This exhibition presents the work of three women from three different countries. Australian, Anna Glynn studied Chinese painting in China, but adds her own interpretation of culture and ideas. Created with semi-transparent diaphanous paper and layering of inks she creates a narrative of contemporary myths and characters that draw upon both Eastern and Western cultures.
Angela Tay studied at the Chinese Academy of Fine Arts Hangzhou in 1980’s. Tay works within the possibilities of Chinese brush, ink water and paper. The process involves dipping ink and water to produce tones that gradually dissipate. Rie Obayashi, from Tokyo, Japan, stresses on the vague movement of life. Her work is simple in form and movement yet quiet in contrast.
