opens Friday 16 February 6pm - Wan'din'in arts space Eumundi
“Monochromatic” is an exhibition of works by local artist Beatrice Prost opening at Wan’din’in arts space Eumundi on Friday 16
February at 6pm. Many Sunshine Coast residents will be familiar with Beatrice’s beautifully hand rendered 2D works and her manipulated images and
Beatrice’s works in monochromatic represent her local environment in a contemporary
theme, illustrating her obvious love of the Noosa River and her early love and memories as a ten year old developing black and white photography. This interest and love of the monochromatic state
has undoubtedly left a lasting impression as it continues to guide her work through her adult journey as an artist who is rediscovering “the magic in seeing and exploring our life and environment
in a monochromatic state.”
Her skill in manipulating her images and rendering a surface as a sculptor might move clay with a tool, illustrates her confidence
in various media including ceramics, photography and acrylics, all of which are featured in this exhibition.
Unlike previous works, Beatrice’s recently produced art contains a restricted palette.
“Even when highly representational, monochrome artworks are not a direct rendition of their subjects and are more likely to be abstractions from a reality. It can be a representation that calms the mind and lets us enter imagination and fine tune our receiving senses.”
All welcome to the opening - there will be a cash bar and nibbles. Wan’din’in is at the rear of Discover Eumundi Heritage and Visitor Centre – 73 Memorial Drive. Exhibition runs
until Sunday 18 March.
