Veronica Cay: conversations with my aunt

Buderim-based artist Veronica Cay presents an exhibition of mixed media drawings, works on canvas and ceramic figures in ‘conversations with my aunt’. This series of new works are embodied with imaginary conversations the artist wishes she could have had with an audacious aunt who, in 1936, left her conservative family home in Toowoomba, Queensland, bound for Sydney’s National Art School, never to return. Cay reminisces on her aunt’s life with a pictorial storyboard rendered in dazzling colour and luminous light.
