sister) has blessed the art gallery of Ballarat with her awesome art, in this case her pattern art was used a wallpaper backdrops and Papel Picados (pecked paper patterns). The exhibition was awesome, I love Skulls and everyone should see it.
Congratulations to my sister :)
A little bit about the exhibition:
The skull has entranced and fascinated generations of artists. looks at the depiction of the skull in art and examines why we continue to be so enamoured with this iconic symbol. The exhibition explores a range of themes including the skull as a reminder of our mortality, the use of the skull in addressing social and political issues, and the skull and crossbones as a symbol of piracy and rebellion.
will also look at the way in which the skull has been embraced as an important symbol in Mexican (Day of the Dead) celebrations. Prints by Mexican artists José Guadalupe Posada (1852–1913) have become synonymous with Day of the Dead and his (skull figures) are now firmly embedded in Mexican popular culture. More than twenty of his iconic prints will be introduced to Australian audiences for the first time.
Other highlights of the exhibition include a Nuremberg Chronicle dating from 1493 depicting one of the earliest (Dance of Death) images, and Australian artist Shaun Gladwell’s Virtual Reality work 2016, which debuted at Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. It will also include works by contemporary Australian artists Sam Jinks, Rona Green and Ben Quilty and specially commissioned works by Fiona Hall, Reko Rennie and Sally Smart.
